Music Mountain Theatre continues its 2021 Summer Season with “Carousel,” premiering Aug. 20.
The show will run for three weekends with performances wrapping up Sept. 5.
TIME magazine’s Greatest Musical of the 20th Century boasts a legendary score, including “If I Loved You,” “June Is Bustin’ Out All Over” and “You’ll Never Walk Alone.”
Carousel, the second musical by the team of Richard Rogers and Oscar Hammerstein II, revolves around carousel barker Billy Bigelow (Matthew Coules), whose romance with mill worker Julie Jordan (Lauren Krigel) comes at the price of both their jobs.
He participates in a robbery to provide for Julie and their unborn child; after it goes tragically wrong, he is given a chance to make things right.
Show times are 8 p.m. Friday and Saturdays and 3 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, at 1483 Route 179, Lambertville, N.J.
The theater strives to provide a safe environment for all with rigorous cleaning procedures and more recently, the installation of state-of-the-art air scrubbers to increase indoor air quality and reduce contaminants. Fully vaccinated patrons are permitted in the theater without a mask.
In addition to MainStage and Young Audience productions, Music Mountain Theatre provides year-round education in acting, musical theater, and dance. For information or to purchase tickets, visit musicmountaintheatre.org or call 609-397-3337.
