Mary Moody Northen Theatre, the award-winning producing arm of the St. Edward’s University Theatre Program, presents Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel April 7 - 17, 2011.

When mill-town girl Julie Jordan meets carnival barker Billy Bigelow on a carousel ride, her life is changed forever. Flirtation gives way to the unexpected power of love as the two are irresistibly drawn to each other in this glorious tale of love and redemption. The Tony-award-winning musical features June is Bustin’ Out All Over, You’ll Never Walk Alone and If I Loved You. With its splendid score and brilliant lyrics, Carousel was dubbed “the best musical of the Twentieth Century” by Time Magazine.
