Unemployment, domestic violence, class divisions, criminal activity, and suicide: Fox News headlines? Or a Rodgers and Hammerstien musical! Happily the joys of youth, community, and the challenge and redemption of unconditional love make Carousel one of R & H’s most entertaining and deeply touching works.
Carousel is based on the 1909 play, Liliom, by Hungarian playwright Ferenc Molnar. Rodgers and Hammerstein reset the story in an 1880s Maine fishing village peopled by mill girls, sailors, whalers, and carnival folk.
If you’ve never seen Carousel performed, you will recognize many of the beautiful melodies from the show including If I Loved You, June is Bustin’ Our All Over, and You’ll Never Walk Alone. So mark your calendars and invite a friend to come with you for a special night of fellowship, beautiful music and transformation.
