Louis Ellis Productions’ CARRIE: The Musical will star Sydney Conservatorium student Kirralee Elliott in the titular role of Carrie, alongside Sydney theatre veteran Michele Lansdown, bringing the classic Stephen King novel to musical life at the Depot Theatre this July. Michele Lansdown plays the overbearing and misunderstood mother, Margaret White, set on protecting Carrie from the evils that exist in our world.
Carrie White is a mistfit. At school, she’s an outcast who’s bullied by the popular crowd, and virtually invisible to everyone else. At home, she’s at the mercy of her loving but cruelly over-protective mother. The story became an instant classic – driving home a message that stuck with many: when pushed to their limits, everyone has their breaking point.
