Carrie : The Musical
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
The critics are raving about Carrie!
"There are many surprising things about North Raleigh Arts and Creative Theatre's production of Carrie: surprising that a musical based on Stephen King's book could be so involving; that a storefront community theater could stage it with such aplomb; that the large cast could be so uniformly skilled. ~ Review: 'Carrie' an engaging, moving theater production Roy Dicks, Raleigh News and Observer
"Perfectly timed in October, North Raleigh Arts and Creative Theatre's Carrie is sure to get you in the Halloween mood... the group numbers are sung well and sound great. The cast sounds good together and the songs which feature a large chorus do an excellent job highlighting skilled vocalists with harmony parts and riffs which sound fantastic. " ~ BWW Reviews: CARRIE at NRACT Is Just In Time for Halloween Larisa Mount, Broadway World
"If you're a fan of the Stephen King novel, if you're a fan of the movie ... heck, if you're a fan of fake blood and Halloween and things that go bump in the night, come check it out. Tragedy may never be this fun again." ~ Granados: A new take on the horror fave "Carrie: The Musical" Alex Granados, North Raleigh News
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).
Before becoming a musical, the novel Carrie was famously adapted for the screen in the 1976 Brian DePalma film of the same name starring Sissy Spacek. Since then, in its various incarnations, it has become an iconic pop culture brand all its own.
