Carrie the Musical — Wax Lyrical Productions

Because all classic horror films need the musical treatment.

What's better than a horror film about a taunted teenager who unleashes her telekinetic powers upon her classmates? All that, but transported to the stage and set to music. Yes, another movie has been given the musical treatment — and it's not one you might expect. Say hello to the singing and dancing version of Carrie.

Even if you've read Stephen King's book, viewed the original 1976 feature directed by Brian De Palma or sat through the 2013 remake starring Chloë Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore, you haven't seen the iconic story told like this. In fact, when Carrie the Musical first debuted on Broadway back in 1988, audiences and critics didn't quite know what to make of it.

In the production's Brisbane debut, expect a tale of terror and revenge, a flurry of teen angst, and a prom to remember. Also expect to have a bloody good time, with emphasis on the buckets of red, oozing substance.
