January 5 – 14, 2018, Friday and Saturday at 8:00 pm, Saturday and Sunday at 2:00pm and one Thursday performance on January 11 at 8:00 at the Hillcrest Center for the Arts, 403 West Hillcrest Drive in Thousand Oaks.  Directed by Timothy Reese with Musical Direction by Tyler Stouffer and Choreography by Sarah Fanella.  This musical is for Mature Audiences.  No one under 17 will be admitted without a parent or guardian.

Based on the classic 1989 film, Westerberg High is ruled by a shoulder-padded, scrunchie-wearing junta: Heather, Heather, and Heather, the hottest and cruelest girls in all of Ohio. But misfit Veronica Sawyer rejects their evil regime for a new boyfriend, the dark and sexy stranger J.D., who plans to put the Heathers in their place – six feet under.  HEATHERS THE MUSICAL is presented through special arrangement with Samuel French, INC.

YA4Ever is a talented and generous group of Young Artists Ensemble Alumni and Friends who gather to donate their time and talents for the presentations of fun musical productions. Recent productions have included “Avenue Q”, “Spring Awakening”, “Into the Woods”, “Godspell”, “Rent”, “The Last Five Years” starring Veronica Dunne, “Urinetown”, and “The Rocky Horror Show”.  These productions are created to support the performing arts and raise money for Young Artists Ensemble, while giving YAE alumni a chance to come back to perform in the place where they first began to develop their craft and deepen their love for the theatre. 

Young Artists Ensemble is an award-winning theatre company for young people that has received many accolades, including the Excellence in the Arts Award for Arts Education from the City of Thousand Oaks.  It has received top honors in the National Youth Arts Awards for many of its Teen Summer Musicals and its Conejo Theatre For Everyone. 

When the Young Artists Ensemble started in 1981 it was a small group performing on a shoestring budget in the back room of a local park. Today it produces an annual Family Theatre Season as well as annual Teen Dramas and Teen Summer Musicals. YAE works to instill a seed of love for the arts in the youth of this community that will continue to grow and blossom throughout their lives. Yearly it provides opportunities for hundreds of kids between the ages of 10 and 19 to perform in well-known musicals and plays, and hosts an annual program that integrates developmentally delayed adults into the theatrical community.
