Men Needed for Carrie: The Musical


We find ourselves in need of 5 Young Men ages 16 – mid 20’s (to play HS age) and 1 Man to play 30’s-40’s to complete the cast for our production of CARRIE: THE MUSICAL, directed by Bradford Blake with music direction by Charles Smith.

The production will run September 30 – October 22 at the Sherman Playhouse, Sherman CT.  (Not sure where we are?  We’re Closer Than You Think.  Check this out)

The following roles are open and all ethnicities are welcome to audition.

TOMMY ROSS Male, to play 17-18 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. Effortless pop tenor.

BILLY NOLAN Male, 20s A dangerous, sexy, trashy, stupid-like-a-fox bad boy beholden to Chris’s bidding. His voice is that of a wailing rocker. Implied sexual content. Baritone.

GEORGE Male, to play 17-18 A jock. Preppy. Somewhat unsure. Tommy’s wingman since childhood.

STOKES Male, to play 17-18 A bit of a nerd, he’s happy to be sometimes included as one of Tommy’s posse.

FREDDY Male, to play 17-18 The wise-cracking class clown and official yearbook photographer, he can’t believe any girl would ever give him the time of day.

STEPHENS / REV. BLISS Male, to play 30’s – 40’s A still sexy English teacher and guidance counsellor not quite connected to the world of his students. Doubles as Reverend Bliss, the voice of a radio evangelist.


Carrie White is a teenage outcast who longs to fit in. At school, she’s bullied by the popular crowd, and virtually invisible to everyone else. At home, she’s dominated by her loving but cruelly controlling mother. What none of them know is that Carrie’s just discovered she’s got a special power, and if pushed too far, she’s not afraid to use it.

Set in the present in the small New England town of Chamberlain, Maine, CARRIE: THE MUSICAL features a book by Lawrence D. Cohen (screenwriter of the classic film), music by Academy Award winner Michael Gore (Fame, Terms of Endearment), and lyrics by Academy Award winner Dean Pitchford (Fame, Footloose).  It is, of course, based on the novel by Stephen King.

All actors must provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19 in order to audition.

The Sherman Playhouse is a non-Equity theatre company located at 5 Route 39 North (next to the firehouse) in Sherman, CT.
