AUGUST

Hawthorne Players Present:  CAROUSEL

July 31 – 8:00 p.m.    Aug 1 – 8:00 p.m.
Aug 7 – 8:00 p.m.    Aug 8 – 8:00 p.m.    Aug 9 – 2:00 p.m.

A smooth-talking carousel barker, Billy Bigelow, falls in love with and marries a mill worker, Julie Jordan. Years after he dies tragically, he is given a chance to return for a day to try to brighten the life of his unhappy 15-year-old daughter Louise. She is a lonely, friendless teenager, her father's reputation 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 is easy to understand why, of all the shows they created, CAROUSEL was Rodgers and Hammerstein's personal favorite.
