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.
