McDaniel College presents the musical thriller “Carrie,” based on Stephen King’s best-selling novel, under the direction of Josh Selzer, arts manager at McDaniel. The musical features a book by Lawrence D. Cohen with lyrics by Academy Award winner Dean Pitchford (“Fame,” “Footloose”) and music by Academy Award winner Michael Gore (“Fame,” “Terms of Endearment”).
It focuses on misfit Carrie White, an outcast at school who is bullied by the popular crowd and virtually invisible to everyone else. At home, she is at the mercy of her loving but cruelly overprotective mother, who will be played by Elizabeth van den Berg, chair of McDaniel’s theatre arts department. Carrie discovers that she has a special power, and if pushed too far, she’s not afraid to use it.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for seniors (over 60), active military members and veterans, students, as well as those with a McDaniel College ID. Note: The show contains adult material, including mature language and violence.
