True to our mission to strengthen, enrich, and shape the communities of St. Louis, through this production GCPA is tackling one of the toughest topics our young people face, often on a daily basis: bullying. We hope our work on this powerful piece will encourage many needed conversations and inspire positive change. Carrie White is an outcast, at school viciously bullied by the popular crowd and at home manipulated by a loving but cruelly over-protective mother. When she discovers she has growing telekinetic powers, the tension rises between her oppressors and the few sympathetic advocates she finds in her gym teacher Miss Gardener and classmate Sue Snell. Sue convinces her boyfriend Tommy Ross to give Carrie one special night by taking her to the senior prom, but vengeful ringleader Chris Hargensen has other plans to make the night "special," climaxing in the ultimate display of Carrie's pain and power. Based on Stephen King's bestselling novel, Carrie The Musical features a driving rock ballad score including moving numbers like In, Dreamer In Disguise, and the chilling Destruction. Join us as we dig into the darker parts of ourselves and ask the hard question, "What does it cost to be kind?" Rated PG-13 for adult language, adult situations, and violence.
