Photo Flash: First Look at New Immersive Production of CARRIE THE MUSICAL - Emily Lopez, Misty Cotton & More!

La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts, Bruce Robert Harris and Jack W. Batman, and The Transfer Group present the Los Angeles premiere of the all-new, reimagined, environmental and completely immersive theater production of the legendary musical CARRIE THE MUSICAL. Performances started at Southern California's La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts (14900 La Mirada Blvd.) on Thursday, March 12, 2015 for a limited engagement through Sunday, April 5, 2015. Opening night was last night, March 18, 2015. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Based on the acclaimed novel by Stephen King, this completely reimagined, developmental and immersive production of CARRIE THE MUSICAL will reunite the original creative team and will include a revised book by Lawrence D. Cohen (screenwriter of the classic film), lyrics by Academy Award winner Dean Pitchford (Fame, Footloose), and music by Academy Award winner Michael Gore (Fame, Terms of Endearment). La Mirada Theatre will be completely transformed into Ewen High School, putting audiences, for the first time ever, at the center of the action in this bold and thrilling twist on the now-classic musical.

Two-time Tony Award winning Broadway producers Bruce Robert Harris and Jack W. Batman (Pippin, Clybourne Park, On The Town) are working closely with Brian Kite, La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts and the creative team on this developmental production aimed for major productions around the country.

Directed by Brady Schwind, and with choreography by Lee Martino, the cast features Emily Lopez as Carrie White, Misty Cotton as Margaret White, Kayla Parker as Sue Snell, Jon Robert Hall as Tommy Ross, Valerie Rose Curiel as Chris Hargensen, Jenelle Lynn Randall as Miss Gardner, Garrett Marshall as Billy Nolan, Bryan Dobson as Mr. Stephens and Reverend Bliss, Michael Starr as George Dawson, Adante Carter as Dale "Stokes" Ullman, Ian Littleworth as Freddy "The Beak" Holt, Kimberly Ann Steele as Helen Shyres, Rachel Farr as Norma Watson, Teya Patt as Frieda Jason with Carly Bracco, Lyle Colby Mackston, Kevin Patrick Doherty, Chris Meissner and Amy Segal.

Taunted by her peers at school and terrorized by her religious zealot mother at home, CARRIE THE MUSICAL tells the haunting tale of 17-year-old Carrie White. Lonely and tormented, Carrie discovers she has a shocking secret power. But when a prank at her high school prom goes horribly wrong, everyone finds just how powerful a secret can be.

The creative team includes Stephen Gifford (set), Adriana Lambarri (costumes), Brian Gale (lights), Cricket S. Myers (sound), Jim Steinmeyer (illusion design), Paul Rubin (Flying Sequence Coordinator), Brian Kennedy (Music Director/conductor), Adam Wachter (music supervisor), Michael Donovan (casting), and Buck Mason (general manager). The Production Stage Manager is Heidi Westrom.
