"Heathers: The Musical" by Kevin Murphy and Laurence O'Keefe

Westerberg High is ruled by a shoulder-padded, scrunchie-wearing junta: Heather, Heather and Heather, the hottest and cruelest girls in all of Ohio. But misfit Veronica Sawyer rejects their evil regime for a new boyfriend, the mysterious rebel J.D., who plans to put the Heathers in their place: six feet under. Based on the 1988 film that became a cult hit, the rock musical “Heathers” is a dark comedy following the social politics of late ’80s teens. Dean Scott Zigler, Assistant Dean Krisha Marcano and stage combat instructor Kelly Martin Mann co-direct.

Director’s note: recommended for mature audiences.
