Heathers The Musical (High School Edition) is the story of Veronica Sawyer, a brainy 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 J.D., the dangerously handsome new kid. When Heather Chandler, the Almighty, kicks her out of the group, things go vastly awry.
While it is a high-energy black comedy, the show opens conversations about dark issues, including bullying, teen suicide, sexual assault, and violence in schools.
Session dates: September 16 – October 27, 2019
Ages 14-20 (younger/older with permission). Acceptance is by audition only. We will cast a total of 17-20 actors.
Heathers is rated strong PG-13.
Character Breakdown / Project Needs
VERONICA SAWYER - She burns to be both cool and kind, but doesn’t know yet how to be both at the same time. Fierce sense of right and wrong, keen sense of ironic humor. Thinks she's an old soul, but she's still innocent enough to be blindsided by love/hormones (or shocked by cruelty).
JD - He is darkly charismatic, compelling, attractive, charming on the outside yet very damaged on the inside. Keen smarts and strong inventive comedy.
HEATHER CHANDLER - Richest, hottest, most magnetic, cruelest girl in town. Relishes power and wields it like a scalpel – no fear, no patience, no mercy.
HEATHER MCNAMARA - Beautiful, innocent, stupid, can be mean on command if Heather Chandler orders it, but actually quite vulnerable and fearful.
HEATHER DUKE - Whipping-girl of the 3 Heathers. When she finally becomes Queen Bee she wields power like a bulldozer.
MARTHA DUNNSTOCK - Nicknamed “Martha Dumptruck”, the opposite of hot, confident, or popular. Beautiful soul, optimistic even in the face of rejection.
RAM SWEENEY - Linebacker. Insensitive to the feelings of others, ruled by appetites.
KURT KELLY - Quarterback and Captain. Rude, entitled, cocky. Mean, thinks he’s the brains in the friendship with Ram.
RAM’S DAD / BIG BUD DEAN / COACH RIPPER - Ram’s Dad: Former football player turned suburban Dad, has never outgrown his glory days in high school. Hates weakness, but capable of soul-searching when tragedy strikes. Also plays Big Bud Dean: JD’s single Dad. Big jolly personality that barely conceals the enormous rage bubbling just below the surface. Also plays Coach Ripper: Stalwart, man’s man; quick to defend his players.
MS. FLEMING / VERONICA’S MOM - Ms. Fleming: Aging hippie teacher, still yearning for the day the Age of Aquarius reaches Ohio. Hungry for the spotlight, resentful of entitled youth. Also plays Veronica’s Mom: easygoing, distant, yet capable of laying down the law.
KURT’S DAD / VERONICA’S DAD / PRINCIPAL GOWAN - Kurt’s Dad: Straight-laced, very conservative, also former football player. A simple guy, not book smart, you’d be happy to share a beer with him. Also plays Veronica’s Dad: Easygoing and distant. Also plays Principal Gowan: Rumpled, burned out, hates conflict.
BOY 1 - Bitter Geek. A put-upon, bitter geek.
BOY 2 - Blowdried Preppy. A blowdried 80’s preppy.
BOY 3 - Hipster Dork. Thinks he’s Ducky from ‘Pretty In Pink.’
GIRL 1 - Goth Girl. A sullen goth girl.
GIRL 2 - Stoner Chick. A fuzzyheaded stoner chick.
GIRL 3 - Young Republicanette. A tennis-playing, uptight Student Council type.
