The University Music Theatre Society is gearing up for its annual extravaganza, which this year is the enduringly popular Carousel.
The Playhouse, Whitstable, will resound with famous and well-loved show-tunes including ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ ‘June Is Busting Out All Over’ and ‘His Name is Mr. Snow.’
These occasions are always fantastically realised, with sets, direction and performances of a high standard. Rehearsals have been underway for several weeks, and the run of performances will be a fitting finale to all the hard work the students have put in – on top of working towards their degrees!
Music Theatre Society President Lucie Nash reveals that she’s highly excited about the show; “I can’t wait to see how people react to Carousel – it has been such an exciting few months putting it all together and everyone involved has worked incredibly hard. I have an extremely talented cast and I know they’ll do Rodgers & Hammerstein justice. ”
The cast features first-years Richard Simpson playing Billy Bigelow and Dominique Chapman as Julie Jordan.
Performances start on Thursday 31 March, and run until Saturday April 2nd, including a Saturday matinee. Tickets are selling fast: get yours while you can on-line here!
