North London's Arcola Theatre presents Rodgers and Hammerstein's Carousel beginning June 18 prior to an official opening June 23. 

The musical, which features the songs "If I Loved You," "June Is Bustin' Out All Over" and "You'll Never Walk Alone," continues through July 19.

Luke Fredericks directs a cast that includes Gemma Sutton, Tim Rogers, Michael Carolan, Joseph Connor, Valerie Cutko, Katrina Dix, Anton Fosh, Charlotte Gale, Paul Hutton, Richard Kent, Amanda Minihan, Joel Montague, Susie Porter and Vicki Lee Taylor. 

Here's how the production is billed: "When mill worker Julie Jordan falls for the masculine charms of Billy Bigelow, a chain of events unravels that suggests their destiny is predetermined by the hand of fate. Set on the New England coastline, against the backdrop of the Great Depression, this reimagining of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel charts a story of recklessness, regret and redemption."



The creative team comprises Larry Blank (musical supervisor), Andrew Corcoran (musical director), Lee Proud (choreographer), Stewart Charlesworth (set and costume design) and Catherine Webb (lighting design).
