The Story

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… Carrie-The Musical is based on Stephen King's bestselling novel and film. The show's original authors have newly reworked and fully re-imagined this gripping tale for a new production that debuted Off-Broadway in 2012. The students in the Conservatory perform this musical on August 9-11, 2019.

Contains strong language and adult themes. Not recommended for children under 12 years of age.
