In 1830’s Kentucky, a Christian sect known as the Shakers live together in a simple and uniform society that emphasizes piety and equality. But when a newcomer arrives claiming to see angels in the nearby meadow, she quickly threatens to tear their utopia apart, separating the people who believe in her visions from those who do not. A play with beautiful a capella songs and rhythmic dance, As It Is In Heaven asks us what it truly means to be a believer.

Westerberg High is ruled by a shoulder-padded, scrunchie-wearing clique: 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. A hilarious, heartfelt, and homicidal musical based on the 1989 movie.
