Continuing its mission to bring Nashville cutting edge theatre, as well as performance opportunities for young people, Street Theatre Company presents Carrie: The Musical from October 3-12.

Based on Stephen King’s 1974 horror novel, Carrie tells the story of a shy teenage girl living in a world of bullies. After a practical joke goes too far, Carrie then uses her telekinetic powers to bring about her revenge. With a brilliant book by Lawrence D. Cohen, haunting lyrics by Dean Pitchford, and beautifully complex music by Michael Gore, this revamped version of the 1988 Broadway musical is the perfect outing right before Halloween.

Carrie is directed by Street Theatre’s artistic director, Cathy Street, with music directed by Randy Craft, and choreographed by DeVon Buchanan. 9:21 AMhe play introduces Belmont student Alie B. Gorrie as Carrie, along with Chris Lee as Tommy, Jessica Theiss as Sue, Marnie Price as Chris, and Kyle O’Connor as Billy. Tickets range from $18-24, and can be purchased at .

Carrie will be Street Theatre Company’s final main stage performance of the season, and, more importantly, its final main stage performance in its current Elm Hill Pike location. For the past four years, Street has made the warehouse its home, and now it seeks a new location before announcing its 2015 season. Street Theatre Company has been voted Nashville’s number one regional theatre (The Nashville Scene), and in this vein the company seeks Nashville’s support and patience as they continue their search for a new home. If you have any information as far as possible locations for the theatre, or if you would like to make a donation to help fund Street Theatre’s search efforts, contact Cathy Street at <info@streettheatrecompany.org>.

Street Theatre Company is a non-profit arts organization dedicated to fostering professional, affordable and accessible theatre, music and arts education in Nashville. Founded in 2004, the organization produces high quality performances and educational workshops, and provides artistic opportunities for young people.
