Danny Torrance is a talented young writer and the most popular boy at Castle Rock High. But when he meets Carrie White, a mysterious redhead with a history of heartbreak and telekinesis, he learns that sometimes the most terrifying thing in Maine…is love.
Will everybody laugh at them? Will Danny succumb to the deadly charms of Dolores, his “Number One Fan?” Will he be murdered by his Dad? And how does that creepy clown over there feel about all this? One thing’s for sure…in some schools, dead is better!

Review from Broadwayworld.com:
“The most unique [presentation] thus far was the stunning and clever Stephen King’s High School Musical…the wit of the writing was on the same level as that of the Urinetown folks. Don’t be surprised if this duo is writing musical comedy for Broadway producers very soon. The show also featured some great performers including [Sarah Jane Marek] as Carrie with a song about telekinesis that had the audience nearly falling out of their seats with laughter, and Brianna Tyson who’s portrayal of Carrie’s
zombie mother was one of the highlights of the night. “
