The ACF Theatre Seniors and Juniors Present HEATHERS THE MUSICAL (Teen Edition)!
The A.C. Flora Theatre Seniors and Juniors present HEATHERS THE MUSICAL (Teen Edition) on November 4-7 (see specific times below). Based on Daniel Waters' classic 1989 film starring Winona Ryder and Christian Slater, this musical, written by Kevin Murphy and Laurence O'Keefe follows Veronica Sawyer, a teenage brainiac, who suddenly finds herself a member of the most powerful clique at Westerberg High School (a group of 3 beautiful girls all named "Heather.") While she does not necessarily approve of the Heathers' cruel ways, Veronica proudly rides the wave of popularity. However, when she begins dating a rebellious loner named JD, she suddenly begins to question her entire existence as a serious of unfortunate events begin to unfold around her. Can Veronica do the right thing before it's too late? HEATHERS, as a musical, may contain some laughs and moments of campy fun, but it also contains a significant comment on the amount of pressure that teenagers have faced everyday for years. Pressure to be skinny, pressure to make the best grades, pressure to be popular, pressure to fit in, pressure to be noticed, pressure to be pretty, etc. This momentous amount of pressure not only significantly affects the teenage psyche but also can lead directly to bullying, abusive relationships, gun violence, or suicide. As instances of these tragic events have unfortunately continued in SC and across the USA, HEATHERS remains as relevant as ever with today's teenagers. The ACF Theatre Department has assembled two extremely talented casts of students, who effortlessly bring these struggling teen characters to life onstage. Don't miss some of the most powerful acting and singing that you will see performed on the ACF Stage! Due to COVID-19, the show will be presented to a limited audience capacity. Tickets will initially be offered to the families of each actor. If any tickets are left, they will be sold to the General Public beginning 24 Hours before Each Performance.
