Knight Theatre, St. Norbert College’s student-run theatre group, will present “Carrie the Musical,” by special arrangement with Concord Theatricals Co., Jan. 27-30.

Performances will be held at the Webb Theatre in the Abbot Pennings Hall of Fine Arts on the St. Norbert College campus.

Carrie White, a teenage outcast who longs to fit in, is virtually invisible to everyone around her - except the bullies at her school, of course. At home, she’s dominated by her cruelly controlling, yet sometimes loving mother. What nobody knows is that Carrie has just discovered a special power within herself, 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 the book by Lawrence D. Cohen (screenwriter of the classic film), music by Academy Award-winner Michael Gore (“Fame,” “Terms of Endearment”), lyrics by Academy Award-winner Dean Pitchford (“Fame,” “Footloose”) and based on the novel by Stephen King. Tickets for the event can be purchased at the St. Norbert College box office by calling 920-403-3950 or online at Reserved seats for the public are $15. St. Norbert College Knight Theatre is a student organization dedicated to staging a musical theatre production each year, with a monthlong rehearsal schedule that culminates in several public performances.
