We are excited to host an Original Kids Night at the Stratford Festival on Saturday, October 3! Original Kids past and present, along with their families are invited to join us at Rodgers & Hammerstein’s CAROUSEL. In the leading role of Julie Jordan is our own Alexis Gordon! Alexis grew up through Original Kids and even appeared in two of our Alumni shows, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee and most recently, Edges!
At the end of the show, Original Kids audience members are invited to an exclusive, intimate post-show discussion with Alexis on the balcony of the Avon Theatre!
Your ticket of $50.00 includes round-trip transportation to the Avon Theatre from the Covent Garden Market, great seats for the 8PM performance and the talkback with Alexis!
The bus boards outside the Market on Talbot Street at 5PM and will leave after the talkback following the performance (approx. 11PM).
Stratford describes the show: "Far ahead of its time in confronting the issues at the heart of a troubled relationship, this wrenching musical drama features a luscious score that includes “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” “If I Loved You” and “June Is Bustin’ Out All Over.” CAROUSEL is a true musical theatre classic and will be executed beautifully in the great tradition of high caliber musicals that are presented by the Stratford Festival. Original Kids mounted our production in 2012, directed by Sam Shoebottom. Look closely at some of the photos from our production and you may recognize some familiar faces!
