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.

An original script created to investigate the innovations available to virtual theatre, INTO THE WIND explores unlikely connections and the overcoming power of love in impossible situations: How can the sun fall in love with the moon when they can never be together? When even the Stars above conspire with the great Parliament of Owls to separate Fate and Time, can their love be more than a howl in the wind? In this time where connection is the highest commodity, we wager the bet on love having the last word and being the final judge and jury above all.
