HEATHERS: THE MUSICAL

Book, Music, and Lyrics by Kevin Murphy and Laurence O’Keefe
Based on the film written by Daniel Waters

Performances May 9-13th at 7:00pm with May 12th at 2:00pm and 7:00pm

Heathers: The Musical is a hilarious, heartfelt, and homicidal new show based on the greatest teen comedy of all time. Westerberg High is ruled by a shoulder-padded, scrunchie-wearing trio: Heather, Heather, and Heather, the most popular but cruelest girls of the school. But misfit Veronica Sawyer rejects their evil regime for a new boyfriend, the dark and mysterious new kid; J.D., who plans to put the Heathers in their place – six feet under.  With its moving love story, laugh-out-loud comedy, and unflinching look at the joys and anguish of high school, Heathers puts perspective on the high-school experience and what’s really important in life.
