This October, Oakland University's Music Theatre and Dance students will set the stage for a chilling 2013-14 theatre season debut with a production of the cult classic, Carrie the Musical.
The show will run for 12 performances between Thursday, Oct. 10, and Sunday, Oct. 20, in Varner Studio Theatre.
Based on the book by Stephen King, the musical is written by Lawrence Cohen, Michael Gore and Dean Pitchford. The story centers on Carrie White, a misfit at school who is terrorized by her holier-than-thou mother at home. When a prank at the prom goes horribly wrong, Carrie's classmates learn of a terrifying secret she possesses.
The production will offer a special late-night showing on Saturday, Oct. 19, and performances on Friday, Oct. 11, and Sunday, Oct. 13, will be shadow-signed by TerpTheatre. Tickets are $18 for the general public, and $10 for students, children and all visitors to 10 a.m. matinees.
