The Young Artists of Wolf Theatre Academy Present: Heathers the Musical
Heathers The Musical (High School Edition) 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 handsome 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. Brought to you by the award-winning creative team of Kevin Murphy (Reefer Madness, Desperate Housewives), Laurence O’Keefe (Bat Boy, Legally Blonde) and director Andy Fickman (Reefer Madness, She’s the Man), Heathers The Musical (High School Edition) is a hilarious, heartfelt, and homicidal new show based one of the greatest teen comedies of all time (the film was ranked number 5 on the Entertainment Weekly list of the “50 Best High School Movies”).
NOTE: Acting/Stagecraft students from grades 6 – 12 work in collaboration with professional directors and designers to fully produce a well known theatrical work on the stage of The Elaine Wolf Theatre. Performers and Technical Apprentices will participate in a three week intensive that culminates in a show run of six performances.
