Olney Theatre Presents Carousel (VIDEO)

Olney Theater’s production of Carousel runs from April 15 through May 10 on the main stage.

Performances are Wednesday through Saturday at 8 p.m. with matinees on Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets range from $38 to $75 and are available online at Olney Theater Center website.

After a bank robbery gone wrong, carousel barker Billy Bigelow is given a second chance to make things right for the love-of-his-life Julie Jordan and the child he never got to meet. Featuring some of the form’s best-loved songs: “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” “June Is Bustin’ Out All Over,” and “If I Loved You.”

Take a look at Olney Theatre’s Behind the Scenes video:

“It’s got unforgettable characters, moments of pure theatrical magic and the lushest and most resonant music Rodgers and Hammerstein ever wrote, centered on a passionate quest for redemption,” says Olney Theatre Center Artistic Director Jason Loewith. “I’m trying not to feel too much pressure, but it’s kind of the greatest musical of all time.”
