This Halloween season, add a splash of humor to your fright! Psychological horror meets outrageous camp in Carrie, Erik Jackson’s black comedy adaptation of Stephen King’s legendary 1974 novel. Fresh from last year’s critically acclaimed world premiere event, Haunted Poe (Best Production of a Play, Philadelphia Weekly), Brat Productions will stage the first new production of Carrie since its sold-out off-Broadway run.

Carrie tells the story of the iconic outcast – and telekinetic – teen, played by Erik Ransom (off-Broadway’s My Big Gay Italian Wedding), who gets humiliated for the last time at the senior prom. This electrifying, comic horror event brings the audience closer to the action than ever before. Objects float, lights pop, sparks fly, fire erupts, and a car flips and burns in a special effects extravaganza.

Directed by Michael Alltop with a team of design and magic experts, Carrie features all of the thrills and horror of the original bestselling novel with surprising and hilarious new twists.

Save the date for a prom night you’ll never forget!
