    There is a musical of Stephen King’s 1974 teen horror novel Carrie. You might not have heard about it because it bombed at its first outing in 1988, which was produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company at Statford-upon-Avon in England. Crazy, right?

    It had precedent, inspired by the hit 1976 film directed by Brian DePalma and starring Sissy Spacek, as well as the Metropolitan Opera’s 1979 production of Alban Berg’s dark operaLulu.

    Carrie: The Musical, unfortunately, did not follow the precedent to success.

    But its creators wouldn’t let it die. They revised it, replacing songs that didn’t work, concentrating on the novel’s psychological foundation instead of the film’s spectacle, and staged it off Broadway in 2012. It worked. Partly because of its immersive production and, according to Arts Beat L.A., “Wonderful songs, each more likable than the last.”

    So why is it right for Western Stage?

    “The whole cast, except for three characters, are kids,” director Jon Selover says. “Being able to have [this] kind of opportunity for young people is central to what [Western Stage] is about.”

    He was looking for plays that address issues he thinks the community should confront: in this case, bullying and religious extremism. The story is an ingeniously simple one about teen girls, the volatility of their identity, and primal need to belong. “[Carrie] thinks she’s different from everyone else. But she finds out she’s just like everyone else,” Selover says. “She wants to go to the prom.”

    There, she finds out that, no, she’s not like everyone else.

    CARRIE: THE MUSICAL runs 7:30pm Fri-Sat and 2pm Sun (post-show discussions follow matinees July 17 and 31), July 16-Aug. 6, at Western Stage’s Mainstage Theater, 411 Central Ave., Salinas. $24-$26/general; $12/children (parental discretion is advised). 755-6816, www.WesternStage.com

    The musicalization of Stephen King's first published novel and its classic film version about a high school misfit who discovers the power to change her circumstances features two Gloucester County actresses in the leading roles. Presented by the Department of Theater & Dance at Rowan University, the production has five performances from April 6-12, in Tohill Theater on the university's Glassboro campus.

    The cast is led by Meagen Cutting of Deptford as Carrie White and Kristy Joe Slough of Wenonah as her mother, Margaret White.

    "Carrie: The Musical," directed by faculty member Christopher Marlowe Roche, features music by Michael Gore, lyrics by Dean Pitchford, and a book by Lawrence D. Cohen. The well-known story introduces teenage outcast Carrie White. She is bullied at school by the popular crowd and virtually invisible to everyone else. At home, she is at the mercy of her loving but fanatically over-protective mother. The discovery of her telekinetic abilities and the power she can unleash when pushed too far changes the dynamics of these relationships and brings about shocking consequences.

    "I'm fascinated by the allegorical view of the 'other' and bullying and what that can do to people," says Roche, who sets the story in contemporary times and whose vision also has been informed by concepts of religiosity and the anthropology of telekinesis. Additionally, the director and his team have worked to create an almost cinematic approach to the production that harkens back to the film's director, Brain De Palma.

    "There's also lots of trickery and blood packs," Roche adds.

    Cutting and Slough are joined by Kelly Appelmann Boonton as Helen; Charles Barney of Mount Laurel as Mr. Stephens; Nathan Benson of Plano, Texas as Stokes; Eibhleann Clyne of Rockaway as Miss Gardner; Vincent DiFilippo of Williamstown as Freddy; Kyle Jacobus of Williamsport, Md. as Tommy; Kerry Jules of Union as Rev. Bliss; AJ Klein of Upper Township as Billy; Emily Marie Lewis of Northfield as Norma; Angela Longo of Somerdale as Frieda; Anthony Magnotta of Runnemede as George; Darby Pumphrey of Mullica Hill as Sue Snell; Vanessa Vause of Williamstown as Chris; and Nicole Cusmano of Scotch Plains and Jacqueline Spence of Sewell as Police Officers.

    The ensemble includes Allison Abiva of Cherry Hill, Eduardo Delgado of Rockaway, Juliet Gallagher of Middletown, Abigail Gardner of West Deptford, Molly Jo Gifford and Mikyah Mott of Philadelphia, Robin Purtell of Point Pleasant Beach, Sara Rabatin of Blackwood, Kenwyn Samuel of Hammonton, Mackenzie Trush of Franklinville, Matthew Vesely of Williamstown, and Ryan Washington of Denville.

    Performances are April 6, 7 and 8 at 8 p.m., April 9 at 2 p.m., and April 12 at 7 p.m. Tohill Theater is located in Bunce Hall on the campus of Rowan University, Route 322 in Glassboro. Purchase tickets online at rowan.tix.com. For more information, call the box office at 856-256-4545, or email arts@rowan.edu. Tickets are $20 (general) and $15 (seniors/non-Rowan students/alumni/staff/military). Rowan students are admitted free with valid ID, based on availability.

    IT might be a thrilling literary classic, but Stephen King’s Carrie will have a new lease on life when it’s brought to the stage – albeit with a slight twist.

    Dark Psychic Productions has taken the horror story and transformed it into a stage musical which is about to kick off at Phoenix Theatre.

    Directed by Coolbellup’s Ryan McNally and starring Atwell resident Olivia Rose as Carrie White, the production is brimming with local talent ready to entertain the crowd.

    Rose said the misfit Carrie suffered bullying at school and abuse at home, but deep down she was just like other girls.

    “Carrie is really a very sensitive girl,” she said.

    “In my mind, all she really wants is to belong and be part of normal high school life but due to her upbringing and the morals and habits instilled in her, it’s really difficult.

    “The most significant thing with the role is the energy that has to go into it because there is obviously a lot of intensity in Carrie and, as a person trying to channel that, it can be almost exhausting.”

    McNally said while there were a few changes between the book, the films and the stage, this show was closer to the book than the movies.

    Carrie is at the Phoenix Theatre in Hamilton Hill from October 6 to 21.

    Tickets start from $22 from www.darkpsychicproductions.com.
