"Carrie: The Musical" is an honors thesis production directed by Erin Hamilton.
The show explores the American high school experience which includes themes such as bullying and the pressures high school students face to fit in. Set in the small town of Chamberlain, Maine, Carrie White longs for acceptance from her peers and mercy from her harsh overprotective mother. With the help of a kind classmate, a popular jock and a nurturing teacher, it seems Carrie may finally have a chance to be embraced by her community -- but a cruel bully has other ideas.
