Wild Horse presents Heathers the Musical
Beautiful, brainy teenage misfit Veronica Sawyer hustles her way into the most powerful, ruthless clique at Westerberg High, the Heathers. But before she can get comfortable atop the high school food chain, Veronica falls in love with new kid J.D., a mysterious teen rebel who plans to put the Heathers in their place—six feet under.
After a year-and-a half-long postponement of its March 2020 show, Wild Horse Stage Company presents Heathers the Musical: High School Edition, the inaugural show of the company’s new adult/young adult division, directed by Sierra Scott and Tara Burke. Heathers plays this weekend only. Mature themes such as violence and suicide earn this show a PG13 rating. Masks required.
