Peregrine Theatre Ensemble will be performing its entire 2015 season in the old high school auditorium at Provincetown Schools, 12 Winslow Street in Provincetown MA. This allows Peregrine to transform the space into Carrie’s high school in Chamberlain, Maine. During this interactive theatrical experience they invite the audience to attend prom and fully commit to the world of CARRIE the musical for a night they will never forget.
Carrie White is a misfit. At school, she's an outcast who's bullied by the popular crowd, and virtually invisible to everyone else. At home, she's at the mercy of her loving but cruelly over-protective mother. But 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 bestselling novel, the musical of Carrie hasn't been seen since its legendary 1988 Broadway production. Now, the show's original authors have joined with director Stafford Arima (Altar Boyz) and MCC Theater for a newly reworked and fully re-imagined vision of this gripping tale. Set today, in the small town of Chamberlain, Maine, Carrie 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).
AN EVENING OF TWO RARE & QUEER ONE ACTS BY
"AND TELL SAD STORIES OF THE DEATHS OF QUEENS..." & "THE PARADE, OR APPROACHING THE END OF A SUMMER"
Directed by Jef Hall-Flavin, Executive Director of the Provincetown Tennessee Williams Theater Festival
Thursdays & Fridays
August 6th - September 18th at 7pm.
"The Parade..." will also be presented during the 2015 Tennessee Williams Festival
Undeniably the most outwardly gay-themed plays that Tennessee Williams ever wrote. These two beautifully sculpted one-act plays are full of tragic intimacy and comedic truth that only Williams can offer. Both And Tell Sad Stories... (an account of a fading New Orleans drag queen) and The Parade (a completely autobiographical story of unrequited love in Provincetown) make for a revealing, introspective and fresh look at classical Tennessee Williams.
