15-Year-Old Melissa Campbell to Lead Showbiz Players' CARRIE THE MUSICAL, Begin. 9/20
15-year-old Melissa Campbell will be playing the title role of CARRIE in the Showbiz Players production of the regional premiere of CARRIE: THE MUSICAL. Melissa is a sophomore at Wyoming High School and has been participating in musical theater since the age of 9. She will play the part of Carrie White, a bullied and abused teenager who discovers within her the power to strike back.
It is based on the classic novel by horror master Stephen King and has gone unproduced since its notorious 1988 Broadway production. Now, fully revised and re-imagined for a new era, CARRIE now hews close to its source material. Melissa was drawn to CARRIE when she heard the off-Broadway CD and is very excited to be playing the role of Carrie White along with an outstanding cast.
CARRIE will play September 20-29 at the Carnegie, 1028 Scott Blvd., Covington, Ky. Tickets are $20.50 Adults/$18.50 Seniors & Students and can be purchased on line at www.showbizplayers.com or by calling 859-957-1940.
