The University of Texas at Tyler School of Performing Arts’ music department will present three performances of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “Carousel” in the UT Tyler R. Don Cowan Fine and Performing Arts Center, Dr. Molly Johnson, director of opera and musical theater, announced.

Shows begin at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 20 and Saturday, April 21, with a 3 p.m. matinee on Sunday, April 22.

General admission tickets are $10 each. There is no admission charge for UT Tyler students with valid student identification. Tickets for UT Tyler faculty and staff and other students (with ID) are $5. Tickets for seniors are $8. All tickets are available at the door (cash or check only).

“It's easy to understand why – of all the shows they created – ‘Carousel’ was Rodgers’ and Hammerstein’s personal favorite. In celebration of UT Tyler’s 40th anniversary, Dr. Keith McCoy, charter member of the university, will appear as a guest artist in the role of ‘Starkeeper/Dr. Seldon,’” Johnson said.

For more information, email Johnson, mjohnson@uttyler.edu, or call 903.566.7490.
