*Musical: Rome Capitol Summerstage presents CAROUSEL
Thursday-Saturday, July 14-16, 7:30 pm
a Maine coastal village toward the end of the 19th century, the
swaggering, carefree carnival barker, Billy Bigelow, captivates and
marries the naive millworker, Julie Jordan. Billy loses his job just as
he learns that Julie is pregnant and, desperately intent upon providing
a decent life for his family, he is coerced into being an accomplice to
a robbery. Caught in the act and facing the certainty of prison, he
takes his own life and is sent 'up there.' Billy is allowed to return
to earth for one day fifteen years later, and he encounters the
daughter he never knew. She is a lonely, friendless teenager, her
father's reputation as a thief and bully having haunted her throughout
her young life. How Billy instills in both the 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, Carousel was Rodgers & Hammerstein's personal favorite.
