Heathers The Musical (Dramatic Productions)

Dramatic Productions astoundingly exciting major musical Heathers was held from 12th to 27th October at the Gungahlin Theatre. the high energy, fun and funny – Heathers.

Heathers is based on the 80’s movie of the same name, that starred Winona Ryder and Christian Slater. The musical adaptation, while light-hearted, also touched on the serious issues of bullying and violence in schools. Heathers the Musical is a supercharged laugh-out-loud, rock musical about the students of Westerberg High, as they navigate raging hormones, bullying from jocks, scorn from the popular girls, all the while just trying to stay alive!’

It was a wonderfully entertaining show, filled with high energy, humour and phenomenal talent. The cast really was incredible, just 18 of them in total, many playing numerous roles, all volunteers and all possessing the highest and most amazing and professional standard of ability.

Richard and the team from Dramatic Productions wanted to make a Dramatic Difference in the Community and selected twelve Charity Groups that would receive 10% of all ticket sales on the evening of the show that was assigned to them. Then the incredible Steve from Masonicare came onboard matching all donations.

The Dainere’s Rainbow Show was on 20th October, we would like to express our gratitude to all those who attended the show which was almost a full house and was the most responsive audience which the cast were absolutely thrilled about.

A presentation took place on November 20th for all the twelve local Charities and Organisations that had been selected to support, we are just so absolutely humbled to announce that Dainere’s Rainbow received $1747.50. This will go a long way in supporting a current research project being undertaken by the incredible Associate Professor David Ziegler at the Sydney Children’s Hospital, Kids Cancer Centre.
