"Carousel" To Be Staged in March
Matinee on Sunday, April 1
“Carousel,” the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical which reigned on Broadway from 1945 through 1947 and then again as a movie in 1956, will be staged on Fairleigh Dickinson University’s College at Florham campus in Dreyfuss Theater by the students of FDU’s Theater Department, from Wednesday, March 28 through Saturday, March 31 at 8 p.m., with a 2:30 matinee on Sunday, April 1.
Voted “the greatest musical of the twentieth century” by TIME magazine, “Carousel” is set in a small Maine fishing village and focuses on Billy Bigelow, a rough and temperamental carnival barker and Julie Jordan, an innocent village girl. The musical follows the course of their tortured romance – even beyond the bonds of life.
The score of “Carousel” includes some of Broadway’s memorable melodies - “If I Loved You,” “June is Bustin’ Out All Over,” “When the Children are Asleep,” and the classic “You’ll Never Walk Alone.”
Tickets are $10 and may be purchased at the door or by calling 973-443-8644 ext. 4.
