Teenage outcast Carrie White has just discovered that she has a secret power. And when a cruel prank at the senior prom goes horrifically right, her peers are about to discover that there’s nothing scarier than a secret.

Carrie White is a teenage outcast who longs to fit in. At school, she’s bullied by the popular crowd, and virtually invisible to everyone else. At home, she’s dominated by her loving but cruelly controlling mother. What none of them know is that Carrie’s just discovered she’s got a special power, and if pushed too far, she’s not afraid to use it.

Set in the present in the small New England town of Chamberlain, Maine, Carrie: The Musical 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).

Based on Stephen King’s novel, Carrie: The Musical contains depictions of bullying, abuse, death, and violence, as well as simulated sexual content, and strong language. As such, Carrie: The Musical is not suitable for all ages.
