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.
Brought to you by the award-winning creative team of Kevin Murphy (Reefer Madness, “Desperate Housewives”), Laurence O’Keefe (Bat Boy, Legally Blonde). Heathers The Musical is a hilarious, heartfelt and homicidal new show based on the greatest teen comedy of all time. Heathers The Musical is based on the 1980’s cult classic movie Heathers.
This is a Non-Equity production. There is no stipend for this show.
Cast List and Breakdown:
(Due to the language and subject matter we will not be casting anyone under 18.)
Seeking strong singers, actors and dancers. Age ranges 18- 50 (must be able to play a high school student). Anyone who is auditioning for Kurt, Ram, JD and Veronica must be comfortable with being in underwear on stage.
VERONICA SAWYER – 17
She burns to be both cool and kind, but doesn’t know yet how to be both at the same time. Fierce sense of right and wrong, keen sense of ironic humor. Thinks she's an old soul, but she's still innocent enough to be blindsided by love/hormones (or shocked by cruelty).
Voice: High belting required, up to Ab. Must have dynamic and stylistic range.
JD - 17
He is darkly charismatic, compelling, attractive, charming on the outside yet very damaged on the inside. Keen smarts and strong inventive comedy.
Voice: Strong, confident belt to at least an Ab, A preferable; wide emotional range.
HEATHER CHANDLER – 17
Richest, hottest, most magnetic, cruelest girl in town. Relishes power and wields it like a scalpel – no fear, no patience, no mercy.
Voice: Strong belt to F or higher preferred. Mezzo for chorus.
HEATHER MCNAMARA – 17
Beautiful, innocent, stupid, can be mean on command if Heather Chandler orders it, but actually quite vulnerable and fearful.
Voice: Strong belt to Db, D preferred. Soprano for chorus.
HEATHER DUKE – 17
Whipping-girl of the 3 Heathers. When she finally becomes Queen Bee she wields power like a bulldozer.
Voice: Strong belt to C, D preferred. Alto for chorus.
MARTHA DUNNSTOCK - 17
Nicknamed “Martha Dumptruck”, the opposite of hot, confident, or popular. Huge and beautiful soul, optimistic even in the face of rejection.
Voice: Strong belt to E or F, wide vocal expression.
RAM SWEENEY – 17
Linebacker. Big, insensitive to the feelings of others, ruled by appetites.
Voice: Strong Baritone, belt to G, some Falsetto useful.
KURT KELLY – 17
Quarterback and Captain. Big, chiseled, rude, entitled, cocky. Mean, thinks he’s the brains in the friendship with Ram.
Voice: Tenor, strong belt to Ab or A, some Falsetto.
RAM’S DAD/BIG BUD DEAN/COACH RIPPER - 40 to 45
Ram’s Dad: Former football player turned suburban Dad, has never outgrown his glory days in high school. Hates weakness, but capable of soul-searching when tragedy strikes. Also plays Big Bud Dean: JD’s single Dad. Big jolly personality that barely conceals the enormous rage bubbling just below the surface. Quite possibly a serial bomber. Also plays Coach Ripper: Stalwart, man’s man; quick to defend his players.
Voice: Baritone/Tenor – power Country/Gospel belt to Ab, higher welcome.
MS. FLEMING/VERONICA’S MOM - 45 to 50
Ms. Fleming: Aging hippie teacher, still yearning for the day the Age of Aquarius reaches Ohio. Hungry for the spotlight, resentful of entitled youth. Also plays Veronica’s Mom: easygoing, distant, yet capable of laying down the law.
Voice: Great belt up to C, higher always welcome.
KURT’S DAD/VERONICA’S DAD/PRINCIPAL GOWAN - 30 to 45
Kurt’s Dad: Straight-laced, very conservative, also former football player. A simple guy, not book smart, you’d be happy to share a beer with him. Also plays Veronica’s Dad: Easygoing and distant. Principal Gowan: Rumpled, burned out, hates conflict.
Voice: Strong Baritone/Tenor -- power Country/Gospel belt to G, even higher better. Also plays
BOY 1 - Bitter Geek 16-18. A put-upon, bitter geek.
Voice: Bari (up to F#) or Tenor (up to A).
BOY 2 - Blow-dried Preppy 16-18. A blow-dried 80’s prep.
Voice: Bass (up to E) or Bari (up to G#).
GIRL 1 - Stoner Chick/ Goth Girl 16-18. A fuzzyheaded stoner goth chick.
Voice: Belt to at least C# (a Soprano up to high A/B is also a plus).
GIRL 2 - Young Republicanette 16-18. A tennis-playing, uptight Student Council type.
Voice: Belt to at least C# (Soprano up to high A/B is also a plus).
