New Musical Celebrates Paragon Park
NORWELL (CBS) – If the names “Kooky Castle” or “Congo Cruise” mean anything to you, then you probably have fond memories of taking a trip to Paragon Park to ride the carousel at Nantasket Beach many years ago.
Now, you can relive those moments in musical form.
“Paragon Park The Musical” is being staged by the Company Theatre in Norwell.
Using multiple sets and costume changes, it takes the audience through different periods in time; from 1905 when the park first opened to the selling of the Paragon Carousel in 1985.
Organizers put in hours of research going though old photos, newspaper articles, and dozens of interviews.
The show features a volunteer cast of 50 and includes 18 original songs played by a 20 piece live orchestra.
