Mitchell, S. D. – Dakota Wesleyan University’s Ron and Sheilah Gates Department of Theatre and the Mitchell High School Department of Theatre will present a new musical “Head Over Heels,” March 15-17 and 22-24. The show is based on “The Arcadia” by Sir Philip Sydney; conceived and original book by Jeff Whitty and adapted by James Magruder.

Performances will be held in the DWU Black Box Theatre located within the Dakota Discovery Museum on the DWU campus. Friday and Saturday shows are at 7:30 p.m., with Sunday matinees at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $12 and are available at https://store.dwu.edu/theatre.

Co-directors Melissa Vatter-Miller and Daniel L. Miller bring to life this mash-up of posh and pop rock. Head Over Heels is an unpredictable, medieval romp about a royal family that must prevent an oracle's prophecy of doom. To save their beloved kingdom, the family embarks on an extravagant journey wrought with mistaken identities, jealous lovers, sexual awakening, scandal and self-discovery, where everything (and everyone) is not quite what it seems—all set to the music of the Go-Go’s.
