PLOT:

Carrie White is a misfit. At school, she’s an outcast whose bullied by the popular crowd, and virtually invisible to everyone else. At home, she’s at the mercy of her loving but cruelly
over-protective mother. But Carrie’s just discovered she’s got a special power, and if pushed too far, she’s not afraid to use it…

Carrie the Musical is a deliciously dark and visceral production about a prank gone horribly wrong. Based on the bestselling, legendary novel by Stephen King, this harrowing tale of
terror and full-throttle musical experience exposes the darkness within us all.
