Emily Milledge stars in the title role

Ghost Light, in association with Moving Light Productions, presents the Melbourne premiere of Carrie The Musical at Chapel Off Chapel beginning Sept. 25.

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

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

Here's how the production is 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 with lighting by Jason Bovaird, design by Jacob Battista and musical supervision by David Piper.
