The Professional Conservatory Of Musical Theatre at NYFA Presents CARRIE THE MUSICAL
The Professional Conservatory of Musical Theatre @ the New York Film Academy proudly presents the New York City return of CARRIE, THE MUSICAL.
Fitting in can be a horror show! CARRIE, by Stephen King is the time honored coming of age novel. CARRIE, the Musical rocks off the page and into The Theatre @ NYFA for four performances this weekend!
Known as one of the most expensive flops in Broadway history, the musical (which has music written by Michael Gore, lyrics by Dean Pitchford, and a book by Lawrence D. Cohen based on the novel by Stephen King) has seen a resurgence this spring. Most recently, the hit CW series, RIVERDALE aired an episode in which a production of the cult musical was featured. The CW and New York Film Academy hosted a sneak-peak screening of the episode on campus in The Theatre @ NYFA on Tuesday April 17th that featured a Q & A with cast members Ashleigh Murray and Casey Cott.
The musical theatre department at the New York Film Academy (now known as the Professional Conservatory of Musical Theatre) was launched in 2009 with nine students in the first class. Nine years later, hundreds of students from all over the world have studied musical theatre at NYFA, and the department now boasts a healthy faculty roster of over 75 professionals working in the industry today.This brand new production set in present day is directed and choreographed by Stephen Nachamie (Assoc. Dir. She Loves Me), Daniel Lincoln serves as music director, and is produced by Kristy Cates (Charlie & The Chocolate Factory, Finding Neverland, Wicked), Mark Olsen, Jordan Neil Dragutsky, and David Ward.
The cast and creative team includes current and former students: Nathan Anderson, Michael Baccari, Samuel Jon Beard, Sean Ben-Zvi, Aly Carrigan, Lisbeth Celis, Noah Chartrand, Ryan Curley, Helora Danna, Charles Engelsgjerd, Luiza Francabandiera, Nicole Eve Goldstein,Rebecca Keenan, Savanna Sinead Kenny, Marije Louise Maliepaard, Jasmine McLeish, Lethabo Mofomme, Maria Mosquera, Grace Anne Strickland, Hannah Swanson, and Marina Vidal.
