Carousel the Musical
July 14-Aug. 6. Of all the shows they created, Carousel was Rodgers & Hammerstein’s personal favorite. A carefree carnival barker, Billy Bigelow, captivates and marries the naive Julie Jordan. Billy loses his job just as he learns that Julie is pregnant and in a desperate act becomes an accomplice to robbery. Facing prison, he takes his own life and is sent ‘up there.’ Billy returns to earth for one day fifteen years later and encounters the daughter he never knew. How Billy instills a sense of hope and dignity in both mother and daughter is a dramatic testimony to the power of love. Showtimes are Thursday-Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m.
