If you were a fan of the Heathers film that rocked us all in the 80s, then you’ll be happy to know that it is being transformed into a play for a good cause. Acting Against Cancer, will present Heathers: The 80s Party at Play Dance Bar in Louisville, Kentucky.
“‘Heathers‘ is a bright musical with a dark edge, based on the 1988 film of the same name starring Winona Ryder and Christian Slater,” according to InsiderLouisville.
“The musical keeps the time and setting of the film, and is usually produced with the eye-popping color and sometimes questionable fashion choices of the ’80s. Scrunchies — and who wears them — is an important plot point.”
While the theme is undeniably 80s, the AAC is trying to draw in a younger crowd in the 20’s to 30’s, which is why they have been looking to dance club venues. That being said 80s lovers can still visit the show and see just how much of the movie is actually used.
“But despite a sexier show, AAC still is raising funds to help kids affected by cancer — specifically raising scholarship money so they can attend summer camp with the theater company,” according to the report.
So, years down the line, 80s classics are still being kept alive and in some cases, such as this one, being used for a really incredible cause. To learn more about the AAC and Heathers play, click here.
