Based on Lawrence D. Cohen's on-screen adaptation of Stephen King's novel, Carrie The Musical features lyrics by Dean Pitchford and music by Michael Gore. Carrie The Musical was first produced in 1988 by the Royal Shakespeare Company before ultimately making its way to Broadway. It was then revived in 2012 by New York's MCC Theater. Major productions have recently been seen at the Southwark Playhouse in London and the Los Angeles Theatre in Los Angeles, California. In addition to Cheryl Blossom's role as Carrie, the Riverdale High production includes Archie Andrews as Tommy Ross, Betty Cooper as Sue Snell, Veronica Lodge as Chris Hargensen, Chuck Clayton as Billy Nolan, Alice Cooper as Margaret White, Josie McCoy as Miss Gardner, Toni Topaz as Norma and Ethel Muggs as Helen. The show is directed by Kevin Keller.
