Carrie White is a misfit. At School she’s an outcast who’s bullied by the popular crowd, and virtually invisible to everyone else. At home, she’s at the mercy of her loving but cruelly over-protective mother. But Carrie’s just discovered she’s got a special power, and if pushed too far, she’s not afraid to use it.

Based on Stephen King’s bestselling novel, and set in present time, the musical of Carrie deals with central themes of high school bullying, acceptance, and even revenge. This gripping musical, newly reworked and fully re-imagined, features a book by the Lawrence D. Cohen, screenwriter of the original film, with music and lyrics by Academy Award winners Michael Gore and Dean Pitchford, who brought audiences films like “Fame,” and “Footloose.”
