The Maine Premiere!
Directed by Edward Reichert
Musical Direction by Kellie Moody
Corthell Concert Hall comes alive with the newly reworked version of this gripping tale set in present-day Maine. Carrie White is a misfit teen. At school, she's bullied by the popular crowd. At home, she's at the mercy of her loving but cruelly over-protective mother. But Carrie soon discovers she has a special power, and if pushed too far, she's not afraid to use it.
This cult prom-queen musical is the perfect recipe of exciting, subversive and provoking fare for Halloween weekend.
"There's never been a musical like her!"
