Heathers the Musical is a dark and delicious story based on the 1988 cult film classic film which starred Winona Ryder and Christian Slater. In the musical, Veronica Sawyer is a brainy teenage misfit who hustles her way into the most powerful and ruthless clique at Westerberg High: the Heathers — three ultra-rich and ultra-popular girls who rule the school through fear and intimidation. 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 suck up to the Supreme Queen of the click… 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 Andy Fickman (Reefer Madness, She’s the Man), Heathers The Musical is a hilarious, heartfelt, and — dare we say, homicidal —musical based on one of the most popular teen comedies of all time.

With its moving love story, laugh-out-loud comedy, and unflinching look at the joys and anguish of high school, Heathers asks, are you in, or are you out?
