Jewell Theatre Presents "Head Over Heels: The Musical"


Jewell Theatre Company will present “Head Over Heels: The Musical” at 7 p.m. April 11, 12 and 13 and 2 p.m. on April 14 at Peters Theater in Brown Hall. The musical comedy was adapted from “The Countess of Pembroke’s Arcadia” written by Sir Philip Sidney and features the music of the iconic 1980s all-female rock band The Go-Go’s. Hit songs including “We Got the Beat,” “Our Lips Are Sealed,” “Vacation,” Belinda Carlisle’s “Heaven is a Place on Earth” and “Mad About You” will be featured throughout.

A modern musical fairy tale where once-upon-a-time is right now, it follows the escapades of a royal family who set out on a journey to save their beloved kingdom from extinction. New York Magazine calls it “a clever, delightful, bubbly, exuberant party!”

This show is directed by Sadie Shannon and choreographed by Amber Cordell. The stage is designed by Professor Nathan Wyman, costumes designed by Scotty Wiggins, lighting designed by Kris Kirkwood and technical direction by Derek Trautwein.

Tickets for the performance are $5 for students, $10 for faculty and staff, and $12 for general admission. Tickets can be purchased in the Peters Theater lobby, reserved by calling the box office at 816-415-7590 or online at
