In CAROUSEL, headstrong carnival barker Billy Bigelow falls for the demure young Julie Jordan, and their love story transcends time and death itself. Years after his death, he is given the chance to return to earth for one day, where he hopes to teach his troubled daughter an all-important lesson about love.

Rodgers and Hammerstein's most grandly romantic musical, CAROUSEL boasts a score bursting with classic songs, including "If I Loved You," "June is Bustin' Out All Over" and "You'll Never Walk Alone."

CAROUSEL is directed and choreographed by Stacey Flaster, with music director Roger L. Bingaman conducting the 30-piece orchestra.

Casting includes Cooper David Grodin (Billy Bigelow), Natalie Ford (Julie Jordan), Elizabeth Lanza (Carrie Pipperidge), George Keating (Enoch Snow) and Winifred Faix Brown (Nettie Fowler).

The design team includes Tom Burch (Scenic), Deborah Lindell and Mealah Heidenreich (Properties) Nikki Delhomme (Costumes), Sienna Macedon (Hair and Make-Up), Andrew Meyers (Lighting), Miles Polaski (Sound), Katie Beeks (Stage Manager) and Paige Keedy (Production Manager).

The Opening Night reception for CAROUSEL is sponsored by Campagnola Restaurant, Evanston.

CAROUSEL is Light Opera Works' second show of 2010. The season will continue with Jones and Schmidt's I DO! I DO! (October 3 - November 14) and end with Jerry Herman's HELLO, DOLLY! (December 26 - January 2). Discounted ticket packages are still available.

Ticket prices for CAROUSEL range from $32 to $92. Ages 21 and younger are half price. To order tickets, or for more information, call the Light Opera Works box office at (847) 869-6300 or order 24 hours a day online at www.lightoperaworks.com
