The girl, the blood, the power. From its infamous roots in the pantheon of horror, you've never seen a musical thriller quite like this!

“A stunning, bloody explosion of chaos and Mayhem… at once gripping, horrifying and beautifully moving. Powerful, compelling theatre at its best.” - The orange county register

Carrie the Musical is a deliciously dark and visceral production about a prank gone horribly wrong. When high school bullies and a twisted evangelical mother terrorise 17-year old Carrie White, a primal and destructive power is unshackled, hell bent on retribution and out for blood!

Based on the legendary novel by Stephen King, this harrowing tale of terror and full-throttle musical experience exposes the darkness within us all.

So, pick your date to the dance and meet this year's reigning prom queen – up close and personal. It’s going to be a night you’ll never forget!

Please note: Carrie the Musical contains colourful language, adult themes and disturbing scenes. Not suitable for children. Audience members in the front row may get splashed by blood effects used in the show.

Carrie the Musical is presented by permission of Origin Theatrical on behalf of R&H Theatricals: www.rnh.com. It is a theatrical adaptation of Stephen King's first published novel, Carrie, with the musical book written by Lawrence D Cohen (screenwriter of the classic film), music by Michael Gore (Fame, Terms of Endearment) and lyrics by Dean Pitchford (Fame, Footloose).

The Creative Team:
Carrie the Musical is brought to New Zealand by Witch, a Wellington-based theatre company recently founded by Ben Emerson (Director for Carrie) and Jennifer Howes (Production Manager for Carrie).

Witch aims to create exciting and visceral theatre for the local stage and to fulfil audiences with emotional dynamism while strengthening and upholding passionate, local artistry. Witch exists to connect and share in those exceptional moments in art, where all else fades away and something clicks, creating something truly magical.
