Carrie the Musical
2:00 pm - 10:00 pm
1675 Discovery Street
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.Based on Stephen King’s first novel, Carrie features a book by Lawrence D. Cohen, who also penned the screenplay, and a score by Michael Gore (music) and Dean Pitchford (lyrics), who collaborated on the score to Fame. Originally premiering at Stratford-Upon-Avon via the Royal Shakespeare Company, Carrie went on to a Broadway engagement in May of 1988.
Carrie was next seen in a revised form in 2012 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre off-Broadway under the auspices of the MCC Theatre Company. It is this revised version that will be presented by Fighting Chance Productions in Vancouver.
Running October 7th to the 25th at the Jericho Arts Centre. Every Tuesday through Saturday at 8 PM, one 2 PM matinee on Saturday October 18th.
