Carousel : South Staffs Musical Theatre Company
In a Maine costal village toward the end of the 19th Century, the swaggering, carefree carnival barker, Billy Bigelow, captivates and marries the naive mill worker, Julie Jordan.
Billy loses his job just as he learns that Julie is pregnant and, desperately intent upon providing a decent life for his family, he is coerced into being an accomplice to a robbery. Caught in the act and facing the certainty of prison, he takes his own life and is sent up there.
Fifteen years later, he is allowed to return to earth for just one day, where he encounters the daughter he never knew he had. She is a lonely, friendless teenager, her father's reputation as a thief and bully having haunted her throughout her young life. How Billy instils in both the child and her mother a sense of hope and dignity is a dramatic testimony to the power of love.
An incredibly powerful book of the musical theatre and an extraordinary score from Rodgers make CAROUSEL one of the greatest musicals of all time and notably Rodgers and Hammerstein's favourite of their own shows.
Featuring the best-loved tunes, The Carousel Waltz, If I Loved You, June Is Bustin' Out All Over and the haunting You'll Never Walk Alone, CAROUSEL is simply unforgettable.
