Date: Thursday, July 31, 2014
Time: 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel tells the story of the tragic romance between carousel barker Billy Bigelow and mill worker Julie Jordan. Based on Ferenc Molnar’s 1909 play Liliom, Carousel has been lauded as the greatest musical of the 20th Century by Time Magazine.


The TONY™ Award Winning Musical features such famous numbers as, “If I Loved You,” “June Is Bustin’ Out All Over,” and “You’ll Never Walk Alone.” The Greensboro Arts Alliance & Residency’s production, directed by Associate Artistic Director Charles McAteer, features New York actors Kelly Pekar (Julie Jordan), Nina Riley (Nettie Fowler), and Jacey Powers (Carrie Pipperidge), as well as Vermont actors John Marshall (Billy Bigelow) Elye Alexander (Jigger Craigin), Brian Kilday (Enoch Snow), Krissie Ohlrogge (Mrs. Mullin), and Ed Donlon (Starkeeper/Dr. Seldon), among many others. This production also features the brilliant ballerina Bethany Lange (Louise) in the Act II pas de deux ballet. GAAR Music Director Justin Jacobs returns, assisted by Mark Violette (Musical Director for QNEK’s SUDS). Come see what Rodgers & Hammerstein regarded as their favorite creation: the great American musical, Carousel.
