Carrie the Musical - Script & Score

With the continuously changing words and music during the brief run of the play, numerous versions of the script and score were penned and distributed to the cast and crew. As the years passed and the fanbase grew, numerous versions of each have been leaked into fandom.



Most recently, a script that was once owned by ensemble player Scott Wise has begun popping up on eBay. This "Work Draft" version is undated (looks like the date has been lopped off of the copies) but it's from the original Stratford staging. It includes lots of dialog that was subsequently trimmed, as well as early variations of several songs and "White Star," Sue's version of "Heaven," which was later replaced with "It Hurts to Be Strong." Strangely, "The Destruction" scene is not present in this version. Extra special thank you to Rich (who went above and beyond the call of duty) for making it available here.



For quite some time, the piano score for Carrie has been shooting through cyberspace. I, of course, can't take any credit (or blame, depending on how you look at it) for creating the pdf files -- major thank you to Rycharde for sending them to me. Here are two of them for your entertainment... huge portions of the London score are handwritten. Scalpers would like to charge you big bucks for these on eBay (I know because I was nearly suckered). You'll need Adobe Reader to view these files.

Thank you so much for this. I wish I could find one that had "Tommy's Poem (An Eagle's Just Another Bird)". I love that song. It is... me.

Hi, I tried to get it but it said that the file had been deleted?

Vinnie said...

The link should be active now.

Justin said...

This is crazy, I have been looking for this FOR YEARS! Thank you so much.

I remember spending about 6 months several years ago just to find the audio recordings!

Anyone have the broadway rehearsal score. It's not handwritten it's fully printed.

I used to have a hard copy of it but lost it.

I am dying to get that cleaner version.

TheatreKid, sorry, I haven't had a chance to update with a link. Here you go:
Carrie Broadway Score

Connor Fitzgerald said...

I Just want to say That ever since you posted that Cleaner version of the Sheet music, I got an approval to use that In an Audition I have Coming up! I'm performing "When There's No One" and I just had to say Thank you Vinnie! (and whoever gaveVinnie the sheet music to begin with)

Vinnie said...

Rycharde provided it for me... though I have a feeling the file didn't originate with him. In any event, congratulations and break a leg, Connor!

Hello! I have some things i would like to talk about to anyone who is willing to listen to me.

FIRST

Rumor has it that the second act two the broadway preformance was either never filmed, or Ken Mendelbaum is the only person that has it...Ken Mendebaum may have it, but it certainly does exist, and if it does (Which it does) He isn't the only person that has it. About a year ago, i was searching on youtube carrie the musical...well the whole "Carrie" thing was just starting out then, and some of the second act was posted...and then it was forced to be taken off. I saw "Out for blood" "Wotta night" and "The destruction" as well as the finale. I do not know why it was taken off, but it was. Most of the first act was posted too, And i saw "I remember how those boys could dance" and at first, it was shot from the balcony, and then it cut to a B-roll shot, with her hands aflame. And it, (Along with the first few clips of the first act) was also then taken off, and it has since to return. SO IT DOES EXIST, AND KEN MENDELBAUM DOES NOT HAVE THE ONLY COPY OF IT.


SECOND


About last year too, I was searching myspace, and i came across Wonder Waiter's Videos of the very first stratford run. I asked him if he had any photos of any of the runs, Broadway or Stratford, and he sent me a file of a shit load of photos, that aren't even on the net...YET. This was before "The new carrie blogsite" was even re-created. So i hope i was the first person to see them, or receive them. So now he's pretty famous, and i can say iv'e had proof, that their are ALOT more photos that have not been released yet. I don't know what pictures were from the stratford run or the broadway run, except for the ones with Betty Buckley, and Barbara Cook. Iv'e seen many pictures of "The destruction" "Heaven" "Out for blood" "I'm not alone" "Carrie" "Carrie reprise # 2" "Don't waste the moon" and a few others. Oh, and about 8 headshots in action. I used have these on my computer, but it's gone now, ever since it was fixed from a virus, and i was VERY upset, because i felt that i had the holy grail of photos for Carrie The Musical fan's out there...

I hope all of this information benefits to this site, because i am one of the musical's biggest fans. I Only want more for the people out there, searching for carrie stuff like i do. So hopefully, somebody can contact Wonder Waiter, to get those photos, for this site. I have tried asking him, but he has since to reply. But i won't stop trying.

If anyone has questions, answers, ANYTHING, or even just to talk about the musical, and it's "Stuff" that is out there, or might be, feel free to E-mail me at:

sansomrocks1027@netscape.net


I know quite a few things about the musical, that most people don't know... so please.....

Oh, a couple more things....I HOPE THE CREATOR OF THIS SITE READS THIS COMMENT.


START A REVIVAL ALREADY!!!
don't even get me started about that!!!

I HAVE ALSO SEEN PICTURES OF THE GAMMEL HELLERUP PRODUCTION! i was searching yahoo, and i cam across a drawn picture of i beleive was a brochure, and a couple of pictures of what i think was the destruction. So i hope somebody can tell us where to find these pictures and/or video.

Hi - thank you so much for this. I think there is a page missing in the song "Carrie", it it page 42 according to the numbers on the pages. do you have this page?

Anonymous said...

I can't than you enough. I've been a Carrie fan (book, all 3 movies and 2 musicals) for over 20 years now. I thought I would never have the score. This is just incredible. I will enjoy workshopping some scenes with my BTEC students.

Hi, I also had trouble accessing both the London score and the Broadway score. It simply did not show up, and I was redirected to a search engine.

Anyone still have a full score?

Anonymous said...

I could easily make a full Orchestra score for this Community, based on the existing recordings, the 2 piano/vocal scores and the list of instruments used in the productions in Stratford and on Broadway.

Would this be of interest? We can come to an agreement conisdering getting backing tracks out for you as well as simplified sheet Music for you, that you could use for Concerts and auditions!
