CHARACTER BREAKDOWN

Stuart (M, any age) Prudence’s libidinous therapist who has slept with most of his patients. He has a macho exterior but suffers insecurity because he is no good in bed.

Charlotte (F, any age) Bruce’s therapist- sweet and well-intentioned, but completely scatterbrained and highly eccentric.

Bob (M, late 20s to mid-30s) Bruce’s live-in lover who is extraordinarily jealous of Bruce’s desire to date and eventually marry a woman while keeping him on the side.

Andrew (M, late teens to late 20s) A waiter with a dark edge.

Bruce and Prudence are deeply into their weekly therapy sessions. The usual topic of conversation? Their dating lives, or lack thereof. Bruce’s eccentric female therapist thinks he should take out an ad in the personal section while Prudence’s macho therapist stresses that she needs to be more assertive. Bruce is bi-curious, and his partner doesn't understand his desire to date women while Prudence doesn't know what to make of her new, unpredictable boyfriend. The Durang play was adapted for film in 1987 starring Jeff Goldblum and Julie Hagerty. Do they learn to live beyond therapy? You be the judge.

We are proud to bring you this new contemporary musical based on the 1989 film of the same name written by Daniel Waters and starring Winona Ryder & Christian Slater. This deliciously dark story centers around Veronica Sawyer, a beautiful teenage misfit who hustles her way into the most powerful and ruthless clique at Westerberg High. "The Heathers” are what everyone aspires to be, and what no one can ever seem to achieve. Before she settles into her new blue scrunchy atop the high school food chain, Veronica falls in love with a sexy new outsider. When Heather Chandler kicks her out of the group, Veronica and JD's teen angst starts racking up a body count. It’s gonna be SO VERY!

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN:


VERONICA SAWYER
Age: 18-25
Burns to be both cool and kind, but doesn’t know yet how to be both at the same time. Fierce sense of right and wrong, keen sense of ironic humor. Thinks she's an old soul but she's still innocent enough to be blindsided by love/hormones (or shocked by cruelty). Voice: High belting required, up to Ab. Must have dynamic and stylistic range.
Voice: Mezzo-Soprano/Strong high belt up to Ab


JD
Age: 18-25
He is darkly charismatic, compelling, attractive, charming on the outside yet very damaged on the inside. Keen smarts and strong inventive comedy, wide emotional range.
Voice: Strong, confident belt to A


HEATHER CHANDLER
Age: 18-25
Richest, hottest, most magnetic, cruelest girl in town. Relishes power and wields it like a scalpel – no fear, no patience, no mercy.
Voice: Strong belt to F or higher preferred. Mezzo for chorus.


HEATHER MCNAMARA
Age: 18-25
Beautiful, innocent, stupid, can be mean on command if Heather Chandler orders it, but actually quite vulnerable and fearful.
Voice: Strong belt to D. Soprano for chorus.


HEATHER DUKE
Age: 18-25
Whipping-girl of the 3 Heathers. When she finally becomes Queen Bee she wields power like a bulldozer. Alto for chorus.
Voice: Strong belt to D. Alto for chorus.


MARTHA DUNNSTOCK
Age: 18-25
Nicknamed “Martha Dumptruck”, the opposite of hot, confident, or popular. Huge and beautiful soul, optimistic even in the face of rejection.
Voice: Strong belt to E or F, wide vocal expression.


RAM SWEENEY
Age: 18-25
Linebacker. Big, insensitive to the feelings of others, ruled by appetites.
Voice: Strong Baritone, belt to G, some Falsetto useful.


KURT KELLY
Age: 18-25
Quarterback and Captain. Big, chiseled, rude, entitled, cocky. Mean, thinks he’s the brains in the friendship with Ram.
Voice: Tenor, strong belt to A, some Falsetto.


RAM’S DAD/BIG BUD DEAN/COACH RIPPER
Age: 35+
Ram’s Dad: Former football player turned suburban Dad, has never outgrown his glory days in high school. Hates weakness, but capable of soul-searching when tragedy strikes. Also plays Big Bud Dean: JD’s single Dad. Big jolly personality that barely conceals the enormous rage bubbling just below the surface. Quite possibly a serial bomber.
Coach Ripper: Stalwart, man’s man; quick to defend his players.
Voice: Baritone/Tenor – power Country/Gospel belt to Ab, higher welcome.
