Carrie White is a misfit. At school, she's an outcast who's bullied by the popular crowd, and virtually invisible to everyone else. At home, she's at the mercy of her loving but cruelly over-protective
other. But Carrie's just discovered she's got a special power, and if pushed too far, she's not afraid
to use it…
CASTING: 6 Women (age 17-30), 2 Women (age 35-50),
5 Men (age 17-30), 1 Man (age 30-50)
CARRIE WHITE (Female, to play 17) – A painfully shy outsider with a strong desire to belong. Victim of frequent pranks and bullying at school as well as abuse under her mother’s strict religious control at home. She transforms from ugly duckling into graceful – and then vengeful – swan. Vocally, she must be capable of lyrical sweetness as well as fierce power. Requires a special actress with mesmerizing presence and extreme stamina as an actor and singer.
MARGARET WHITE (Female, 35-50) – A commanding, intense woman of visceral extremes, possessing zealous religious convictions, and almost abusive maternal love for her daughter. Like Carrie, with whom she shares several duets, her voice must range from expressive and melodic to ferocious and frightening. Requires an actress with mesmerizing presence and extreme stamina as an actor and singer.
SUE SNELL (Female, to play 17-18) – A popular over achieving student. Her unthinking participation in a cruel act of bullying causes a crisis of conscience that leads her on a complicated emotional and psychological journey to make amends. Smart with just a touch of shrewd edge. The play is told through her memory. Vocally, she has a pop ballad voice that delivers sincerity and strength.
TOMMY ROSS (Male, to play 17-18) – Handsome, popular star athlete, and all around standout. Yet he also has unexpected, quirky sensitivity and is just starting to mine his personal life and feelings – a budding poet. Effortless pop tenor.
CHRIS HARGENSEN (Female, to play 17-18) – Rich, spoiled, and dangerous. A knockout beauty loaded with sexual dynamite, and serious daddy and anger management issues. Her voice is pop/rock percussive: rangy and powerful. Must be an equally strong dancer. May require partial nudity.
BILLY NOLAN (Male, 20s) – A dangerous, sexy, trashy, stupid-like-a-fox bad boy beholden to Chris’s bidding. His voice is that of a wailing rocker. Strong dancer.
MISS GARDNER (Female, mid-30’s) – The girls’ no nonsense P.E. teacher. A tough disciplinarian, Carrie also arouses within her a surprising instinct to protect. Warm and powerful pop belt.
MR. STEPHENS / REV. BLISS (Male, 30’s - 40’s) – A English teacher and guidance counselor not quite connected to the world of his students. Doubles as Reverend Bliss, the voice of a radio evangelist. Strong, clear rock tenor/baritone.
NORMA (Female, to play 17-18) – A Bitchy gossip with an artistic hipster edge. Norma is second-in-command to Chris’ queen bee. A strong singer/dancer.
FRIEDA (Female, to play 17-18) – Sue’s sometime friend. A drama dork, she’s an easygoing, get-along follower and a tireless extracurricular committee volunteer.
HELEN (Female, to play 17-18) – A leggy cheerleader. Giggly and easily shocked, her immaturity and need to belong make her the perfect example of the herd mentality. A strong singer/dancer.
GEORGE (Male, to play 17-18) - A jock. Preppy. Somewhat unsure. Tommy’s wingman since childhood.
STOKES (Male, to play 17-18) – A bit of a nerd, he’s happy to be sometimes included as one of Tommy’s posse.
FREDDY (Male, to play 17-18) – The wise-cracking class clown and official yearbook photographer, he can’t believe any girl would ever give him the time of day.
