Adapted from Stephen King's 1974 novel Carrie, it focuses on an awkward teenage girl with telekinetic powers whose lonely life is dominated by an oppressive religious fanatic mother.
When she is humiliated by her classmates at the high school prom, she unleashes chaos on everyone and everything in her path.
The musical features a book by Lawrence D. Cohen (who also penned the movie), with Music by Michael Gore, and Lyrics by Dean Pitchford.
The show stars Josephine Pellow as the titular Carrie White, and Margo Mikkelson as her overbearing, religious mother, Margaret. The production is directed by Zach Faust.
