Head Over Heels
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 licensed version is based upon the Original 2018 Broadway production.
This show is orchestrated to be player-conducted from the Keyboard/Conductor book. There is just this single keyboard book in the show.
The Keyboard/Conductor book is primarily acoustic and electric pianos but is pretty densely programmed with close to 200 unique patch changes throughout the show. Some of these other sounds include B3 organ, strings, harp, Cathedral organ, synth pads, percussion, accordion, and even sitar to name a few. This book requires an advanced player who can navigate the part and the programming while leading the band.

Head Over Heels is the bold new musical comedy from the visionaries that rocked Broadway with Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Avenue Q and Spring Awakening. This laugh-out-loud 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.”
