Hawthorne will celebrate the 70th anniversary of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s glorious musical Carousel, which opened in 1945, the same year that Hawthorne produced its first show.  Of course, Carousel was on the Broadway stage, while Hawthorne’s Hobgobblin House was staged in the humble auditorium at Ferguson’s Central School, but both Hawthorne and Carousel have shown real staying power. 

Carousel tells the story of a swaggering, carefree carnival barker, Billy Bigelow, who falls in love with a mill worker, Julie Jordan.  Years after he dies tragically, Billy is given a chance to return for a day to try to brighten the life of his unhappy 15-year-old daughter Louise. He watches as the school principal inspires Louise by assuring her that so long as she has hope in her heart, she'll never walk alone.  Director Adam Grun notes that the musical was the personal favorite of Rodgers and Hammerstein and says that “It still makes an emotional impact and is as relevant today as ever.”
