It is the late 1980’s and Veronica has just transferred to a new high school. She quickly discovers the pecking order inside the student population and it’s pretty ugly. There are “jocks”, “nerds”, “potheads” and more. At the top of this food chain are: “The Heathers”. There is murder, body shaming, homophobia, talk of suicide and the constant need to be popular at all costs. Through dark humor and wit, this play, presented in audio-only format, offers a cautionary tale about the greed and excess of a 1980’s America through the lens of high school students, accompanied by visual collages by Jamie Grace-Duff and four short dance films featuring choreography and performances by Paule Turner and Rowan Theatre & Dance students.
HEATHERS: THE MUSICAL is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals. www.concordtheatricals.com
Heathers: The Musical was originally directed Off-Broadway by Andy Fickman and choreographed by Marguerite Derricks.
