July 28 – August 26, 2016
Westerberg High is ruled by a shoulder-padded, scrunchie-wearing trio: Heather, Heather and Heather, the hottest and cruelest girls in all of Ohio. When misfit Veronica Sawyer rejects their evil regime for a new boyfriend, the dark and sexy stranger J.D., all hell breaks loose. When kids start dying no one will ever be the same. This hilarious musical, based on the classic 1989 film, is co-written by the writer of LEGALLY BLONDE and BAT BOY.
