CALLBACKS (if called):
Wednesday, October 5, 8:00 - 9:30 p.m.
Calling Singers, Dancers, Actors in Grades 8 – 12 -- serious performers willing to work as part of a team to share their talents, refine their skills, and create a high quality show. Performers of all ethnic and racial backgrounds are encouraged to attend. Please consider your commitment to the show prior to your audition, as we obviously can’t promise lead roles to everyone. Every role, ensemble included, will be exciting and fun, as well as a valuable experience.
- Prepare 32 bars from two contrasting musical theatre songs (one up-tempo, one ballad). Select songs you have a strong connection with, and cut to the moments in the song that show-off your voice the best. Please do not choose songs from Heathers the Musical: Teen Edition.
- How to prepare your accompaniment music for auditions: If copied, hole‐punch the music and put in a binder. The music should be on the front and back of each page. If only printed on one side, tape the pages together so they are back‐to‐back or put them back to back in a non-glare sleeve. If music is bound, it should lay flat when open.
- You will be asked to read a scene — no preparation needed.
- A headshot or school picture, which will not be returned
- A resume, if available
- Shoes and appropriate clothes for dance (no flip flops, crocs, etc.) — you will be taught a short dance combination to be performed in a group.
- Sheet music (not CD’s) in a binder for your audition song in the the key in which you will sing (sheet music is available in local music stores and online — www.sheetmusicplus.com or www.musicnotes.com for example). An Accompanist will be provided (“a cappella” audition songs will not be accepted).
- If you have questions about what to prepare or what to expect at the audition, don’t hesitate to email or call us.

Heathers The Musical: Teen Edition 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. But before she can get comfortable atop the high school food chain, Veronica falls in love with the dangerously handsome new kid J.D. When Heather Chandler, the Almighty, kicks her out of the group, Veronica decides to bite the bullet and kiss Heather’s aerobicized butt... but J.D. has another plan for that bullet.
Brought to you by the award-winning creative team of Kevin Murphy (Reefer Madness, Desperate Housewives), Laurence O’Keefe (Bat Boy, Legally Blonde) and director Andy Fickman (Reefer Madness, She’s the Man), Heathers The Musical: Teen Edition is a hilarious, heartfelt and homicidal new show based on the greatest teen comedy of all time.
