About The Show

 Performed on April 17, 18 & 19, 2015 at the Windham High School.

The 1945 work was adapted from Ferenc Molnar's 1909 play "Liliom" transplanting the setting to the Maine coastline. The story revolves around Billy Bigelow, the carousel barker, whose romance with millworker Julie Jordan comes at the price of both their jobs. He attempts a robbery to provide for Julie and their unborn child; after it goes wrong, he is given a chance to make things right. A secondary plot line deals with millworker Carrie Pipperidge and her romance with ambitious fisherman Enoch Snow. The show includes the well-known songs "If I Loved You", "June Is Bustin' Out All Over" and "You'll never walk alone". Richard Rodgers later wrote that Carousel was his favorite of all his musicals.
