What You'll Get
Experience Rodgers and Hammerstein's Carousel, which Time magazine called the greatest musical of the 20th century, at the Rockwall High School Performing Arts Center. In Carousel, swaggering, carefree carnival barker Billy Bigelow captivates and naive millworker Julie, and they marry. Just as they learn that Julie is pregnant, Billy loses his job. Desperate to provide a decent life for his family, he allows himself to be coerced into taking part in a bank robbery. Of course things go awry, and rather face prison time he takes his own life and is sent "up there." Fifteen years later Billy gets the chance to return to Earth for just one day, encountering the daughter he never knew. She's now a lonely, friendless teenager, and her father's reputation as a thief has haunted her throughout her young life. How Billy instills in both his 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 together, Carousel was Rodgers and Hammerstein's personal favorite.
