Totally Over You is Revelstoke youth theatre company Flying Arrow Productions‘ second major production, and features a cast and crew of nearly two dozen enthusiastic youth serving in on- and off-stage roles.

The play focuses on the subjects of love, fame and relationships. It follows four teens who, on a lark, form a boy band to get back at their girlfriends, who have just dumped them to pursue fame and celebrity. Totally Over You charts the impact it has on their interpersonal relationships.
