Hal Leonard to Release Vocal Selections from CARRIE THE MUSICAL in January

Hal Leonard Will release vocal selections from CARRIE THE MUSICAL, which won the Off-Broadway Alliance Award for Best Musical Revival in 2012. The book is expected to hit hit shelves and online retailers on Jan. 20, 2014 for $16.99.

Hal Leonard's folio offers 18 songs from that revival: Alma Mater, And Eve Was Weak, Carrie, Carrie (Reprise), Do Me a Favor, Dreamer in Disguise, Epilogue, Evening Prayers, I Remember How Those Boys Could Dance, In, A Night We'll Never Forget, Once You See, Open Your Heart, Unsuspecting Hearts, When There's No One, Why Not Me?, The World According to Chris, and You Shine, plus unforgettable color photos.

Based on Stephen King's bestselling novel, the musical Carrie tells the infamous tale of a troubled teenage girl whose tortured social life is made more unbearable by her oppressive religious fanatic mother. Before becoming a musical, the novel Carrie was famously adapted for the screen in the 1976 Brian DePalma film of the same name starring Sissy Spacek. Since then, in its various incarnations, it has become an iconic pop culture brand all its own, making the Ghostlight Records release a highly-anticipated event.

The 2012 Off-Broadway production of Carrie was directed by Stafford Arima (Altar Boyz, The Secret Garden), with choreography by Matt Williams, set design by David Zinn, costume design by Emily Rebholz, lighting design by Tony Award® winner Kevin Adams (Spring Awakening, American Idiot), sound design by Jonathan Deans, projection design by Sven Ortel, fight direction by Rick Sordelet, wig and hair design by Leah J. Loukas. Performances of Carrie began January 31, 2012, at the Lucille Lortel Theatre (121 Christopher Street, NYC) and officially opened on March 1, 2012. All future performance rights to Carrie are licensed by R&H Theatricals (www.rnh.com).

CARRIE THE MUSICAL features Music by Michael Gore, Lyrics by Dean Pitchford, and Book by Lawrence D. Cohen, based on Stephen King's novel Carrie.
