GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - The Rodgers and Hammerstein musical classic, Carousel, opens at Gulfport Little Theatre August 7th with several performances running through August 16th.

The original Broadway production opened in 1945, and a movie version was released in 1956. The beautiful music of Rodgers and Hammerstein continues to enchant audiences today, more than 60 years after the team paired up in 1943 producing a long string of musical hits.

This local production is directed by Chester Delacruz.  It includes a cast of 35 talented performers. Chad Gibson and Pamela Jones play the leading roles, of star crossed lovers Billy Bigelow and Julie Jordan.
