Auditions! Heathers (Teen Version) Ages 14+
We are beyond thrilled to announce our TEEN production of Heathers!
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 attractive 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 butt...but J.D. has another plan for that bullet. Heathers The Musical is a hilarious, heartfelt, and homicidal new show based on the greatest teen comedy of all time. Are you in, or are you out?
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).
Please familiarize yourself with the show before signing up for auditions. We are performing the teen version not the adult version. Heathers contains mature themes that may not be appropriate for all actors. This production will also incorporate anti-bullying workshops and will also help raise money for suicide prevention. We want to give our young actors a safe space to explore big emotions and to explore issues that they may be dealing with. Here is a link to an article that motivated us to pick this show, Why Heathers?!? (indiancreekschool.org).
