Carrie the Musical, based on the Stephen King blockbuster novel will be staged by Hunter Drama at the Civic Playhouse 21-24 August. A controversial production with a cult like status, it was written by Lawrence Cohen who was the screenwriter of the film and features music and lyrics by Academy Award winners Michael Gore (Fame, Terms of Endearment), and Dean Pitchford (Fame, Footloose)

 

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.

 

Dealing with issues around bullying, social isolation, abuse and feminine power, it’s a coming-of-age tale exploring themes of sin, revenge and redemption, with just a hint of melodramatic horror.
