Carousel at Fisher Auditorium
March 3, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - March 4, 2022 @ 9:30 pm
Presented by the IUP Department of Music and the Department of Theatre, Dance and Performance.
The second hit musical by the acclaimed writing team after their tremendous success with Oklahoma! Carousel includes the well-known songs “If I Loved You”, “June Is Bustin’ Out All Over” and “You’ll Never Walk Alone”. Set in late 19th century coastal Maine, Billy Bigelow, a swaggering, carefree carnival barker, falls in love with and marries the sweet but naive millworker Julie Jordan. After the marriage costs them both their jobs, and dwarfed by the immensity of their situation, Billy’s tragic effort to provide for his wife leads each of them on a different and difficult path toward forgiveness. A story about the triumph of the human spirit in the face of seemingly impossible odds.
“Oklahoma! is about a picnic, Carousel is about life and death.” —Stephen Sondheim
CAROUSEL is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of The Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization.
