Rover Dramawerks continues their SWEET 16 Season with the winner of their Rover SECONDS Play Contest, the romantic comedy, Heels Over Head by Susan Goodell.
Two total strangers (played by Jeny Siddall and Clint Prentice) have eloped after an ecstatic first meeting at a bungee jump, but neither suspects a future with unbreakable leases, terrifying roommates (Rae Harvill and Kevin Michael Fuld), an internet stalker (Madeleine Morris), an ex-boyfriend (Robert G. Shores), and nomadic bouncing between two extreme households. Per the contest guidelines, this will be the second production anywhere of this quirky comedy; the World Premiere was at Tri State Actors Theater in Newton, New Jersey in 2014.
Frances Seman serves as director with Darcy Koss as Stage Manager. Set and lighting design is by Maxim Overton. Sakura Brunette is costume designer, Danica Bergeron is sound designer, and Samantha Pettigrew is props designer. Choreography is by Cynthia Hale Rose, with video effects by Jeff Smith and Chuck Moore.

- First Friday: Following the show on Friday, July 22, Rover will host their First Friday INSIDERS reception, where patrons can meet the playwright, cast, director, and designers. Tickets for this performance are $32.
