‘Heathers The Musical’
7:30 p.m. Friday through Sunday. St. Lawrence Arts Center, 76 Congress St., Portland, $13 in advance, $17 at the door, $11 in advance for seniors and students, $15 at the door. stlawrencearts.org
Based on the 1989 cult film “Heathers,” “Heathers The Musical” tells the sordid tale of high school angst and power struggles gone wild. With one character named Veronica and three named Heather, the story unfolds in grim, bloody fashion through musical numbers like “Big Fun,” “Candy Store” and “Lifeboat.” A true black comedy, “Heathers The Musical” brings the laughs but does so with strong language and mature themes and is likely not ideal for the younger set.

He’s a state treasure when it comes to laughs so don’t miss your chance to see Tim Sample live in Harrison. Sample’s got the market cornered when it comes to Down East humor and has released a dozen albums of it over the years. He’s also penned as many books, including “Saturday night at Moody’s Diner” and “How to Talk Yankee.” You can expect the evening to be an enchanting hoot. Ayuh!
