Carrie: The Musical

Arts Bank Theater

Directed by Robert Phillip Smith '14 (Directing, Playwrighting and Production), choreographed by Savanah Knechel '14 (Directing, Playwriting, & Production '14) and music direction by Mike Pacifico '16 (Composition).

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 “Carrie” musical 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”).
