Show details

First performed in the 1940s and revived many times since to this day, Carousel owes very little to the candy of the fairground and much to a tale of love and tragedy, of wasted opportunity but ultimate redemption.

In a Maine coastal village the carnival barker, Billy Bigelow, captivates and marries a naive millworker, Julie Jordan. Billy loses his job just as he learns that Julie is expecting their child. Desperate to provide a decent life for his family, he is coerced into committing a robbery.

Caught in the act and facing the certainty of prison, he takes his own life.

Years later Billy is allowed to return to earth for one day and he encounters the daughter he never knew. She is a lonely, friendless teenager, her father's reputation as a thief and bully having haunted her throughout her young life.

Come along to The Hexagon, Reading, in May next year to see what happens next. If you already know the story, then book tickets anyway to hear Rogers and Hammerstein greats including If I Loved You, June is Bustin' Out All Over and You'll Never Walk Alone.
