Ghost Light, in association with Moving Light Productions, will present the Melbourne, Australia premiere of Carrie The Musical at Chapel Off Chapel to start performances Sept. 25.



The production will run through Oct. 12 and use the revised book, score and lyrics from the 2012 Off Broadway production. Lawrence D. Cohen wrote the book, Michael Gore and Dean Pitchford the music and lyrics.

Chelsea Gibb will play Margaret White and Emily Milledge as Carrie White. They lead a company of Melbourne's young music theatre performers.

Here's how the production's billed: "Based on the cult Stephen King novel, which has been adapted for the big screen twice, Carrie The Musical made its Broadway Debut in 1988, starring Broadway legend, Betty Buckley and was recently revived Off Broadway in a sell-out season, with Marin Mazzie in the leading role of Carrie’s highly religious mother, Margaret. Carrie White, the troubled teenager with telekinetic powers is a touchstone character in pop culture. First emerging in Stephen King's sensational debut novel, followed by Brian De Palma's iconic 1970's movie, she now returns."

Choreography is by Lisa Minett, lighting by Jason Bovaird, design by Jacob Battista and musical supervision is by David Piper.
