"Heathers The Musical", is a production about a high school student who befriends the wrong people in order to fit in. Based on the 1988 movie starring Winona Ryder and Christian Slater, "Heathers" debuted off Broadway in 2015. The storyline highlights many challenging themes, including popularity, bullying, mental illness, attempted sexual assault, and suicide. While the Miramonte production follows the school edition which has been edited for some language and content, the themes remain difficult ones and have been treated delicately. In preparation, the cast, crew, and directors participated in full-day retreat focused on how to address these sensitive topics and what they hoped the audience would take away from their performance. Following the opening night show, there will be an open discussion between actors, directors and audience members.
The Miramonte Drama department has approached their performances with great preparation and thoughtfulness. Although these issues are difficult and disturbing, theatre can be a powerful place to engage in dialogue about the society in which we live.
