"Carousel" to Play Fallon in November

Western Nevada College Fallon will offer the classic American musical "Carousel" November 8-10 and 15-17. Shows will be at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at the Churchill County High School Theater, 1222 S. Taylor St.

Rodgers & Hammerstein's "Carousel" is the story of a small town girl who falls in love with a carnival barker who has a bad reputation. This story of love, consequences and redemption, portrayed within the setting of a close-knit New England fishing community, explores the issues of social class and conduct.

"The college is so pleased to be able to offer our sixth wonderful musical theatre experience to the Fallon students and community," said Fallon Campus Dean Bus Scharmann. "I am always impressed with the commitment demonstrated by the theatre students and production team members who present such fantastic shows."

The production team will include Mary Myers as director, Noreen Swenson as musical director, Debra Edwards as choreographer, Glen Perazzo as set designer, and Scott Thompson as artistic director. Anne Hyde will wear a new hat in this year's show as the assistant director, along with two new members, Adonna Crowley as costumer and Brittney Edwards as assistant choreographer.

"Over the past six years, I have been very fortunate to work with my 'dream team' of production team members, advertisers, and community volunteers," said Kathy McGee, show producer. "It is truly a collaborative effort to fit all the pieces of the show together. I am so grateful for everyone's support of this wonderful production."

"We are blessed with an especially talented cast; to hear a gifted vocalist sing 'If I Loved You' and 'When You Walk Through a Storm,' as well as the terrific company numbers, will be a special treat," said Myers. "The dance numbers are very exuberant and athletic. I gasp every time they throw someone into the air."

Tickets will go on sale at WNC Fallon on Monday, Oct. 8. Prices are $12 for adults, $10 for senior citizens, and $8 for children 12 years and younger. Info: 775-423-5186.
