Heathers: The Musical
October 31, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$21
The Jeanine Larson Dobbins Conservatory of Theatre and Dance Series presents “Heathers: The Musical” at Southeast Missouri State University’s River Campus. Hilarious, heartfelt, and homicidal — with its moving love story, laugh-out-loud comedy, and unflinching look at the joys and anguish of high school, “Heathers” is one of the most popular new musicals in recent history.
Based on the wildly popular cult film classic, “Heathers,” the show follows Veronica as she falls in love while climbing atop the high school food chain. When character Heather Chandler, the Almighty, kicks her out of the group, Veronica decides to bow down to demands. However, her dark and dangerous love interest has another plan.
With lyrics and book by Laurence O’Keefe and Kevin Murphy, this rock musical is based on the 1988 film of the same name written by Daniel Waters. After opening in Los Angeles, the show moved Off-Broadway in 2014 followed by an Off-West End run. The production is certain to spark conversations, appealing to anyone who’s ever been in love, trouble or high school.
The show has adult themes, but it will appeal to anyone who loved the movie. It’s a dark comedy and great fun, but there’s a real point to its message.
