CAL DRAMA students take a shot at romance and redemption in Carousel.

Billy, a carnival barker, and Julie fall in love at first sight at the amusement park and go for a walk together.

Despite warnings from others about Billy, and at risk of losing her job at the cotton mill, Julie won’t leave him.

Billy’s boss Mrs. Mullin fires him and after he packs his things, he learns that Julie lives at a boarding house and works at the cotton mill.

The couple tells each other their feelings and are married soon afterward.

The story takes a several twists and turns from there.

Graeme Linton is Billy and Brielle Dorais Fleming plays Julie.

Erika Loggin is Mrs. Mullin, Billy’s boss.

Greg Van Horne is “unsavoury” sailor Jigger, who turns Billy’s and Julie’s lives upside down.

Katie Hollett is Carrie, Julie’s friend and Rheann Armes is Nettie, Julie’s cousin.

The musical, written by Rodgers and Hammerstein, known for the Sound of Music and a whole host of other famous works, said that Carousel was their favourite work.
