Heathers: The Musical Breakdown

Veronica Sawyer

Burns both cool and kind, but doesn’t know how to be both at the same time. Fierce sense of right and wrong, keen sense of ironic humor. Thinks she’s an old soul, but she’s still innocent enough to be blindsided by love/hormones (or shocked by cruelty). Must have dynamic and stylistic range.

Age: 17-30 (to play 17)

Vocal range: High belting, up to high G (high AB preferable). 

 

JD

Darkly charismatic, compelling, attractive, charming on the outside yet very damaged on the inside. Keen smarts and strong inventive comedy. 

Age: 17-30 (to play 17)

Vocal range: Strong, confident belt to at least an AB (A preferable).

 

Heather Chandler

Richest, hottest, most magnetic, cruelest girl in town. Relishes power and wields it like a scalpel. No fear, no patience, no mercy. 

Age: 17-30 (to play 17)

Vocal range: Strong belt to D, Eb preferred.

 

Heather McNamara

Beautiful, innocent, stupid, can be mean on command if Heather Chandler orders it, but actually quite vulnerable and fearful

Age: 17-30 (to play 17)

Vocal range: Strong belt to D, Eb preferred.

 

Heather Duke

Whipping-girl of the three Heathers, when she finally becomes Queen Bee she wields power like a bulldozer.

Age: 17-30 (to play 17)

Vocal range: Strong belt to C, D preferred. 

 

Martha Dunstock

Nicknamed “Martha Dumptruck”, is the opposite of confident. Huge and beautiful soul, optimistic even in the face of rejection. Looking for a person of size for this role.

Age: 17-30 (to play 17)

Vocal range: Strong belt to E or F, wide vocal expression.

 

Ram Sweeney 

Linebacker. Big, insensitive to the feelings of others, ruled by appetites. 

Age: 17-30 (to play 17)

Vocal range: Strong baritone, belt to F#, G preferred. Some falsetto useful.

 

Kurt Kelly

Quarterback and Captain. Big, chiseled, rude, entitled, cocky. Mean, thinks he’s the brains in the friendship with Ram. 

Age: 17-30 (to play 17)

Vocal range: Tenor, strong belt to Ab or A, some falsetto.

 

Ram’s Dad

Former football player turned suburban dad who has never outgrown his glory days in high school. Hates weakness, but capable of soul-searching when tragedy strikes. 

Age: 30-45

 

Big Bud Dean

JD’s single dad. Big Jolly personality that barely conceals the enormous rage bubbling just below the surface. Quite possibly a serial bomber. 

Age: 40-55

Vocal range: Baritone/tenor, power country/gospel belt to Ab, higher welcome.

 

Ms. Fleming/Veronica’s Mom

Aging hippie teacher, still yearning for the day Age of Aquarius reaches Ohio. Hungry for the spotlight, resentful of entitled youth. Also plays Veronica’s Mom, who is easygoing, distant, yet capable of laying down the law.
