Songs include “June is Busting Out All Over,” “If I Loved You,” and the beautiful “You’ll Never Walk Alone.”

ROLES

Billy Bigelow: late 20’s to 30’s – The charismatic barker for Mullin’s Carousel at a coastal carnival, Billy is strong and attractive, but proud, troubled, hard-headed and torn between right and wrong. Despite his inability to express his feelings, he truly loves Julie and tries to do the right thing.. Must be a strong singer and strong actor. Baritone.

Julie Jordan: 18 – 20. Julie is quiet and thoughtful, but still waters run deep. Sees something in Billy that no one else seems to see and stands by him no matter what. Julie has an inner strength and maturity in the second act as the mother of fifteen year old Louise. Must be a strong singer and strong actor. Soprano.

Carrie Pipperidge: 18 – 20. Lively and funny, but more than a little bit naïve, Carrie is Julie’s friend and co-worker. In love with Enoch Snow, Carrie offers a light-hearted balance to Julie’s seriousness. Matures into a somewhat disillusioned mother of 9 in the second act. Must be a strong singer and strong actor. Mezzo.

Mrs. Mullin: Over 30. Proprietress of Mullin’s Carousel, which was left to her by her late husband. She loves Billy in her way and is very jealous of any girl he pays attention to. NON-SINGING ROLE

David Bascombe: A dignified man of earned wealth, Mr. Bascombe is the owner of the Bascombe Cotton Mill factory, where both Julie and Carrie work. Also doubles in the ensemble.

Jigger Craigin: mid to late 30’s. Unscupulous sailor friend of Billy’s who ultimately leads Billy astray. A con man with a bit of humor and an eye for Carrie Pipperidge. Must be a good singer and a strong actor.

Heavenly Friend: Billy’s escort to the afterlife. Will double in the ensemble.

Starkeeper/Dr. Seldon: In the afterlife, the Starkeeper is the gentle and matter-of-fact manager of the “backyard of Heaven”. As Dr. Seldon, he is a gentle and respected country doctor, very reminiscent of the Starkeeper himself. NON-SINGING ROLE

Louise: Billy and Julie’s inquisitive 15-year-old daughter, on the verge of becoming a woman, but troubled and insecure. Central character in the “Carousel Ballet.” Will double in ensemble in Act 1. STRONG DANCER.

ABOUT THE SHOW

When Dr. Stockmann discovers that the water in the small Norwegian town in which he is the resident physician has been contaminated, he does what any responsible citizen would do: reports it to the authorities. But Stockmann’s good deed has the potential to ruin the town’s reputation as a popular spa destination, and instead of being hailed as a hero, Stockmann is labeled an enemy of the people. Arthur Miller’s adaptation of Henrik Ibsen’s classic drama is a classic in itself, a penetrating exploration of what happens when the truth comes up against the will of the majority.

Written by Arthur Miller
Adapted from Henrik Ibsen’s play

Directed by Melody Deatherage
