Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Carousel

Step right up! Love is a wild ride

“One of America’s finest theatrical achievements,” Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Carousel follows the ups, downs, round and rounds of life and love. Muddling through small town expectations, meager means and conflicting dreams, Julie, Billy and their daughter Louise learn “You’ll Never Walk Alone.”
