ORONO, MAINE (WABI) Just in time for Halloween, Some Theatre Company presents, "CARRIE the Musical" based on the novel by much-loved local author, Stephen King. CARRIE, King's fourth novel, but the first to be published began life on a portable typewriter that belonged to his wife Tabitha. Released on April 5, 1974, with an approximate first print-run of 30,000 copies. CARRIE is set primarily in the then-future year of 1979 and revolves around Carrie White, Chamberlain High Schools outcast misfit. At school, she's bullied by the popular crowd and virtually invisible to everyone else. At home, she's at the mercy of her loving but cruelly over-protective mother. But Carrie's just discovered she's got a special power, and if pushed too far, she's not afraid to use it.
"CARRIE" the Musical is an immersive experience and from the moment the audience walks into the space, they will be entering Carrie's world. Audience members will be inches away from the action and very much part of the story. Unlike traditional productions, this will be a unique theatre experience unlike anything theatre goers in the area have experienced before.
Performances are Oct 31st, Nov 3rd, 4th, 5th, 10th, 11, 12th.
