Based on the classic 1969 film, the production showcases Westerberg High, a school ruled by a shoulder-padded, scrunchie-wearing clique: Heather, Heather, and Heather—the hottest and cruelest girls in Ohio. Viewers are warned this performance includes intense adult themes and is not appropriate for children. The presentation is made by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., a Concord Theatrical Company.
