Heathers the Musical (High School Edition) is a new adaptation of the Broadway musical based on the 1990’s cult classic movie. It is a dark comedy that tells the story of Veronica Sawyer; a brainy 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 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.
Adapted to be appropriate for a teenage cast and audience, the show deals with the important issues of suicide, gun violence, violent death/murder, body shaming, bullying, sexual assault, and homophobia. While the high school version of this musical has removed much of the language, sexual situations, drinking, and drug use found in the original, the author chose to leave in some language and themes that can be abrasive. For this reason, we have chosen to rate this show PG-13, which means Parents Strongly Cautioned – some material may be inappropriate for children under 13. As always, families are advised to do
