Carrie to be revived at the Southwark Playhouse in May

Carrie will receive its London premiere at the Southwark Playhouse on 6th May (previews from 1st May) for a limited run until 30th May 2015.

Thriller Live's Gary Lloyd will direct a revised version of the musical which is based on Stephen King's bestselling novel.

Produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company, Carrie first premiered in Stratford-upon-Avon in 1988 before transferring to Broadway starring Linzi Hateley.

Producer Paul Taylor-Mills told the Daily Mail's Baz Bamigboye that open auditions will be held for the title role. Carrie has music by Michael Gore, lyrics by Dean Pitchford and book by Lawrence D. Cohen.

A taunted and terrified seventeen-year-old misfit, Carrie White has a burning secret... a secret that will eventually ignite her revenge. Make your date for the Senior Prom to see who will be crowned Queen, and who will have blood on their hands. After one night with Carrie you will always remember her name.
