Carousel Trailer 26

Published: 26 August 2021

We are thrilled to share our trailer for Carousel – and the reviews keep coming!

‘Timothy Sheader’s cracking production wriggles free of sentimentality to find the darkness in the story, whilst still relishing the comedy and honouring the lush, haunting beauty of the score’ (Financial Times)

‘Tom Deering’s reorchestration is EXTRAORDINARY’ (The Observer)

‘Christina Modestou and John Pfumojena are a delight’ (Daily Express)

‘Drew McOnie’s choreography is witty, ironic and, later on, dreamlike and disturbing’ (The Guardian)

‘Emotionally complex, current and expertly conceived. A SOUL-STIRRING EXPERIENCE’ (London Theatre)

‘Declan Bennett’s Billy Bigelow is nuanced and complex’ (Musical Theatre Review)

‘Carly Bawden shines as Julie Jordan and Natasha May-Thomas as Louise delights in her professional debut’ (A Younger Theatre)

Our 2021 season ends 25 September.
