Carrie:  The Musical

 April 27 - 29 & May 2 - 6

Garden City, NY – The Nassau Community College Department of Theatre and Dance will present Carrie: The Musical April 27 to April 29 and May 2 to May 6 at the Mainstage Theatre.

Carrie: The Musical — with book by Lawrence D. Cohen, lyrics by Dean Pitchford and music by Michael Gore — is adapted from the Stephen King novel. It focuses on an awkward teenage girl with telekinetic powers. An outcast at school, where she is bullied viciously for her differences, Carrie is also lost at home, with a fervently religious mother whose love traps her in its maw. When PE teacher Miss Gardner, kind classmate Sue Snell and boyfriend Tommy Ross reach out to try and help Carrie, it seems that for once, she might have a shot at being accepted. But Chris Hargensen, the class's most vicious bully, has other ideas. Pushed to the brink, Carrie's powers threaten to overwhelm her, and devour everyone around her in flame.

Tickets for Carrie: The Musical are $15.00 per person, discounted to $12.00 for those 55 and older. Free rush tickets are available to college students with valid ID on weeknights. These tickets are $5.00 for weekend performances. Performances are at 8:00 p.m.; Sundays at 3:00 p.m.
