Heathers The Musical


Here is a link to a photo and article about the cast of Heathers on the Out of the Darkness walk, from the Saugus Advertiser on Wicked Local.

Theatre Company of Saugus (TCS) will present Heathers  The Musical in October 2016.  A dark comedy with book, music, and lyrics by Laurence O’Keefe and Kevin Murphy.

Based on the classic 1989 film, 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 dark and sexy stranger J.D., who plans to put the Heathers in their place – six feet under.

TCS will present Heathers at a new venue, the American Legion Hall in Saugus, Massachusetts, at 44 Taylor Street.  Please see our Directions page.

Performances are scheduled for Fridays and Saturdays 21, 22, 28, 29 October 2016, starting at 8:00 PM.  With Sunday matinees on 23, 30 October, starting at 2:00 PM.

Tickets for Heathers are $25 for adults and $22 for seniors and students.  Purchase details are to be announced soon on our Tickets page.

The TCS production of Heathers will be directed by Kathleen Tringale, and musically directed by Anthony Sacco.  This is the same artistic team that mounted our recent excellent production of Urinetown.  The stage manager is Antonio Masiello.

Heathers The Musical 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 sexy 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 ass… 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).
