Heathers

The Un-Common Theatre Company is thrilled to announce auditions for “Heathers The Musical”, an edgy, guilty-pleasure rock musical which explores the dark side of the struggle for social status in high school. Auditions will be held on Monday, May 23rd with performances on July 14-17, 2016, at the MMAS Black Box Theater in Mansfield, MA.

“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. 

With Book, Music & Lyrics by the award-winning team of Kevin Murphy (Reefer Madness, “Desperate Housewives”) and 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. With its moving love story, laugh-out-loud comedy and unflinching look at the joys and anguish of high school, Heathers will bring back all of the angst! Are you in, or are you out?

**This production contains profanity and mature themes**

Things to Know About Un-Common Auditions


Auditions for Un-Common shows are open to all those interested within the age ranges specified. No previous acting experience or affiliation with the theatre company is necessary.

An auditioner will audition with many actors and will be offered a role at the total discretion of the director, choreographer and music director. Parent participation, affiliation with Un-Common Theatre or past involvement will not be considered in casting decisions. Every performer comes with different strengths and qualities and casting decisions are made based on many factors including talent (singing, dancing and acting), look (age/height/coloring), how auditioners look/interact as a group, etc. This process is often difficult and the creative team (director, music director and choreographer) takes great care in casting the best mix of performers for each production.

We customarily present four productions throughout our season. Auditions and performance dates for these shows are:
  Auditions Show Performances  
  September Fall Production November/December  
  December Young Performers Production March
 
  December or January Spring Production April
 
  May Young Adult Production July
 
  May Improv Soup Monthly October - June
