(TOMS RIVER, NJ) — Exit 82 Theater Company presents four representations of Carrie, the Musical This weekend. Based on the Stephen King novel, the musical features music by Michael Gore, lyrics by Dean Pitchford, and book by Lawrence D. Cohen.

Carrie White is a teenage outcast yearning to fit in. At school, she is bullied by the popular mob and virtually invisible to everyone. At home, she is dominated by her loving but cruelly controlling mother. What neither of them know is that Carrie has just discovered that she has a special power, and if pushed too far, she’s not afraid to use it.

PLEASE NOTE: Mature themes are explored in this production. CARRIE: The musical is not recommended for patrons under the age of 13. Strobe and pyrotechnic effects will be used in this production. Viewer discussion is encouraged.

The performances take place on Friday August 12 at 8:00 p.m.; Saturday August 13 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.; and Sunday, August 14 at 2:00 p.m. The tickets are available for purchase on line. This production is produced in part with CAPAA “Young Adult Student Production” of the Exit 82 theater.
