Carrie: the Musical

Date: 25 Jun 2018

Based on the story by Stephen King, and the Brian de Palma film it spawned, Carrie: the Musical is a night of theatre with a clear message: when pushed to their limits, everyone has their breaking point.

A notorious Broadway bomb, Carrie was reworked by its original composer Michael Gore, lyricist Dean Pitchford and writer Lawrence D. Cohen, into a chamber musical that had a successful Off Broadway season in 2012.

Hayden Tonazzi directs. Lauren Anne Paul, Matt Laird, Rachel Tunaley, and Heather Campbell are among the cast.
