By Rodgers & Hammerstein

Directed by Chris Pazdernik

In a small New England village, there is a love affair between Billy Bigelow, a travelling carnival man, and Julie Jordan, a local factory worker. Desperate for money after learning that he is soon to become a father, Billy is killed during an attempted robbery. Several years later, when he is allowed to return to earth for a short time, he seeks out the daughter of his union with Julie.

Auditions will be held on the following days:


5 Men, 5 Women, Large Chorus
All Saints Episcopal Church - 100 N. Drew Street, Appleton, WI from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
Scripts available for perusal at the Appleton, Neenah and Menasha Public Libraries
Please be prepared to sing 32 bars of a musical theatre song. It does not need to be from Carousel, but it should be from the Golden Age period Broadway (approximately, written before 1970). Please no contemporary songs (Andrew Lloyd Webber, Jason Robert Brown, etc.). Also, wear comfortable shoes for dancing.
Please note: Callbacks for Carousel will be held over the weekend of March 27 & 28. Cold readings from the script will be conducted during callbacks; it is best to be as familiar with the show as possible.
