After last year’s outstanding production of West End hit “Whistle Down the Wind” our Intermediate AYMT group are returning to the Tivoli with this iconic American classic, “Carousel”.
Carnival barker, Billy Bigelow, falls in love with mill worker Julie Jordan. However, Billy proves to be an unreliable husband and when both lose their jobs, things go downhill. When Julie discovers she is pregnant, Billy is desparate to make quick money and agrees to work for con-man Jigger Craigin but during an armed robbery, Billy is killed. At the gates of Heaven, Billy is given a chance to redeem himself and returns to earth for one day where sees Julie and encounters his 15 year old daughter Louise, a lonely and unhappy teenager. Billy goes through various emotions until he manages to instil to both Julie and Louise that as long as they have hope in their hearts, they will “Never Walk Alone”. This giant of the musical stage remains timeless and starbright with such well known songs as “Mister Snow, “If I loved You”, “June is bustin’ out all over” and the immortal “You’ll Never Walk Alone”.
