C A R O U S E L

to be presented at the Groton Performing Arts Center on

March 16, 17, and 18

Music and Lyrics by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II

Named BEST MUSICAL OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY by Time Magazine, 1999

In a Maine coastal 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.” Billy is allowed to return to earth for one day and, time being what it is “up there,” fifteen years have passed and he now encounters the teenage daughter he never knew. She is a lonely, friendless child, her father’s reputation as a thief and bully having haunted her throughout her young life. How Billy instills in both the child and her mother a sense of hope and dignity is a dramatic testimony to the power of love. It’s easy to understand why, of all the shows they created, CAROUSEL was Rodgers & Hammerstein’s personal favorite.

Show times are Friday, 7:00 pm, Saturday, 7:00 pm and Sunday matinee, 4:00 pm

Ticket prices are $10 General Admission, $8 Seniors and $5 Students
