Carousel

Music by Richard Rodgers
Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II

Oxford Operatic Society returns to the Playhouse stage with Rodgers and Hammerstein’s powerful story of love and tragedy in the classic American musical Carousel.

Set on the New England coastline, Carousel tells of the ill-fated love affair between charismatic carnival barker Billy Bigelow and innocent millworker Julie Jordan. When tragedy strikes, Billy is given the opportunity for redemption, but is it too little too late?

Deeply touching, with a beautiful score that includes some of the most powerful music ever written for the stage, Carousel will capture your heart with songs including If I Loved You, June Is Bustin’ Out All Over, and You’ll Never Walk Alone.

Oxford Operatic Society is one of the county’s leading amateur companies with previous hits including Sweeney Todd and Carmen.

Chris Wood: None The Wiser

Songwriter of the Year – Spiral Earth Awards 2014

Criticised by an art school lecturer as having “a remarkable eye for trivia”, Chris Wood’s love of small things has made him one of England’s most vivid and arresting song writers. With gentle intelligence he weaves the tradition with his own contemporary parables.

Joan Armatrading presented Chris with the 2011 BBC Radio Two Folk Singer of the Year award before inviting him as special guest onto her Autumn 2012 tour. They played 51 cities and Wood found himself eavesdropping on conversations from pound shops to tea rooms, army recruiting centres to hotel saunas collecting the poetry of recession. His response is, None The Wiser, a fourth solo album released in Summer 2013. With humble hymns and sweeping statements from Alzheimer’s to William Blake, Wood lovingly takes the pulse of his homeland in what could be his best album yet.

“The title track alone is a masterpiece” ★★★★★ Independent

“Wood has honed his songwriting to perfection here… heartbreaking purity.” ★★★★★ Express

“Remarkable for the settings as much as the lyrics.” ★★★★ The Guardian

Tickets and Information

Tickets: Full Price £13.00 + fee*,  Concession £11.00 + fee*

Grounded

Cost of Performance/Event: £13 (concessions £11)
Other relevant information: Grounded is a gripping new play that challenges
our assumptions about war, family, and what it is to be a woman.
She’s a hot-rod F16 fighter pilot. She’s pregnant. Her career in the sky
is over. Now, she sits in a trailer in Las Vegas flying remote-controlled
drones over the Middle East. She struggles through surreal 12-hour shifts
far from the battlefield, hunting terrorists by day and being a wife and
mother by night.
