HEATHERS The Musical

Music, Book & Lyrics by Laurence O'Keefe & Kevin Murphy
Directed by Thomas W. Jones, II
Heathers poster


There are three of them, and the three Heathers rule Westerburg! Veronica is torn—to be popular or to, well, do what? Luckily, J.D. arrives with answers; but this Prince Charming has a deep, dark side.  Based on the cult-hit movie, this Off-Broadway Musical is a co-production with the Program of Music. High School-- it’s not for kids anymore! Be advised: as Heathers is set in a high school, it has strong language, bullying, body-shaming, violence, suicidal ideation, and Slurpee’s.
