(Midland, Pa.) Lincoln Park Performing Arts Center, located in Midland, Pennsylvania, is presenting Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Carousel. The show opens June 17th and runs June 18, 19 and 24-26.
Voted the best musical of the 20th century by Time Magazine, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Carousel is a giant in musical theatre. This haunting love story about a tragic anti-hero, and the wife and child he leaves behind, features some of the most powerful music ever written for the stage. Declared to be his favorite by composer Richard Rodgers, this magical and majestic classic embodies both the grey areas of life and the Golden Age of Broadway. Show stopping numbers include stalwarts of American music such as “If I Loved You,” “You’ll Never Walk Alone” and “June is Bustin’ Out All Over”.
“Originally opening on Broadway in April of 1945, just five months before the end of World War II, Carousel served as a beautiful story of hope, loss, and the power of love for audiences who at the time were still reeling from the enormous losses of the Second Great War,” observed Justin Fortunato, Producing Artistic Director of Lincoln Park Performing Arts Center. “With everything going on in the world today, and the seemingly insurmountable darkness that can encroach, this show continues to be a place where audiences and artists alike are reminded that no one walks alone in this life. The beauty, loss, and hope in this show make it an exhilarating experience at the theater.”
