"No matter where you go, here you are..."

When Renaissance meets Rock & Roll, the most unforeseeable things can and doth happen! Head Over Heels is an unpredictable, frolicsome tale about a royal family that embarks on a quest to prevent an oracles' prediction of their downfall. Their pilgrimage is filled with mistaken identities, jealous lovers, sexual awakening, scandal, and self-discovery, where everything (and everyone) is not quite what it seems. This jovial love story is set to the music of the iconic 1980’s 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.”Produced by special arrangement with Broadway Licensing.

CASTING BREAKDOWN

BASILIUS – King of Arcadia. A sexy, good old boy. A hothead, but not a despot. Blindly thinks Arcadia is doing great under his masculine rule, which will be sorely tested during the course of the show. Male Identifying. Vocal Range: Tenor

GYNECIA – Queen of Arcadia. Sexy, wise, beautiful. Like any longstanding spouse, she knows how to get her way with her husband when push comes to shove. Female Identifying. Vocal Range: Alto

PAMELA – Basilius and Gynecia's older daughter. Confident and obsessed with her appearance. Known to be the most beautiful bachelorette throughout Arcadia. Queer Femme Identifying. Vocal Range Mezzo-Soprano with belt.

PHILOCLEA – Basilius and Gynecia's younger daughter. Shy and a "good girl," she yearns to follow her heart rather than obey her father's orders. Female Identifying. Vocal Range: Soprano with belt.

DAMETAS – The King’s viceroy; father to Mopsa. Male Identifying. Vocal Range Tenor, Baritone, Bass

MOPSA – Handmaiden to Pamela. Warm, skeptical. Growing up without a mother has made her wise beyond her years about everyone and everything, which is why she is the (sometimes) narrator of the show. Queer Femme Identifying. Vocal Range: Mezzo-Soprano with belt.

MUSIDORUS – A young shepherd who courts after Philoclea. A very offbeat hero who is great with physical comedy. Male Identifying Vocal Range: Tenor

PYTHIO – The Oracle; powerful, mysterious. Demanding. Great sense of humor--can see through everyone--they are the Oracle of Delphi, after all. Non-Binary Vocal Range: Alto or high Tenor

ENSEMBLE – Unique, charismatic individuals that inhabit the kingdom of Arcadia. Great Dancers. Vocal Range: All
