BGSU Firelands College Theatre is holding open auditions for the new musical “Carrie” September 17 and 18, 2015, in the McBride Auditorium on campus. All roles open.

Note: You only need attend one audition date.
Based on the classic novel by horror master Stephen King, CARRIE: THE MUSICAL has gone unproduced since its notorious 1988 Broadway production. Now, fully revised and re-imagined for a new era, CARRIE hews close to its source material to weave the tale of a bullied and abused teenager who discovers within her the power to strike back.
Carrie White is a friendless misfit. Emotionally abused at home by an overprotective and religiously zealous mother, and mercilessly mocked and taunted at her high school, Carrie has nowhere to turn except within herself; and within her lies a powder keg of preternatural power waiting to be unleashed.
CARRIE is a musical powerhouse, alternating between kinetic, pop/rock infused turns and soaring grand opera-esque arias by the composing team behind FAME (Michael Gore & Dean Pitchford); and the book, by the screenwriter of the 1976 Brian De Palma film (Lawrence D. Cohen), is an of-the-minute account of extreme religiosity and teenage bullying.
All those auditioning under age 17 must have signed parental permission to participate, as the show has mature language and themes (consent forms available at auditions).
