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) and Andy Fickman (Reefer Madness, She’s the Man). HEATHERS THE MUSICAL is a hilarious, heartfelt and homicidal new show based on the greatest teen comedy of all time. (based on the film by Daniel Waters) With its moving love story, laugh-out-loud comedy and unflinching look at the joys and anguish of high school, HEATHERS will be New Orleans’ most popular new musical. This talented cast of NOCCA Alum, current students, faculty and professionals from the community are taking you back to 1989 for this hilarious campy spoof of the movie. Yes, your favorite lines from the movie are in this production, along with the characters that made this cult film a classic. This show deals with adult situations and is recommended for mature audiences only. Presented by the NOCCA Stage Company and directed by Big Easy Award winning director Blake Coheley, HEATHERS THE MUSICAL opens June 9th and runs through the 19th on the NOCCA campus. Musical Director is Big Easy Award winner Jefferson Turner, who turns up the volume in this new rock and roll stage adaptation. See the NOCCA website for ticket info and showtimes. ( “Corn nuts” will be on sale at the concession stand!! “Are you in, or are you out?”
