10 roles

CARRIE WHITEFemale16-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Lead. Vocal Type: Mezzo-soprano A painfully shy outsider who, in spite of her best efforts to belong, has been the victim of her classmates' cruel jokes since childhood, as well as her mother's strict, biblically-oriented control at home. She transforms from an ugly duckling into a graceful – and then vengeful – swan. Vocally, she must be capable of lyrical sweetness as well as fierce power.

SUE SNELLFemale16-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Supporting. Vocal Type: Mezzo-soprano. A straight-A student who's been popular her entire life, she's remarkably level-headed for her age. She is the sole survivor of the “Destruction” and narrates the story. Her unthinking participation in a cruel act of bullying causes a crisis of conscience that leads her on a journey to try to right things. Vocally, she has a pop ballad voice that delivers sweet sincerity and strength.

TOMMY ROSSMale16-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Supporting. Vocal Type: Tenor. Popular star athlete, valedictorian, and all-around stand-out, he's the boy that all the girls want to be with, and all the boys want to be. Yet he also has unexpected, quirky sensitivity and is just starting to mine his personal life and feelings – a budding poet. At first Tommy takes no interest in Carrie but takes her to the prom after his girlfriend, Sue, asks him to. His voice should have an effortless pop quality.

CHRIS HARGENSENFemale16-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Supporting. Vocal Type: Mezzo-soprano The most brutal antagonist of the show. Chris hates Carrie, bullying her at every opportunity. She leads the other girls in throwing tampons at Carrie after she has her first period, and feels no remorse after the fact. After Chris is banned from the prom as punishment for bullying Carrie, she vows revenge along with her boyfriend, Billy. Her voice is pop-rock percussive and powerful.

FRIEDAFemale14-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Sue's brainy pal, she's an easy-going, get-along follower and a tireless extracurricular committee volunteer.

NORMAFemale14-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Bitchy, gossipy and a shameless suck-up to authority, Norma is second-in-command to Chris' queen bee.

HELENFemale14-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Giggly and easily shocked, her immaturity and need to belong make her the perfect example of the herd mentality.

GEORGEMale14-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Tommy's jock wingman since childhood, George idolizes him. Perhaps a little too much...

STOKESMale14-18 y.o.All ethnicities

A bit of a nerd, he's happy to be included as one of Tommy's posse.

FREDDYMale14-18 y.o.All ethnicities

The wise-cracking class clown and official yearbook photographer, he can't believe any girl would ever give him the time of day.
