General Audition Information

The Red Phoenix Theatre Company is thrilled to announce auditions for their summer production of Heathers The High School Edition. This show is intended for high school and collegiate age performers. This edition of the script has been modified to be more appropriate for student performers, but the heart and message of the show is unchanged. Please review the script on the Sam French website prior to auditioning to ensure you are familiar and comfortable with the content. 

Heathers The Musical (High School Edition) is the darkly delicious story of Veronica Sawyer, a brainy, beautiful teenage misfit who hustles her way into the most powerful and ruthless clique at Westerberg High: the Heathers. But before she can get comfortable atop the high school food chain, Veronica falls in love with the dangerously handsome new kid J.D. When Heather Chandler, the Almighty, kicks her out of the group, Veronica decides to bite the bullet and kiss Heather’s aerobicized butt... but J.D. has another plan for that bullet.

Auditions for this production are available by appointment only on March 27 & March 28 from 6-9. Callbacks will be March 31 from 5-9pm. Please prepare a verse and a chorus of a song for your general audition. Please bring accompaniment on a cd or saved on an electronic device. Please do not rely on YouTube for your accompaniment, and do not bring a track with lead vocals on it. 

Rehearsals will take place June 12 - 28th. Performances will take place June 29 - July 2 at the Buford Community Theatre. For questions regarding our summer program, please contact Eric Bragg at embragg@redphoenix.org. There is a $385 performance fee associated with this educational production. Please make sure to review all roles in the show and the production calendar prior to signing up for auditions.  Audition slots tend to fill quickly, so do not delay in booking your time.


Audition Day Specifics

1.) Auditions and rehearsals will take place at 2855 Rolling Pin Lane Suwanee, GA 30024. Try to arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled audition time. We want to make sure that the process is as smooth and efficient as possible. Your prompt attendance will greatly expedite the audition process. 

2.) We request that you take a moment with your family to discuss the roles that you will and will not be willing to accept in our production. Competition for these roles will be fierce. We want to ensure that every person that is cast, is placed in a role that he/she WILL accept. Please note that if you ultimately decline a role that you state you will accept on the audition form, it can impact future casting with Red Phoenix. Be sure to review all roles that you are willing to commit to prior to completing your audition form. In addition, please ensure parents have reviewed the content of the show prior to your audition. The production contract for this title will state that parents have reviewed and are comfortable with all of the content. 

3.) Please make sure that you bring instrumental only accompaniment (no vocals) on a CD or saved as a track on your mobile device. Please do NOT rely on YouTube for your accompaniment or attempt to sing a cappella. 

4.) We will only be looking at vocal performances at the general audition. We encourage everyone to PERFORM the song at auditions. Show us that you can communicate a character to an audience through your song. 

5.) If you need to cancel or reschedule your audition, please contact Red Phoenix as quickly as possible. If you are unable to be physically at auditions due to a scheduling conflict, please contact Red Phoenix at embragg@redphoenix.org as quickly as possible for audition alternatives.
