SUBMITTED PHOTO - Malia Tippets plays Carrie White, a young woman with special powers, in the Stumptown Stages production of Carrie the Musical, opening today.Stephen King’s novel “Carrie” and the 1976 movie have resonated with readers and viewers for years, and now audiences can experience those feelings anew in Stumptown Stage’s production of “Carrie the Musical,” opening Oct. 22 and playing through Nov. 8 at Portland’5 Brunish Theatre.


“Carrie the Musical’ follows the story of a young girl who has been ostracized by her peers for being different, while seeking understanding and acceptance, only to have the last remnants of hope stripped away from her,” said Kirk Mouser, the executive artistic director of Stumptown Stages and the director of the musical.

He added that he chose this musical to begin Stumptown’s season because of its recent Off-Broadway success, and because the new adaptation of the story hits the mark on numerous levels.

“Not only is the story gripping and haunting, the original musical score is innovative and memorable,” he said.

“My favorite moments are the simple ones that allow us to reflect on the societal misgivings of bullying, reflected so beautifully in our central character.”

He added that he doesn’t want to give too much away about the staging, but blood plays a major role in the production.
