You ain’t seen nothing yet!

Based on the Stephen King novel of the same name, Carrie tells the familiar story of a lonely girl in a cruel teenage world.

Except this isn’t a story we’ve heard before.

Featuring a protagonist with telekinetic powers, a punchy pop-rock score, and a raucous ensemble, this musical sensation is a tale of high school revenge unlike any you’ve witnessed before – think Roald Dahl’s Matilda but with pig’s blood and added gore.

It’s going to be a night you’ll never forget!

This amateur production of Carrie: The Musical is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals.

Age guidance: 15+

Duration: 140 Minutes with interval

Content warning: Mentions of sexual abuse, blood, animal cruelty, death. Depictions of violence, physical abuse and religious trauma. Strobe lighting will also be used in the production.
