Broadway Workshop is proud to the home for developing new musicals for youth performers. Our Workshop Productions allow us to work on musicals in development; from major musicals that are restructured for youth performers or completely new works intended for student and school groups. Our workshops productions are announced as new projects are brought to us that need further work before they can be licensed to schools and theater academies all over the world.
WE ARE THRILLED TO ANNOUNCE THE WORKSHOP PILOT PRODUCTION OF:
HEAD OVER HEELS
Conceived by, Original Book by
School Edition Adapted by Marc Tumminelli
Directed by Marc Tumminelli
Choreographed by Casey Leigh Thompson
Musical Directed by Luke Williams
HEAD OVER HEELS is the bold Broadway 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.”
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. This will be the pilot presentation of the all new SCHOOL EDITION of HEAD OVER HEELS
HEAD OVER HEELS: School Edition will feature ONE cast of high school aged actors and will be presented in workshop style with minimal props and costumes at the Manhattan Movement and Arts Center. This pilot is presented under special arrangement with Broadway Licensing.
