Character Breakdown

Carrie White Female, Painfully shy outsider who, in spite of her best efforts to belong, has been a victim of her classmates’ cruel jokes since childhood, as well as her mother’s strict, biblicallyordained control at home; transforms from ugly duckling into graceful, and then vengeful, swan; vocally, she must be capable of lyrical sweetness as well as fierce power.

Mezzo-Soprano.

 

Margaret White Female, Woman of visceral extremes; balances her fervent religious convictions with equally sincere true-believer spirituality and tender, maternal love for Carrie; in the end, she proves to be a religious extremist. Like Carrie, with whom she shares several duets, her voice must range from expressive and melodic to ferocious and frightening. Soprano.

 

SUE SNELL Female, A popular over achieving student. Her unthinking participation in a cruel act of bullying causes a crisis of conscience that leads her on a complicated emotional and psychological journey to make amends. Smart with just a touch of shrewd edge. The play is told through her memory. Vocally, she has a pop ballad voice that delivers sincerity and strength.

Mezzo-Soprano.

 

TOMMY ROSS: Male, Handsome, popular star athlete, and all around standout. Yet he also has unexpected, quirky sensitivity and is just starting to mine his personal life and feelings – a budding poet.

Pop Tenor.

 

CHRIS HARGENSEN Female, Rich, spoiled, and dangerous. Loaded with sexual dynamite, and serious daddy and anger management issues. Her voice is pop/rock percussive: rangy and powerful. Must be an equally strong dancer.

Mezzo-Soprano.

 

BILLY NOLAN Male, A dangerous, sexy, trashy, stupid-like-a-fox bad boy beholden to Chris’s bidding. His voice is that of a wailing rocker.

Baritone.

 

MISS GARDNER Female, The girls’ no nonsense P.E. teacher. A tough disciplinarian, Carrie also arouses within her a surprising instinct to protect.

Warm and powerful pop belt.

 

MR. STEPHENS / REV. BLISS Male, A still sexy English teacher and guidance counselor not quite connected to the world of his students. Doubles as Reverend Bliss, the voice of a radio evangelist. (Rev. Bliss may be spilt into another role)

 

NORMA Female, A gossip with an artistic hipster edge. Norma is second-in-command to Chris’ queen bee.

 

FRIEDA Female, Sue’s sometime friend. A drama dork, she’s an easy going, get-along follower and a tireless extracurricular committee volunteer.

 

HELEN Female, A leggy cheerleader. Giggly and easily shocked, her immaturity and need to belong make her the perfect example of the herd mentality.

 

GEORGE Male, A jock. Preppy. Somewhat unsure. Tommy’s wingman since childhood.

 

STOKES Male, A bit of a nerd, he’s happy to be sometimes included as one of Tommy’s posse.  

 

FREDDY Male, The wise-cracking class clown and official yearbook photographer, he can’t believe any girl would ever give him the time of day.
