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

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

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

With much respect for ROLT shows, I saw the preview of CARRIE expecting to see a great show. Instead, I was truly blown away by the incredible talent, staging and overall vision for the show. It was phenomenal, and I knew by intermission that...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

I'm rather familiar with the show, Carrie, the musical and really enjoyed this production. The song, When There is No One is actually one of my favorite show tunes and HEather Orth did a fantasic job with it!! As disjointed as the script to this...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.

For some reason, my partner and I thought that this was going to be a campy take on "Carrie" rather than the straight presentation of it. The singing was great but we were somehow expecting a certain "something more" that was missing. This...continued

Great production, great performance. Heather Orth and Christina Ann Oeschger are fantastic! The acustics suck, not sure if it was the venue or the sound design, but we had problems hearing a lot of the lyrics.

I had never read the book nor seen the movie with Sissy Spacek, so I came into this production relatively naive. I thoroughly enjoyed the performance.

moved by score and voices, esp actress who played mother
sound mostly too loud, staging cluttered & unimaginative
ugly set, needed more use of dramatic lighting
