Rodgers and Hammerstein's musical theatre bastion, Carousel comes to the Regents Park Open Air Theatre this summer. Beloved for their bold reimaginings of theatre classics the Regents Park Open Air Theatre invite you to witness Carousel as you've never seen it before, set against the stunning backdrop of London's premiere open-air theatre.

What is Carousel about?
When carefree carnival barker Billy Bigelow loses his job he is drawn back into the murky world of crime in order to provide for his new wife and unborn child. Caught in the act and facing a lengthy prison sentence Billy takes matters into his own hands and decides to end his life.
15 years later Billy is allowed to return to earth from 'up there' for one day only. When he's met with a bereft wife and an unhappy and lonely daughter, Billy is determined to make things right and repair the damage that has enveloped his family.
