Directed by Gillian Eichenberger
All roles are open. By audition only.
Given the mature content of this show, actors must be in at least 8th grade or higher and have explicit parent permission to participate.
Heathers tackles serious and sensitive issues: bullying, substance abuse, self-harm, and peer pressure. It also tries to make sense of adolescence, a time when young people are overwhelmed with confusing messaging about their bodies, feelings, as well as their place in family, friends, and society. While Katia & Co. does not condone these subjects, we feel that it is important to provide a safe space and artistic outlet for teenagers to express themselves and discuss the issues that impact their lives.
Actors may choose either date. You only need to attend one day, but should plan to stay for the entire time. See below for audition materials.
Monday, March 9th, 6-8pm in Novato
Tuesday, March 10th, 5-7pm at Hall Middle School.
Tech / Show week:
June 8th-14th at the Playhouse in San Anselmo

HEATHER CHANDLER/VERONICA Scene
JD: Greetings and salutations. Want a slurpee with that?
VERONICA: No, but if you're nice, I will let you buy me a big gulp.
JD: That's like going to Micky D's to order a salad. The slurpee is the signature dish of the house. Did you say cherry or lime?
VERONICA: I said big gulp...I'm Veronica ..by the way. Are you ever going to tell me your name?
JD: I'll end the suspense. I'm Jason Dean. JD for short.
VERONICA: So, JD. That thing you pulled in the caf was pretty severe.
JD: Yeah, well, the extreme always seems to make an impression.
VERONICA: What is a Baudelaire quoting, badass like you doing in Sherwood, Ohio?
JD: My dad's work. He owns a deconstruction company.
JD: Yeah, the old man seems to enjoy tearing things down. You've seen the commercial? My names Big Bud Dean and if it's in the way, I'll make your day. VERONICA: Oh yeah, and then he pushes the plunger and the screen blows up. (She laughs, then realizes her mistake) Oh, that's your dad.
JD: In all his toxic glory.
VERONICA: Yeah, well everybody's life has got static.
VERONICA: Good morning Heather.
HEATHER CHANDLER: Aw Veronica, and Jesse James quelle surprise. Let's get to it. Beg.
VERONICA: Um, ok. I think we both said a lot of things that we didn't really mean last night.
HEATHER CHANDLER: Oh, I would actually prefer you did this on your knees. In front of your boytoy here.
VERONICA: Ok, anyways. I'm really sorry.
HEATHER CHANDLER: Do I look like I'm kidding, ha ha. Down.
VERONICA looks at JD who turns away as she kneels before HEATHER CHANDLER.
HEATHER CHANDLER: (CONT'D) That's better, but you're still dead to me.
MARTHA: We still on for movie night?
VERONICA: Yeah, you're on Jiffy Pop detail.
MARTHA: I rented the Princess Bride!
VERONICA: Again? Don't you have it memorized by now?
MARTHA: What can I say? I'm a sucker for a happy ending.
ONE WEEK LATER
MARTHA: Hey Veronica!
MARTHA: You really do look beautiful these days.
VERONICA: Yeah, well, it's still the same me, underneath.
MARTHA: Are you sure?
VERONICA: Look, I'm sorry I flaked on movie night last week. I just have a lot going on.
MARTHA: I get that, you're with the Heathers now. That's exciting.
VERONICA: It's whatever, but we'll hang soon I promise!
