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. This laugh-out-loud love story is set to the music of the iconic 1980s all-female rock band the Go-Go’s, including the hit songs “We Got the Beat,” “Our Lips Are Sealed,” “Vacation,” Belinda Carlisle’s “Heaven is a Place on Earth,” and “Mad About You.”

“Head Over Heels” is directed by Mark Cosdon, with choreography by Betsy Getschman and music direction by Wei En Chan. The production features a live band fronted by emeriti professors Jennifer Hellwarth and Joshua Searle-White.
