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 kick Heather’s aerobicized butt…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 BoyLegally Blonde), and Andy Fickman (Reefer MadnessShe’s the Man), Heathers The Musical is a hilarious, heartfelt, and homicidal musical based on the 1988 cult film. It combines a moving love story with laugh-out-loud comedy and an unflinching look at the joys and anguish of high school. Are you in, or are you out?

Please note that Heathers The Musical contains strong references to bullying, teen suicide, and violence in schools, and it may not be suitable for all audiences.
