Heathers the Musical  by Kevin Murphy and Laurence O'Keefe | Directed by Rachel Pospisil

Cowell Theater, Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture

Industry Night: Friday, July 5, 2019

Opening Night: Saturday, July 6, 2019

Fresh off of a wildly successful run in London’s West End, Heathers continues to cue the Corn Nuts. Based on the cult classic 1989 film, this darkly delicious satire is a rowdy, guilty-pleasure musical which takes an unflinching look at the joy and anguish of high school. Westerberg High is ruled by a shoulder-padded, scrunchie-wearing posse: Heather, Heather, and Heather, the hottest and cruelest girls in all of Ohio. Misfit Veronica Sawyer, who hustles her way into this teenage power trifecta, discovers that life in the Teflon crowd isn’t all that it seems. All bets are off when a darkly delicious stranger, JD, plans to put the Heathers in their place — six feet under.


Stupid Fucking Bird  by Aaron Posner | Directed by Acadia Barrengos

Aug 1-11, 2019. 10 performances

Southside Theater, Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture

Industry Night: Thursday, August 1, 2019

Opening Night: Friday, August 2, 2019

In award-winning playwright’s Aaron Posner’s ‘sort of’ adaptation of Chekhov’s The Seagull, an aspiring young director rampages against the art created by his mother’s generation. A nubile young actress wrestles with an aging Hollywood star for the affections of a renowned novelist. And everyone discovers just how disappointing love, art, and growing up can be. In this irreverent, contemporary, and very funny remix, Aaron Posner stages a timeless battle between young and old, past and present, in search of the true meaning of it all. Original songs composed by James Sugg draw the famously sub-textual inner thoughts of Chekhov’s characters explicitly to the surface. Stupid Fucking Bird will tickle, tantalize, and incite you to consider how art, love, and revolution fuel your own pursuit of happiness.


Both shows have mature content and are not recommended for children under the age of 13.
