Young Actors Playhouse is excited to announce auditions for this ground-breaking musical!
Heathers The Musical (High School Edition) 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 handsome 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 butt… 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 director Andy Fickman (Reefer Madness, She’s the Man), Heathers The Musical (High School Edition) is a hilarious, heartfelt and homicidal new show based on the greatest teen comedy of all time.
This version of “Heathers the Musical” has had many of the more risque scenes/songs toned down or removed, HOWEVER there are still scenes with kissing, profanity, murder, and sexually suggestive dialogue. If this is something you are not comfortable with your child performing, please consider our other summer musical instead.
Students ages 13-20.
Auditions are 6:00 PM, Monday May 21st.
Callbacks are 6:00 PM, Wednesday, May 23rd. Students will be notified via email if they have been called back.
Auditions will be at our Kennesaw Studio:
1610 Cobb International Blvd
Kennesaw, GA 30152
The kids auditioning will be taught group choreography. Please wear footwear and clothing appropriate for dance. Following the dance audition, kids will be asked to sing a prepared contemporary musical number which shows off their vocal abilities.
1. Please bring your own accompaniment on a mobile device that is able to be plugged into aux cord.
2. Please be prepared to sing the whole song start to finish, though we will likely stop you after one minute, or ask to sing the ending.
3. Please be prepared to sing in the presence of everyone else auditioning.
There is NO production fee for students to participate in this show. HOWEVER, cast members are required to pre-purchase 20 tickets at $15 each before they are assigned a role in the show. Cast members may sell these tickets to friends and family, or give them away.
Main rehearsals are Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning May 29th, 6:00-9:00. Main characters will be called to additional rehearsals to rehearse smaller scenes/songs. These additional rehearsals will be dependent on the students’ availability over the summer. We will not have rehearsals on July 3rd or July 5th.
We are fully aware students may not be available for every rehearsal over the summer, so please be prepared to provide us with all the rehearsal dates in which you will be out of town. Extended absences won’t necessarily disqualify you from being cast. We will have make-up rehearsals before or after the student’s vacation to help them get caught up on the material.
