THE CLASSIC 80s MOVIE LIVE!

HEATHERS

February 22 – March 3, 2019

Music, Lyrics, & Book by Laurence O’Keefe and Kevin Murphy
Based on the motion picture Heathers, distributed by New World Pictures and written by Daniel Walters

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, the original Mean Girls. 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, banishes her from the group, Veronica decides to bite the bullet and kiss Heather’s aerobicized ass, but J.D. has other plans for that bullet…

Brought to you by the award-winning creative 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 musical based on the original greatest teen comedy of all time. With its moving love story, ferocious comedy, and unflinching look at the joys and anguish of high school, Heathers, although conceived during the excess of the 80s, still rings true in today’s youth culture. So, are you in, or are you out?

Tidewater Players, The Resident Community Theatre of Havre de Grace

Tidewater Players is a community theatre group based in the beautiful and historic town of Havre de Grace, Maryland. For 35 years we performed exclusively in the Havre de Grace Opera House on Union Avenue. After two years of performing pop up theatre in various venues throughout Harford County due to the extensive renovations at the building, we are happy to be back home in our position as resident theatrical company in the expanded and refurbished new Cultural Center at the Opera House at 121 N. Union Avenue in Havre de Grace. No longer exclusively the home of Tidewater Players, there will be many other cultural events and even other theatrical companies passing through. Because of this, and to make sure you receive the quality you have come to expect from Tidewater Players productions, we recommend you follow all our news and information on productions here or on our Facebook page linked below (and shown at right), as well as purchase your tickets through the link above.

Please take a moment to join our mailing list below, to be sure to receive updates on new shows and auditions as they become available.

Thank you for supporting the arts in Havre de Grace and Harford County!
