BE WITH YOU SHORTLY …
various authors, directed by Dan Seaman and Theatre Education majors
Dan Seaman, the most decorated secondary school theatre teacher in the history of North Carolina (The state theatre organization even has an award named after him!), creates the type of theatre that he’s nationally known for — selecting and shaping an ensemble of players who then adapt written material to create theatrical brilliance. This production will be geared for multiple ages and will suit the selection of the pieces to the audience the troupe would be facing — for the college on Sept. 28-29 and then for elementary-age children on tour Sept. 30-Oct. 1. and at other times during the year. IF YOU HAVE A SCHOOL THAT MIGHT BE INTERESTED in hosting a production (free of charge), contact Dan at firstname.lastname@example.org.

CARRIE, THE MUSICAL
Music by Michael Gore, lyrics by Dean Pitchford, book by Lawrence D. Cohen, based on the novel by Stephen King, directed by Perry Morgan.
Carrie White is a misfit. At school, she’s an outcast who’s bullied by the popular crowd and virtually invisible to everyone else. At home, she’s at the mercy of her loving but cruelly over-protective mother. But Carrie’s just discovered she’s got a special power, and if pushed too far, she’s not afraid to use it…Based on Stephen King’s bestselling novel, the musical version of “Carrie” hasn’t been seen since its legendary 1988 Broadway production. Then, in 2012, the show’s original authors joined with New York City’s MCC Theater for a newly reworked and fully re-imagined vision of this gripping tale. Set today, in the small town of Chamberlain, Maine, “Carrie” features a book by Lawrence D. Cohen (screenwriter of the classic film version directed by Brian DePalma), music by Academy Award winner Michael Gore (“Fame,” “Terms of Endearment”), and lyrics by Academy Award winner Dean Pitchford (“Fame,” “Footloose.”).
The Greensboro College Theatre Department production of “Carrie, the Musical” is slated to be both the Southeastern United States and the North Carolina premier of this musical and the first performance produced by our new Musical Theatre emphasis.
