THE MAKING OF "CAROUSEL"
An NCJW Collaboration with The Musical Theater Project
"Walk on, walk on, with hope in your heart, and you'll never walk alone." That's how Rodgers & Hammerstein ended their classic 1945 tale of star-crossed lovers Billy Bigelow and Julie Jordan - one of the most beloved of all Broadway musicals, Carousel. Join us and you'll hear the story of its creation along with every piece from the score including "If I Loved You," "Mr. Snow," "Soliloquy," "June Is Bustin' Out All Over" and the glorious "Carousel Waltz." It's an encore performance of a multi-media concert that sold out last year.
Hosted by: Bill Rudman and Nancy Maier with vocalists Jessica Cope, James Dickason, Jared Leal, Cynthia O'Connell and Fabio Polanco.
