Carousel is set largely in a small town on the coast of Maine, but moves from earth to heaven and back again. To instantly transport your audience to coastal Maine, look no further than TheatreWorld's PORTLAND HEAD LIGHTHOUSE--you can practically smell the briny air. VINTAGE AMUSEMENT PARK features an ornate carousel--but if you'd rather add your own, drops like CIRCUS TENT add a festive carnival feel. Add VINTAGE MIDWEST TOWN to create the sleepy seaside village where Julie and her daughter live. For the scenes in heaven, SUNKISSED BLUE SKY, with its celestial rays, will transport you "up there" in an instant. LAND AND SEASCAPE is a grassy cove, perfect to support your set pieces or stand on its own. SUNLIT OCEAN, too, works beautifully behind set pieces to add a coastal feel. With TheatreWorld by your side as you plan your production of Carousel, "You'll Never Walk Alone"!

Carousel Backdrops

In a Maine coastal village toward the end of the 19th century, the swaggering, carefree carnival barker, Billy Bigelow, captivates and marries the gentle millworker, Julie Jordan. Billy loses his job just as he learns that Julie is pregnant and, desperately intent upon providing a decent life for his family, he is coerced into being an accomplice to a robbery. Caught in the act and facing the certainty of prison, he takes his own life and is sent 'up there.' Billy is allowed to return to earth for one day fifteen years later, and he encounters the daughter he never knew. She is a lonely, friendless teenager, her father's reputation as a thief and bully having haunted her throughout her young life. How Billy instills in both the child and her mother a sense of hope and dignity is a dramatic testimony to the power of love.
