Heathers the Musical is heading on a UK & Ireland Tour in 2020 – here’s all you need to know.
Heathers the Musical is based on the cult 1980s film of the same name which starred Winona Ryder and Christian Slater.
With music and lyrics by Laurence O’Keefe and Kevin Murphy, the adaption has had productions across the world including a recent West End run starring Carrie Hope Fletcher.
Produced by Bill Kenwright and Paul Taylor-Mills, the musical is now embarking on its first UK tour for 2020 with dates and cast to be confirmed in due course.
A synopsis for the show teases: “Greetings and salutations! Welcome to Westerberg High, where popularity is so very a matter of life and death, and Veronica Sawyer is just another of the nobodies dreaming of a better day.
“But when she’s unexpectedly taken under the wings of the three beautiful and impossibly cruel Heathers, her dreams of popularity finally start to come true.
“Until JD turns up, the mysterious teen rebel who teaches her that it might kill to be a nobody, but it’s murder being a somebody.”
The musical is directed by acclaimed American screen and stage director Andy Fickman, with choreography by Thriller Live’s Gary Lloyd, design by David Shields, lighting by Ben Cracknell and sound by Dan Samson.
