On June 15, Faust Theatre is bringing the dark comedy, “Heathers: The Musical,” to the Arts Asylum through June 25. 

Based on the 1989 cult classic film, “Heathers: The Musical” is a story through the world of teenage angst, cliques, bullying, gun violence, and cruelty.

On opening night, Moms Demand Action provided information and support about advocacy or a safer community.

With music, lyrics and book by Laurence O’Keefe and Kevin Murphy, the production will feature a diverse cast of local Kansas City actors with Faust Theatre founder, Zach Faust, as director, in correspondence to music direction by Adee Dancy and choreography by Regina Lombardo.

“All shows will start at 7:30,” Evie Craig, executive director of Arts Asylum, said. “There is a two o’clock matinee on Sunday as well… The performances next week are Thursday, Friday and Saturday all at 7:30 as well. Tickets are $20 and available on our website.”

This is the first production of this show with this company and theater and Craig encourages “all to come out and see the show and get your tickets as soon as you can.”

Located at 824 Meyer Blvd, Kansas City, Mo., the Arts Asylum is a new 175-seat theater on the growing A to Z Theatrical Campus. Tickets to “Heathers: The Musical” are available at http://www.theartsasylum.org/faust
