Central Hall Musical Society presents Carrie the Musical!

OUR project

We are aiming to raise around £1500 in order to put on our performance of Carrie the Musical at Friargate Theatre between 23rd-25th May 2024.

Carrie is a modern musical with a book by Lawrence D. Cohen, lyrics by Dean Pitchford, and music by Michael Gore. It is based on the 1974 Stephen King's horror novel of the same name and integrates elements from its 1976 Brian De Palma's film adaptation. 

The musical focuses on Carrie White, an awkward teenage girl with telekinetic powers, whose lonely life is dominated by her oppressive religious fanatic mother, Margaret. When she is humiliated by her classmates at the high school prom, she unleashes chaos on everyone and everything in her path out of vengeance.

Who are we?

Central Hall Musical Society (CHMS) is the University of York's leading musical theatre society! We are devoted to the production of various shows across campus and the city throughout the year, whilst also being entirely student-run.
