This reimagining of the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical transports the American classic to 1950s Hull.
Yet the poignant story remains as a bustling fair rolls into town and the smooth-talking carnival worker Billy falls in love with local girl Julie.
Featuring the much-loved songs of the original as well new characters from Hull’s past, this tale of star-crossed lovers sees Billy’s rebellious streak lead to tragedy.
