2021- 2022 Theatre Season

Working in theatre, either acting or on the technical side, can help build your employment resume by improving your communication, collaboration and critical thinking skills, as well as increasing your confidence. 

Heathers: The Musical

About the Show:

"Heathers: The Musical" is a rock musical based on the 1989 film written by Daniel Waters. The music, lyrics, and book for the musical are by Kevin Murphy and Laurence O’Keefe.

In "Heathers," Westerberg High is ruled by a shoulder-padded, scrunchie-wearing junta: Heather, Heather and Heather, the hottest and cruelest girls in all of Ohio. But misfit Veronica Sawyer rejects their evil regime for a new boyfriend, the dark and sexy stranger J.D., who plans to put the Heathers in their place - six feet under.

Audition Information:

Date: Saturday, April 24, 2021
Time: Noon-4 p.m., by appointment
Where: The Black Box Theatre in 143 Castleman Hall on Missouri S&T’s campus
Scheduling: We will adhere to Covid regulations and guidelines. Auditions will be scheduled in 15-minute time slots between Noon and 4 p.m. on a first-come, first-serve basis. Email the director, Taylor Gruenloh, at gruenloht@mst.edu to schedule an audition.

Audition process: Please prepare 16-32 bars from a song to sing for auditions. Bring sheet music for the accompanist to play or prepare an accompanying music track to play on your phone while you sing. Also be prepared to perform a cold read from a section of the script (we will have readers on site to read with you). As of right now there is no planned dancing/movement component for this audition date, but that could change.

What to bring: Prepare a resume indicating your previous stage experience and your history with dance and movement. All levels of experience are welcome to audition, and everyone is encouraged to try out! Include your preferred contact information and any major schedule conflicts for the fall. Don’t worry if you’re a student and don’t know your fall class schedule yet, we are mainly looking for out-of-town weekend commitments. If you don’t have any previous experience creating a theatre resume, don’t worry. It can be a simple word document. We just need your information.

Rehearsal Information:

Rehearsals begin the first week of September. The rehearsal calendar will be created around cast availability. If cast, you’ll be required to be at all tech rehearsals and performances with no exceptions.

Performance Information:

When: 7 p.m. Oct. 13-16 and 2 p.m. Oct. 17
