‘Carrie The Musical’ Takes Center Stage at the
UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television

Three-time Ovation Award winner Nick DeGruccio directs and four-time Ovation Award winner Lee Martino choreographs students from UCLA TFT’s Department of Theater

The UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television (UCLA TFT) announced today the production of Carrie the Musical, directed by three-time Ovation Award-winning director Nick DeGruccio, with choreography by four-time Ovation Award winner Lee Martino. The musical is set to open Friday, June 2, 2017 at UCLA TFT’s Little Theater, featuring acting students from the UCLA TFT Department of Theater’s Ray Bolger Musical Theater Program, and caps off a highly successful 2016-17 Theater Season at UCLA TFT.

Carrie the Musical tells the story of a lonely teenage girl whose life is dominated by her oppressive mother. Matters get worse when classmates humiliate Carrie at her high school prom: That’s when she unleashes her telekinetic powers to exact revenge on everyone. Based on the best-selling Stephen King novel Carrie, Carrie the Musical premiered on Broadway in 1988 and later enjoyed a 2012 Off-Broadway revival as well as two productions in 2015, in London and Los Angeles.

Performances of Carrie the Musical will take place June 2-3 and 6-10, 2017 at 8 p.m. There will also be a 2 p.m. matinee performance on Saturday, June 10.
