An all-new, reimagined, environmental and completely immersive theater production of the legendary musical CARRIE will begin performances at La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts on March 12, 2015, with an official opening night set for March 18, 2015. La Mirada Theatre will be completely transformed into Ewan High School, putting audiences, for the first time ever, at the center of the action in this bold and thrilling twist on the now-classic musical.
Based on the novel by Stephen King, CARRIE reunites the original creative team and will include 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). Brady Schwind directs the production, with choreography by Imara Quinonez.
“The story of CARRIE has endured in the popular consciousness for decades, but no one has ever experienced it from this point of view,” producers Bruce Robert Harris and Jack W. Batman said. “The idea of placing the audience in the center of this world was just too tantalizing to resist. It’s going to be thrilling.”
Taunted by her peers at school and terrorized by her religious zealot mother at home, CARRIE tells the haunting tale of 17-year-old Carrie White. Lonely and tormented, Carrie discovers she has a shocking secret power. But when a prank at her high school prom goes horribly wrong, everyone finds just how powerful a secret can be...
Individual tickets go on sale on August 15, 2014 at 11:00 am and can be purchased at www.experiencecarrie.com or by calling the box office at (562) 944-9801. CARRIE will run through Sunday, April 5, 2015.
