What's it all about?
When the charming Carousel Barker, Billy Bigelow falls in love with Julie Jordan, little do they realise that their relationship will end in tragedy. Fifteen years after getting caught up in an armed robbery, Billy gets the chance to redeem his past and restore pride to his family.
With much-loved classic songs “You’ll Never Walk Alone”, “If I Loved You”, “Mister Snow” and “June is Bustin Out All Over”, Carousel promises to delight and uplift.
Lonny Price (Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Sunset Boulevard) returns to the Coliseum to direct a strictly limited run of 41 performances.
A semi-staged version.
Please note: Katherine Jenkins will not be performing on 18 April 2017
What's the story?
Set in a coastal village in Maine, the carousel barker Billy Bigelow is known for his carefree attitude and confident swagger. But upon meeting Julie Jordan, a local millworker who is as naïve as she is charming, Billy’s world is changed forever. Billy marries Julie in a whirlwind romance, only to discover fairly early into their marriage that she is pregnant. This piece of news arrives just as Billy learns that he is to be made redundant. As his attitudes change and the weight of responsibility for his family falls upon his shoulders, Billy will go to great lengths to provide for his family. Even break the law.
