Photo Flash: Fountain Hills Community Theatre Presents CAROUSEL
Fountain Hills Community Theater is proud to announce the opening of Carousel, the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical that reigned on Broadway from 1945 through 1947 and was voted "the greatest musical of the twentieth century" by TIME magazine. Carousel, bursting with joy and exuberance, has become one of America's most beloved musical masterpieces and this FHCT production will move and delight audiences of all ages.

This moving, comic and ultimately redeeming musical follows the course of their romance - even beyond the bonds of life.
