Carnival Book and lyrics by Michael Stewart and music by Bob Merrill
(April 21 – May 14, 2016)
In 1920’s France, Lili is a young woman who has lost her family. She makes her way to the carnival for work and is soon smitten with Marco the Magnificent, a magician who targets Lili as his latest conquest. Meanwhile, she begins to work with the carnival’s puppeteer Paul, a former dancer who was injured in the war. Though Paul falls in love with Lili, his bitterness and anger keep him from expressing his true feelings, pushing her farther into the arms of Marco. Featuring the classic, “Love Makes The World Go Round,” this rarely seen production will be in collaboration with the Milwaukee Public Theatre. Best suited for ages 13+.
In Tandem’s 2016-2017 season is sponsored, in part, by grants from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts, the United Performing Arts Fund, and CAMPAC (County Funding).
