Rodgers & Hammerstein’s CAROUSEL

A Semi-Staged Production

07 Apr - 13 May 2017

Rodgers & Hammerstein’s iconic musical Carousel comes to the London Coliseum in a semi-staged production, starring Katherine Jenkins and Alfie Boe.

Fifteen years after getting caught up in an armed robbery and taking his own life, the charming carousel barker Billy Bigelow gets a chance to return to earth and make amends. Discovering that his daughter Louise has grown into a lonely, troubled teenager, haunted by her father’s legacy, Billy vows to restore pride to his family in the musical voted by Time as the greatest of the 20th Century.

With much-loved classic songs ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’, ‘If I Loved You’, ‘Mister Snow’ and ‘June is Bustin’ Out All Over’, Carousel promises to delight and uplift.

Lonny Price (Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet StreetSunset Boulevard) returns to the Coliseum to direct a strictly limited run of 41 performances.

Please note Katherine Jenkins is not scheduled to appear on Tuesday 18 April 2017.
