Celebrating its 75th Anniversary, Carousel is the second musical written by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II and features one of the most glorious scores in musical theater history. MTH’s production will feature an 11-piece orchestra, live on stage.
Due to COVID-19, this production was moved from March/April, 2020 to August/September. We anticipated generating a significant amount of ticket revenue for this show, and we expected that revenue in March/April ~ to help us cover artist salaries, production expenses (most of which we had to pay in advance), as well as salaries and health insurance for our MTH staff.
Here are some insider videos:

Before every MTH show, MTH Founder George Harter gives a pre-show talk highlighting the historical significance of the musical and offering some context for our patrons. We worked hard to capture this on video for you. Enjoy.
