How would you like to go to prom with Carrie White on Halloween?

Starting on Oct. 31, Some Theatre Company will perform "Carrie: The Musical," based on the novel that launched Stephen King's literary career.

You know the story. Carrie White is an outcast, a shy girl with telekinetic powers and a religious zealot for a mother. She's bullied in school, until ... well, like we said, you know the story. It gets pretty messy.

The local adaption -- performed three-quarters in the round at Keith Anderson Community House in Orono -- promises to be an up-close-and personal, immersive experience, said the show's director, Elaine Bard.

The special, 8 p.m. performance on Oct. 31 will feature dancing, a costume contest, prizes and other events before and after the show. VIP tickets for the Halloween show are sold out, but a limited number of tickets remain. (Translation: If you want to go to the Oct. 31 show, you might want to hurry up and get tickets.)

After the Halloween show, here's the rest of the run:

  • Friday, Nov. 3, 7.30 p.m.
  • Saturday, Nov. 4, 2 p.m. and 7.30 p.m.
  • Sunday, Nov. 5, 2 p.m.
  • Friday, Nov. 10, 7.30 p.m.
  • Saturday, Nov. 11, 2 p.m. and 7.30 p.m.
  • Sunday, Nov. 12, 2 p.m.

Oh, and here's something cool. Every audience member will go into a drawing for a signed copy of King's novel.

And, don't forget. Like we told you earlier, the Penobscot Theatre Company is also performing a King adaption. PTC will perform "Misery" starting Oct. 12.
