High School Lets Students Stage “Carrie”
The principal says it’s a lesson in bullying. How would you feel about your kids performing or watching that horrific story in school?
A suburban Michigan school is standing by its decision to stage a musical version of “Carrie”, based on the Stephen King horror story.
Many parents have complained that it’s an inappropriate choice for a spring musical for the high school (in Farmington Hills).
One parent calls it ‘arrogant’ and ‘insensitive’ to put on a show that ends with a mass murder in a high school.
But the principal says the musical is a way of looking at the impact of bullying and mental illness.
