Heathers: The Musical

April 22, 2017

I stage managed Heathers: The Musical with a co-stage manager and an assistant. We were the point of contact between the production staff, the artistic directors, the technical directors, and the actors. In total we worked with about 80 people within the organization in order to keep the logistics of the show running along. We also took down blocking and staging notes at every rehearsal for record keeping. Stage managers also call the cues for actor transitions, lights, and sound.

Heathers: The Musical is 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. (Synopsis from Samuel French)
