Musical, performed in the TCR Auditorium. Music by Michael Gore, Lyrics by Dean Pitchford, Book by Lawrence D. Cohen, Based on the novel by Stephen King
High school can be tough, especially if you’re Carrie White. Based upon Stephen King’s blockbuster 1974 debut novel “Carrie” and the classic 1976 movie, Carrie the Musical follows a teenage outcast who longs to fit in. At school, she’s bullied by the popular crowd and is virtually invisible to everyone else. At home, she’s dominated by her loving but cruelly-controlling mother. What none of them know is that Carrie has just discovered she has a special power — and if pushed too far, she’s not afraid to use it.

The Thanksgiving Play November 8 – December 1
Play, performed in the Grandon Studio. Written by Larissa FastHorse
Four (very) well-intentioned theatre people walk into an elementary school. The work at hand: a Thanksgiving pageant that won’t ruffle any feathers. What could possibly go wrong? The Thanksgiving Play is rambunctious, thorny, and not altogether politically correct, and is sure to serve up the hypocrisies of woke America on a big, family-style, platter. Come get ya some.
