Sarasota, FL – June 7, 2019 – The Players Centre for Performing Arts is thrilled to be performing the area premier of the new Go-Gos musical HEAD OVER HEELS. HEAD OVER HEELS is the bold new musical comedy from the visionaries that rocked Broadway with Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Avenue Q and Spring Awakening. This laugh-out-loud love story is set to the music of the iconic 1980’s all-female rock band The Go-Go’s, including the hit songs, “We Got the Beat,” “Our Lips Are Sealed,” “Vacation,” Belinda Carlisle’s “Heaven is a Place on Earth” and “Mad About You.”
Story: A hilarious, exuberant celebration of love, HEAD OVER HEELS follows the escapades of a royal family on an outrageous journey to save their beloved kingdom from extinction—only to discover the key to their realm’s survival lies within each of their own hearts.
“Rarely do I get as excited for a project than I am with this incredible announcement. As a community theatre, it is often years before a show that closes on Broadway becomes available to us. It is a huge honor to be given the opportunity to share this production that is not only chock full of exciting music, but also pulses with a heart-filled message of tolerance and inclusiveness,” said Artistic Managing Director Jeffery Kin. “Me and the creative team are already planning on how to bring this Go-Go infused musical to our audiences and prove to the community that…We got the beat!”
Auditions will be held on Nov. 9, 2019 from 10am-4pm. Those interested will also be seen for SISTER ACT and ANYTHING GOES. HEAD OVER HEELS will be directed by Brian Finnerty with musical direction by Michelle Kasanofsky.
