Hailed by Time Magazine as the greatest musical of the 20th century and the personal favorite of composer Richard Rodgers, Carousel is not your typical musical. At turns sweet, heart-wrenching, frustrating, and funny, Carousel follows the troubled romance between carnival barker Billy Bigelow and millworker Julie Jordan. This stirring story raises important questions about love and family, and audience members will have the opportunity to process these questions with the cast and crew during post-show discussions.

Note: While Carousel has many moments of fun, humor, and joy, the family drama at its center features a few moments which may not be appropriate for all children. A character confides in her friend that her husband hit her. At another point, a character surrounded by police stabs himself (in a stylized, pantomimed manner) in a moment of desperation. Please contact director Andy Macdonald at amacdonald@cannonschool.org with any further questions on the story’s content.

The Ties That Bind

The theme for Cannon Theater Company's 2014-2015 season is "The Ties That Bind." We invite you to join us as we explore the power and complexity of family bonds with a zany British comedy in the fall and a poignant, classic musical in the winter. This season's stories will provide the families in our community with laughter, tears, and many valuable questions to discuss.

Hay Fever
By Noel Coward
November 13-15

The eccentric Bliss family of Noel Coward's classic comedy Hay Fever can be described in television terms as a cross between the Crawleys of Downton Abbey and the Pritchett clan of Modern Family. When each of the Blisses invites a friend to stay for the weekend without telling the other family members, chaos ensues as a group of unsuspecting visitors are drawn into the family's hilariously dysfunctional orbit.
