Billy Bigelow and Julie Jordan played by Paul Knowles and Alice Helm take a trip to Happy Mount Park, Morecambe to ride the Rastelli Carousel in preparation for Morecambe Amateurs production of the Rogers and Hammerstein musical Carousel which is being presented at the Grand Theatre, Lancaster.

Set in New England around 1873, it tells the story of Billy Bigelow (Paul Knowles) who works on a carousel and meets and falls in love with a local girl Julie Jordan (Alice Tabitha Helm).

Billy becomes violent and during a robbery he dies.

Years later he is allowed to return to earth for one day to make amends.

The pebbles painted to promote Morecambe Amateur's next show.

One boy in the chorus Isaac Murie, aged eight, has been painting pebbles to advertise the show (pictured).

The pebbles have been hidden around Morecambe for people to find.

Carousel opens on June 26 to Saturday, June 30, 7.15pm. with a Saturday matinee at 2.15pm.
