The Story:

"Carousel" is a tale of romance and tragedy, hope and redemption, set in a gritty nineteenth-century Maine mill-and-seafaring town. It centers on the unexpected and rocky romance of a tough drifter, carnival barker Billy Bigelow and Julie Jordan, a willful mill girl

Together they face the consequences of their rash choices – particularly after Billy falls in with the raffish sailor Jigger Craigin.

Also told is the tale of romance between Julie's effervescent pal, Carrie and fisherman Enoch Snow , who dreams of success and a big family.
