Carrie White is a misfit. At school, she's an outcast who's 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…
Based on Stephen King's bestselling novel, the musical of Carrie hasn't been seen since its legendary 1988 Broadway production. Now, the show's original authors have joined with director Stafford Arima (Altar Boyz) and MCC Theater for a newly reworked and fully re-imagined vision of this gripping tale. Set today, in the small town of Chamberlain, Maine, 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).

About The Show:
Based on Stephen King’s bestselling novel, 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).
Carrie is the gripping tale of an awkward teen outcast with a powerful gift, her fanatically religious mother, and the classmates who push Carrie from unimaginable humiliation to devastating fury.
The Roles of Margret White and
Mr.Stephens/Reverend Moore have been cast.
Carrie White: Actress to play late teens. A painfully shy outsider who, in spite of her best efforts to belong, has been a victim of her classmates’ cruel jokes since childhood, as well as her mother’s strict, biblically-ordained control at home. She transforms from ugly duckling into graceful, and then vengeful, swan. Vocally, she must be capable of lyrical sweetness as well as fierce power.
Sue Snell: Actress to play late teens. Sue acts as a narrator to events of the past in which she was a participant. Sweet, straight-A smart and well-liked good girl who’s been popular her whole life – half of the Romeo-Juliet pair of every high school in America. She
finds herself participating in an unthinking act of cruelty that changes everything, and a moment of conscience causes her to embark on a different path that sets her apart from her peers and tests her. Vocally, she has a great pop ballad voice that delivers sweet sincerity and strength.
Tommy Ross: Actor to play late teens. Tommy is the most popular senior, varsity star athlete, valedictorian, and all-around handsome good-guy. Yet within this icon, also sweetly self-effacing and blessed with the quirky sensitivity of a poet who is not afraid to stand up to peer pressure and do the right thing. He is the Romeo to Sue’s Juliet. His voice should have an effortless pop quality.
Chris Hargensen: Actress to play late teens. Chris is a rich, spoiled-rotten, popular beauty who radiates a natural ringleader – and a bully. She’s arrogant, and has a sense of entitlement that makes her think she deserves to get her own way … and God help you if you cross her. She has serious daddy and anger management issues. Actress must have a powerful, rhythmic rock/belt voice.
Billy Nolan: Actor to play late teens. Now in his 6th year of high school, he’s a stupid-like-a-fox bad boy whose wise mouth troublemaking has led him to spend more time in detention than in class. Chris manipulates him to do her bidding. His voice is a wailing rocker.
Miss Gardner: Actress, Mid 30s – Mid 40s. The girls’ Physical Education teacher. Can be disciplinarian when the situation calls for it, but also a warm “fairy godmother” (vs. Margaret’s nightmare mother). Goes from angrily wanting to take Carrie and shake her in the shower to protective and encouraging Carrie to dream – only to find herself in a situation that’s way over her head. Actress must have a
warm voice with a solid alto belt.
Norma: Actress to play late teens. Gossipy and suck-up to authority, Norma is second in command to Chris’ queen bee. Fantastic pop/rock and contemporary musical theatre voice.
Frieda: Actress to play late teens. Sue’s brainy pal, she’s an easy going, get-along follower and a tireless extracurricular committee volunteer. Fantastic pop/rock and contemporary musical theatre voice.
Helen: Actress to play late teens. Giggly and easily shocked, her immaturity and need to belong make her the perfect example of the herd mentality. Fantastic pop/rock and contemporary musical theatre voice.
George: Actor to play late teens. Tommy’s jock wingman since childhood, George idolizes him. Perhaps a little too much… Fantastic pop/rock and contemporary musical theatre voice.
Stokes: Actor to play late teens. A bit of a nerd, he’s happy to be included as one of Tommy’s posse. Fantastic pop/rock and contemporary musical theatre voice.
Freddy: Actor to play late teens. The wise-cracking class clown and official yearbook photographer, he can’t believe any girl would give him the time of day. Fantastic pop/rock and contemporary musical theatre voice.
Teen Ensemble: A total diversity of colors, sizes and types to embody our particular American high school. Energetic and emotive pop/rock and contemporary musical theatre singing voices of all ranges.
CARRIE the Musical is presented through special arrangement with R & H Theatricals: www.rnh.com.
