HEATHERS: The Musical

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.

 

HEATHERS: The Musical is based on the 1989 film staring Winona Ryder, Christian Slater and Shannen Doherty which was directed by Michael Lehmann and written by Daniel Waters.

Burns to both cool and kind, but doesn’t yet know how to be both at the same time. Fierce sense of right and wrong, keen sense of ironic humour.  Thinks she’s an old soul, but she’s still innocent enough to be blindsided by love or shocked by cruelty.
