(LAMBERTVILLE, NJ) -- Music Mountain Theatre (MMT) presents Carrie: The Musical from October 6-22, 2023. This is the thirteenth mainstage show of MMT's 2023 season, and perfectly timed for the Halloween season!
Adapted from Stephen King’s 1974 novel Carrie, MMT is bringing this horror classic to the stage with a book by Lawrence D. Cohen (screenwriter of the classic film), music by Academy Award winner Michael Gore (Fame, Terms of Endearment), and lyrics by Academy Award winner Dean Pitchford (Fame, Footloose).
Carrie: The Musical follows a young woman with telekinetic powers. Carrie White is an outcast at school, where she is bullied viciously for her differences while longing to simply fit in. Carrie is also lost at home, dominated by her loving but cruelly controlling mother. When PE teacher Miss Gardner, kind classmate Sue Snell, and boyfriend Tommy Ross reach out to try and help Carrie, it seems that for once, Carrie might have a shot at being accepted. But Chris Hargensen, the class’s most vicious bully, has other ideas. What none of them know is that Carrie’s just discovered she’s got a special power, and if pushed too far, she’s not afraid to use it and devour everyone around her in flame.
Marissa Spencer leads the cast of Carrie: The Musical, playing the title character while making her MMT stage debut. Lauren Brader, an MMT veteran, will also take the stage as Carrie’s mother, Margaret White, who’s misguided overprotectiveness of her daughter transcends into cruelty and outright abuse. The cast also includes Colby Langweiler, Jenna Parrilla Alvino, Soren Madsen, Brianna Kane, Cullen Hussey, and Roger Madding. The production is directed by Deven Miller.
Carrie: The Musical will run on the MMT stage from October 6-22, 2023, with 8:00pm evening performances on Fridays and Saturdays and 3:00pm matinee performances on Saturdays and Sundays. Discounted tickets are available for students, seniors, and members of the military, as well as for subscribers to MMT, and in group sales of fifteen or more. Tickets are available for purchase online.
