Backstage Utah: Utah Repertory Theater Company’s “Carousel” at the Murray Theater

“The singers in the production were among the best I have ever heard. I was unable to pick out anyone in the production that was weaker than others in the group. Music Director Melissa Thorne should be very proud of the work that she and the cast has done. The four leads Julie, Billy, Carrie and Mr. Snow were outstanding. I was also very impressed by the male ensemble and the amount of energy in the number ‘Blow High, Blow Low.’

“The other vocal stand out was ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone,’ sung by Nettie Fowler played by Serena Kanig Benish. Benish’s voice has a very nice operatic quality and she has remarkable control and accuracy with her instrument.”
