I could pick nits (the chorus is a little loose and the girl playing Chris Hargensen couldn't sing in tune) but overall, Ray of Light has done an amazing job here. Staging is almost Broadway-level and the two leads have GREAT voices. When Carrie...continued

We went expecting a truly camp experience, but came away with a very satisfying "realistic" musical drama. The cast is uniformly terrific, the sets, costumes, etc very professional.
My one qualm is that the mother's characterization is that of a...continued

Very very well done. Couldn't believe that Carrie was played by a high school junior. She was fantastic along with the rest of the cast. They each gave it their all and I wish them the best of luck with the rest of their performances. I loved...continued

Not that great of a show, I found myself fighting off sleep throughout many different places in this too long show. I would then be startled and awakened by some beautiful powerhouse voices from a few of the lead characters including Carrie,...continued

This show got a standing ovation for its preview. This was very well cast. The lead (Carrie) and her mom have excellent voices as did the young woman who played Sue and the woman who played the PE teacher. High quality production with some good...continued

This very challenging show was performed with a talented czsgt and excellent direction. I was very impressed by the ensemble, not only vocally but staging. This local group were mostly impressive with professionalism. A fast paced performance...continued

This was my second viewing, and I found it even more moving the second time. The singing of Martha and Carrie White was again the highlight for this viewer. And with this simple but effective staging it is a amazing that the 8 million dollar...continued

A former B'Way flop becomes a current hit! That's the story of "Carrie the Musical." The cast is quite strong for a community, non-Equity theatre. The namesake lead is particularly amazing with her clear voice and her convincing acting. The...continued

See this show for the spectacular lead singer Cristina Ann Oeschger as Carrie. I got chills everytime she sang. The other female vocalists were great making the male vocalist seem less talented, although Nikita Burshteyn as Tommy was very good. ...continued

I would say that this is one of the best local productions I have seen! It really did not even feel like a local production and I could not believe that Carrie White was performed by a high school Junior. If you are waivering get a ticket and...continued

A surprisingly good performance of a rarely-done musical. Ray of Light just keeps getting better and better. The moment I saw the set I knew I was in for a good evening of theatre. The two leads were incredible, especially the actress playing...continued

My daughter really wanted to see this show when we were visiting San Francisco. I was really impressed! Especially since we ended up watching the 11:30 pm show. The singing was gorgeous. Great choreography. Great chemistry with everyone. I'd...continued

Performers were exceptional! If you appreciate talent - go! The score was not the most engaging - not bad, just nothing memorable. However, the actors more than made up for the shortcomings of the musical.

That theatre was filled with so much talent. The seats were great and unexpected in such an intimate venue. This was the first musical my two oldest attended and they were mesmerized by the musical. We had a wonderful night out and...continued

Carrie could have easily gone the route of Little Shop or Sweeney Todd, turning the gruesome into a chance for morbid gags. Instead, it taps into the emotional core of the story from multiple perspectives of the main character, her mom, fellow...continued
