Carrie: The Musical

October  6–9, 2022


Adapted from the imagination of American horror legend Stephen King, the haunting character of Carrie White is a teenage outcast who longs to fit in. At her high school, she’s bullied by the popular crowd, and virtually invisible to everyone else. At home, she’s dominated by her loving but cruelly controlling mother. What none of them know is that Carrie has just discovered she’s got a special power, and if pushed too far, she’s not afraid to use it.
