'Heathers: The Musical' Opens Theatre USA Season
Posted on September 21, 2016 by Alice Jackson
Based on the 1988 Winona Ryder movie, “Heathers: The Musical” is a very dark comedy set in a high school and follows the adventures of Veronica Sawyer as she attempts to join the school’s coolest clique, the Heathers. Also included is a budding love affair with a new bad boy, Jason “J.D.” Dean, completing the recipe for a wild, musical ride.
Communications major Emily Ericson will play Veronica, criminal justice major Jeremiah Sims will portray J.D. and theatre and dance major Cassidy Dangler will be Heather Chandler. Additional cast members include Josh Alter, Will Ballard, Desmond Bozeman, John-David Burkart, Tiffany Byrd, Aryn Carr, Pierce Cleveland, Trenton Davis, Payton-Brooke Fulford, Shanna Hornsby, Samantha Jefferies, Brady King, Jessica Moore, Abigail St. John, Blake Waters and Lily Webb.
Dr. Lars Tatom, chair and associate professor of theatre, will be director with musical direction by Dr. Thomas Rowell, professor of music; and choreography directed by Katie Felis, adjunct instructor, theatre and dance.
Tatom said the show contains adult language and situations, and some violence, and is not appropriate for children under the age of 16.
