Heathers The Musical

A Musical Twist on a Cult Classic Movie

I stage managed for 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 is the story of Veronica Sawyer, a senior at the fictional Westerberg High. Veronica longs to be cool like the clique of it-girls that runs Westerberg: the unaffected, unattainable Heathers. Unfortunately, in addition to awesome levels of popularity, the Heathers are also cruel, choosing to mock and bully their kingdom into submission. When Veronica uses her skills as a forger to get the Heathers out of detention, she impresses their leader Heather Chandler— so much so that they agree to let her into their exclusive club. At first Veronica is thrilled—until she finds out that being one of the Heathers means bullying the same kids she used to call friends.
