CARRIE The Musical - Towle Theater

CARRIE the musical is presented through special arrangement with R&H Theatricals.

This Towle Youth Theater Ensemble (TYTE) keeps getting better every play and musical. This musical tops them all, however:

Spoiler Alert!

There is a lot going on in this great production, directed by Jeff Casey with set and costume design by Kevin Bellamy. The show has impact, and these photographs will give key elements away. So please go see the production first!

So why are children so mean at times? Do they learn it from their parents and other adults who want to find their pecking order in society, playing king of the hill perhaps? Yet there are those who just want to be nice to others. To help protect others and to show they fit in. Carrie (1976) is a classic supernatural horror film. Telekinetics? Yes, this production has it. Do they pull the rope do dump pigs blood? Sort of, and I have to say this was the epic part of this musical, just like in the movie.

Of course none of this would be so spectacular if it were not for the Towle Youth Theater Ensemble. This cast of 16 youth are brilliantly choreographed and vocal directed. They keep us on our toes as they use the full stage to perform. They take our breath away with voice.

So again, Spoiler Alert! Please go see this production before you look at the photographs. I can guarantee the impact from this youth production will be lost if you look at the photos first.

The superb youth cast . . .
