About the Shows
Heathers: The Musical.... By Laurence O'Keefe, Kevin Murphy
Director: Titian Lish
Rehearses: January 16 - April 5
Performs: April 6 - 15
Based on the classic 1989 film, Heathers The Musical is the darkly delicious story of Veronica Sawyer, a brainy, beautiful teenage misfit who hustles her way into the most powerful and ruthless clique at Westerberg High: the Heathers. But before she can get comfortable atop the high school food chain, Veronica falls in love with the dangerously sexy new kid J.D. When Heather Chandler, the Almighty, kicks her out of the group, Veronica decides to bite the bullet and kiss Heather’s aerobicized ass...but J.D. has another plan for that bullet. Brought to you by the award-winning creative team of Kevin Murphy (Reefer Madness, “Desperate Housewives”), Laurence O’Keefe (Bat Boy, Legally Blonde) and Andy Fickman (Reefer Madness, She’s the Man). Heathers The Musical is a hilarious, heartfelt, and homicidal show based on the greatest teen comedy of all time. With its moving love story, laugh-out-loud comedy, and unflinching look at the joys and anguish of high school, will you be in, or are you out?

A collage of song, performances, monologues, and scenes that form a picture of an America of the past and present; the “greatest generation” through to the current one.
Audition Preparation: Seeking a dynamic ensemble of 12+ theatre artists to bring this human tale of constant reinvention life. All ages, ethnicities, body types, and abilities are encouraged to audition. No need to prepare anything. Those auditioning should dress to move, and plan to stay for the entire time–it’s OK if you need to slip out to audition for Heathers. Be prepared to demonstrate a talent other than acting–play a musical instrument, do a short dance, tell a great joke, or even whistle happy birthday. We will also be reading from the script. No additional preparation is needed.
