SHERMAN, CONN. (August 30, 2022) The Sherman Players will present their third production of the 2022 season, CARRIE THE MUSICAL, based on the novel by Stephen King, written by Lawrence D. Cohen with lyrics by Dean Pitchford and music by Michael Gore. CARRIE will be directed by Bradford Blake, with music direction by Charles Smith. The production will run September 30 – October 22 at the Sherman Playhouse.
Carrie White is a teenage outcast who longs to fit in. At school, she’s bullied by the popular crowd, and virtually invisible to everyone else. At home, she’s dominated by her loving but cruelly controlling mother. What none of them know is that Carrie’s just discovered she’s got a special power, and if pushed too far, she’s not afraid to use it.
The cast of CARRIE: THE MUSICAL features Sam Everett (Danbury), Calista Giroux (Newtown), Karl Hinger (Brookfield), Audra James (Hopewell Junction, NY), Angie Joachim (Ridgefield), Collin Larson (New Milford), Tracey Marble (Trumbull), Benjamin McKiernan (New Fairfield), Kevin McNulty (New Milford), Kennedy Morris (Morris), Ainsley Novin (Oxford), Victor Roldan (Bethel), Erin Shaughnessy (New Milford) and Daisy Stott (Brookfield).
