Carrie the Musical at Rollins

Carrie the Musical was presented by Actors Reaching Out at the Fred Stone Theater, Rollins College 1000 Holt Ave Winter Park Florida. The show was by Michael Gore, with lyrics by Dean Pitchford. Book is by Laurence D. Cohen. It was based  on the novel by Stephen King and directed by Eric Scherer.

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 mother. But Carrie’s just discovered she has a special power, and if pushed too far, she’s not afraid to use it…

Of course I was mostly waiting for the bloody conclusion of the prom. The song anticipating the prom was fun to watch. Looking back, I realize that some of these talents have appeared again and again in my sketches of the theater scene in town. It is fun to see where some of these talents come from.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
