Directed by Brady Schwind and choreographed by Lee Martino, this immersive staging of CARRIE takes the legendary musical off the stage and puts the audience right in the middle of the action, back in the rooms and hallways of high school and, of course, with a prime seat at the prom. This production is based on the acclaimed run this past spring at the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts, with most of the original La Mirada cast.
CARRIE The Killer Musical Experience is produced by Bruce Robert Harris and Jack W. Batman, The Transfer Group, Michael T. Cohen/Robin Reinach, Kraige Block, and Joe Everett Michaels, in association with La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts. The associate producers are Amy and Ralph Cetrulo. The Executive Producer is Sunnyspot Productions.
Stephen King's original novel has sold over 4 million copies, was the basis of an Academy Award-winning film and four remakes, and is both one of the most beloved thrillers and one of the most banned books in United States schools. The story of 17-year-old Carrie White -- tormented by classmates at school and her bible-thumping mother at home - are continually relevant to audiences today as when the book was first published.
Based on the novel by Stephen King, CARRIE 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).
The cast includes Carly Bracco, Adante Carter, Misty Cotton, Valerie Rose Curiel, Bryan Dobson, Kevin Patrick Doherty, Rachel Farr, Jennifer Foster, Jon Robert Hall, Jonah Ho'okano, Ian Littleworth, Emily Lopez, Lyle Colby Mackston, Garrett Marshall, Chris Meissner, Tiana Okoye, Jane Papageorge, Kayla Parker, Jenelle Lynn Randall, Amy Segal, Michael Starr, Kimberly Ann Steele, and Victoria Strong.

CARRIE The Killer Musical Experience will be the first full scale musical to play the Los Angeles Theatre in its 84-year history. The historic Los Angeles Theatre at 615 South Broadway, was opened in January 1931, and was the last and most extravagant of the ornate movie palaces built on Broadway in downtown Los Angeles.
Designed by architect S. Charles Lee with a French Baroque-inspired décor, its majestic six-story main lobby and an auditorium of carved plaster ornamentation, mirrors, and cove-lit murals recall the glamorous days of 1930s Hollywood. The opening of the theatre was planned to coincide with the world premiere of Charlie Chaplin's latest film, City Lights. To ensure that the theatre would open in time, Chaplin ended up investing some of his own money into the project. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Los Angeles Theatre is a proud participant of the Bringing Back Broadway to downtown Los Angeles.
