Carrie White is a misfit. At school, she is an outcast who is bullied by the popular crowd and virtually invisible to everyone else. At home, she is at the mercy of her loving but cruelly over-protective mother. But Carrie has just discovered she has a special power and, if pushed too far, she is not afraid to use it. Based on Stephen King's bestselling novel, the musical version of Carrie has not been seen since its legendary 1988 Broadway production. Now, the show's original authors have crafted a newly reworked and fully re-imagined vision of this gripping tale. Recommended for mature audiences.

The glorious score includes such standards as “Good Morning,” “Make ‘em Laugh,” “You Are My Lucky Star” and the legendary “Singin’ in the Rain.”
