Based on the bestselling novel by Stephen King, Carrie: The Musical explores the trials and tribulations of high school. The unique Stephen King twist rivals any previously seen on the stages of Broadway.
While many people remember the original story of Carrie as one of gore and horror, Louis Ellis Productions has chosen to take a different route. Using the 2012 revival version of the show, Director Hayden Tonazzi has chosen to focus on the humanity of Carrie White with a reworked and fully re-imagined vision of this gripping tale of an outcast.
Bullied by the in-crowd, virtually invisible to everyone else, and at the mercy of her cruel and controlling mother. Carrie: The Musical is a night of theatre that drives home a clear message to today’s youth: when pushed to their limits, everyone has their breaking point. Carrie: The Musical features a book by Lawrence D Cohen (screenwriter of the classic lm), music by Academy Award winner Michael Gore (Fame, Terms of Endearment) and lyrics by Academy Award winner Dean Pitchford (Fame, Footloose).
The show boasts an absolutely outstanding cast of both celebrated and emerging actors within the Australian musical theatre scene. Talent includes Michele Lansdown (Birdie Productions’ The Little Mermaid and Squabbalogic’s The Drowsy Chaperone) as Margaret White, Carrie’s mother. Emerging star Kirralee Elliott (Flaming Howard Productions’ The Colour Orange and MUSE’s Legally Blonde) shines as the shy unsuspecting lead, Carrie White.
