BIPOC & LGBTQIA+ ACTORS ENCOURAGED TO AUDITION!

Directed by Dan Harvey (Spartanburg Little Theatre & Tryon Little Theater) and produced by Go-Go’s faniac Sandy Staggs, this laugh-out-loud love story is set to the music of the iconic 1980’s all-female rock band The Go-Go’s (2021 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee), including the hit songs, “We Got the Beat,” “Our Lips Are Sealed,” “Vacation,” and 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.
