Casting for the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts immersive theater production of Carrie The Musical has been announced. The show is a coproduction between La Mirada, Jack W. Batman, Bruce Robert Harris, and the Transfer Group. It will begin performances on March 12.

Directed by Brady Schwind, and with choreography by Imara Quiñónez, the cast will include Emily Lopez as Carrie White, Misty Cotton as Margaret White, Kayla Parker as Sue Snell, Jon Robert Hall as Tommy Ross, Valerie Rose Curiel as Chris Hargensen, Jenelle Lynn Randall as Miss Gardner, Garrett Marshall as Billy Nolan, Bryan Dobson as Mr. Stephens and Reverend Bliss, Michael Starr as George Dawson, Adante Carter as Dale "Stokes" Ullman, Ian Littleworth as Freddy "The Beak" Holt, Kimberly Ann Steele as Helen Shyres, Rachel Farr as Norma Watson, and Teya Patt as Frieda Jason.

Carrie features a score by Michael Gore and Dean Pitchford and a book by Lawrence D. Cohen. Adapted from the 1974 horror novel by Stephen King, Carrie tells the story of 17-year-old Carrie White, who is terrorized by her high school classmates and her fanatically religious mother. After becoming the victim of a prom night prank, Carrie uses her newly discovered telekinetic powers to wreak havoc on those who have done her wrong. The musical premiered on Broadway in 1988, playing only five post-opening performances, followed by a 2012 off-Broadway revival at the Lucille Lortel Theatre. The show has gone on to receive numerous regional productions.
