A terrific ensemble of nine singers and dancers, wonderful music direction by Walter “Bobby” McCoy and choreography by Patrick Doneghy. “Carrie” is a horror story, regardless of whether it’s a musical. The show runs weekends through Nov. 7.Tickets available at the door or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
