Carrie: The Musical

The West Virginia University School of Theatre and Dance presents “Carrie: The Musical,” based on Stephen King’s classic horror tale, October 20 – 23, 2023 at the Metropolitan Theatre, Morgantown, WV.  Carrie: The Musical features a book by Lawrence D. Cohen with music by Michael Gore and lyrics by Dean Pitchford. 

Set in the small fictitious New England town of Chamberlain, Maine, Carrie: The Musical tells the story of Carrie White, a teenage outcast bullied and mocked at school for being different while dominated at home by her cruel and controlling mother. Within this life of constant sadness and pain, Carrie discovers special powers where just her thoughts make simple objects move; powers she tries to control but ones making her a threat to anyone who crosses her.
