Rodgers and Hammerstein's Carousel
March 12 - March 13, 2014
Young millworker Julie Jordan falls for the brooding carousel barker Billy Bigelow. Both forsake their jobs in order to get married, but end up sacrificing a lot more when the unemployed Billy, panicked by news that Julie is pregnant, chooses to take part in a robbery. This stripped-down staging of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s timeless meditation on self-destruction, redemption, and romance will reimagine the classic musical with a focus on the intimacy and grittiness at its core.
