Studio 609 is an intensive musical theatre performance offering for highschool students outside of the Young Actors Theatre Company Main Stage Season.

Carrie White is a teenage outcast who longs to fit in. At school, she’s bullied by the popular crowd, and virtually invisible to everyone else. At home, she’s dominated by her loving but cruelly controlling mother. What none of them know is that Carrie’s just discovered she’s got a special power, and if pushed too far, she’s not afraid to use it.

Set in the present in the small New England town of Chamberlain, Maine, Carrie: The Musical features a book by Lawrence D. Cohen (screenwriter of the classic film), music by Academy Award winner Michael Gore (Fame, Terms of Endearment), and lyrics by Academy Award winner Dean Pitchford (Fame, Footloose).

“A strong, effective and remarkably coherent piece of terrific total theatre.” – Clive Barnes, The New York Post

“Carrie has become a cultural touchstone in this country. It’s the great cautionary horror story of high school cruelty.” – Ben Brantley, The New York Times
