She befriends the most popular clique in school, the ‘Heathers,’ and juxtaposes this relationship with her troubled love interest, Jason “J.D.” Dean, whose twisted take on high school survival spirals out of control.

أخبار The satirical undertones and comedic breaks of the crude-humored musical — particularly one noteworthy, racy and fervent sex scene –– captivate and engage the audience from beginning to end and highlight the artistic talents of the cast and crew. The musical’s key to success was that it centered around caricaturization of jocks, popular cliques, pseudo-psychotic guys who pass for ‘mysterious’ and educational institutions mishandling serious issues, namely depression and suicide.

Schneider hooked the audience every time she broke the fourth wall with her frank asides and successfully executed numbers. Nick D’Apice, who plays antagonist J.D., also delivers a strong performance –– complete with slow motion cafeteria fight scenes and convincing psychotic and obsessive episodes –– and skillfully acts alongside Schneider and other talented co-stars like Kaylee Spano, who plays Heather Chandler.

Standout scenes included J.D. revealing his plan to blow up the high school gym, where a harsh, glaring red light falls on him, complemented by the change in music that adds an exhilarating rush to the atmosphere of the culminating scene.

Their sweat and time resulted in yet another successful fall mainstage production.
