Carrie the Musical

Event Start Time: 2:30 PM

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.

Based on Stephen King’s best-selling novel, this killer musical was revamped in 2012 by Lawrence D. Cohen, screenwriter of the original feature film and Academy Award winners Michael Gore and Dean Pitchford.

Cavalleria Rusticana

Jan

Mascagni's masterpiece, Cavalleria Rusticana ("rustic chivalry") takes place on Easter morning as Turiddu sings of his love for Lola. Turiddu was once engaged to Lola and has returned from military service to find that she has married another. Heartbroken, Turiddu seduces Santuzza which inspires jealousy in Lola who begins an adulterous affair with Turiddu.

Naturally, Lola's husband cannot stand for such betrayal, and the Easter celebrations of the villagers are interrupted by arguments, violence and confusion.
