Based on Stephen King's bestselling debut novel, CARRIE tells the gripping tale of an outcast girl bullied at school by the popular crowd, and at home by her loving yet cruelly over-protective mother. When Carrie discovers she can move things with her mind, she begins to exert her own power; and when a cruel prank at the prom pushes Carrie over The Edge, she harnesses that power to exact a ruinous revenge.
CARRIE the musical features a book by Lawrence D. Cohen (screenwriter of the classic film), music by Academy Award winner Michael Gore (Fame, Terms of Endearment), and lyrics by Academy Award winner Dean Pitchford (Fame, Footloose).
CARRIE the musical is presented through special arrangement with R & H Theatricals: rnh.com.
