Heathers opened last weekend at Theater on the Square! I knew nothing about this musical until a few months ago, but after hearing the music I immediately fell in love! If you're familiar with the 1989 cult classic movie, you know the plot is a little quirky but the music is hilarious and gorgeous!
I play "Heather McNamara," the blond airhead of the group, but also the kindest. It's kind of a dream role. She's eccentric and funny, but also grows throughout the show and shows her less than perfect side. I've enjoyed exploring the character, and making her more than just the traditional blond dumbo.
We run for Three more weekends, and I can already feel the show growing with each performance. There are a lot of young castmates in the show as well, and it's been fun seeing this experience through their eyes...and having flashbacks of some of my first theatre experiences...as well as high school...😳
I've included some photos from the show below:
