CHARACTER BREAKDOWN:

Carrie White
Female Identified Lead • Mezzo-Soprano/Belter • To Play 17
A shy outcast who is often bullied by her classmates and constantly scolded by her mother, an abusive, mentally unstable religious fanatic. At the late age of 17, she has her first menstrual period in the showers at school, and is harassed by the other girls. Carrie triggers her telekinetic powers, and sets in motion the disaster that takes place at the high school prom. Vocally, she must be capable of lyrical sweetness as well as fierce power.

Margaret White
Female Identified Lead • Soprano with Strong Belt • To Play 40s - Early 50s
Carrie's mother, a religious zealot. Although she loves Carrie and wants to protect her from the world, her fanaticism often drives her to abuse her daughter. She thinks almost everything, especially things to do with the female body and sex, is sinful. Like Carrie, with whom she shares several duets, her voice must range from expressive and melodic to ferocious and frightening.

Sue Snell
Female Identified Supporting • Mezzo-Soprano/Belter • To Play 17-18
A straight-A student who’s been popular her entire life, she’s remarkably level headed for her age. Her unthinking participation in a cruel act of bullying causes a crisis of conscience that leads her on a journey to try to right things. Vocally, she has a pop ballad voice that delivers sweet sincerity and strength.

Chris Hargensen
Female Identified Supporting • Mezzo-Soprano/Belter • To Play 17-18
Rich, spoiled-rotten, and wickedly funny, Chris is a popular beauty whose arrogant self-assurance makes her believe that the rules don’t apply to her. Loaded with sexual dynamite, she has serious daddy and anger management issues. Her voice is pop-rock percussive and powerful.

Miss Gardner
Female Identified Supporting • Mezzo-Soprano/Belter • To Play 30s - 40s
The girls’ P.E. teacher, she can be a strict disciplinarian if necessary; however, when Carrie arouses her maternal instinct, she surprises herself by also revealing a protective “fairy godmother” side. Her voice is warm and strong, just like the woman.

Tommy Ross
Male Identified Supporting • Tenor • To Play 17-18
Popular star athlete, valedictorian, and all around stand-out student. He’s the boy that all the girls want to be with, and all the boys want to be. Yet, he also has unexpected and quirky sensitivity, and is just starting to mine his personal life and feelings – a budding poet. His voice should have an effortless pop quality.

Billy Nolan
Male Identified Supporting • Rock Tenor • To Play 19-20
Now in his sixth year in high school, Billy’s a sexy, stupid-like-a-fox bad boy whose wise mouth troublemaking has led him to spend more time in detention than in class. All these qualities make it easy for his girlfriend Chris to manipulate him to do her bidding. His voice is that of a wailing rocker.

Mr. Stephens
Male Identified Featured • Baritone • To Play 30s - 40s
This well-intentioned English teacher and guidance counselor struggles to help his students realize their potential. A dedicated educator, he’s stretched thin in his duties, woefully underpaid, and a bit overwhelmed as to how to handle the “Billy Nolans” of the classroom combat zone.

Freida
Female Identified Ensemble • Soprano/Belter • To Play 17-18
Sue’s brainy pal, she’s an easy-going, get-along follower and a tireless extracurricular committee volunteer.

Norma
Female Identified Ensemble • Mezzo-Soprano/Belter • To Play 17-18
Bitchy, gossipy, and a shameless suck-up to authority, Norma is second-in-command to Chris’ queen bee.

Helen
Female Identified Ensemble • Soprano/Belter • To Play 17-18
Giggly and easily shocked, her immaturity and need to belong make her the perfect example of the herd mentality.

George
Male Identified Ensemble • Tenor • To Play 17-18
Tommy’s jock wingman since childhood, George idolizes him. Perhaps a little too much…

Stokes
Male Identified Ensemble • Tenor • To Play 17-18
A bit of a nerd, he’s happy to be included as one of Tommy’s posse.

Freddy
Male Identified Ensemble • Tenor • To Play 17-18
The wise-cracking class clown and official yearbook photographer, he can’t believe any girl would ever give him the time of day.
