A Philadelphia Professional Premiere!

Songs by The Go-Go’s
Based upon The Arcadia by Sir Philip Sidney
Conceived by & Original Book by Jeff Whitty
Adapted by James Magruder

Associate Honorary Producers
Sid & Ruth Rosenblatt

An oracle prophesizes that the kingdom of Arcadia will soon lose its “Beat”—the mysterious, divine force that has allowed for Arcadia’s ongoing peace and prosperity. Join the royal family and their servants in this hilarious, queer musical comedy as they attempt to save their kingdom…and find love and self-acceptance along the way. Head Over Heels will have audiences tapping their heels and jamming out to iconic hits like “We Got the Beat,” “Vacation,” “Our Lips Are Sealed,” and “Heaven Is a Place on Earth” made famous by The Go-Go’s—the most successful all-female-identifying rock band of all time.

Content Note: Head Over Heels is an unapologetic celebration of queer joy in all its forms. This production contains strong language, comedic sexual activity, light violence, and technical elements that include haze, strobe lights, and a reflective disco ball. Also, we’re warning you now, it has a soundtrack so catchy you’ll be humming it for days. Recommended for ages 13 and up.
