Castleford amateur musical group Encore Theatre Company is staging a production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic Carousel next month.

The show will be at the Phoenix Theatre in Airedale from Wednesday June 14 to Saturday June 14 with performances starting at 7.15pm.

Carousel, which features the songs June is Bustin’ Out All Over, Clambake, and You’ll Never Walk Alone, tells the story of the doomed romance between carousel hawker Billy Bigelow and his beloved Miss Julie.

The original Broadway production opened at the Majestic Theatre on April 19, 1945, and a film version of the version of the musical was made in 1956, starring Gordon MacRae and Shirley Jones.

Tickets for Encore’s production cost £12 for adults, £10 for concessions, and £38 for a family ticket (two adults and two concessions) and can be booked by either calling 01977 246657 or online at etconline.org.uk
