Casting for the West End run is to be confirmed.

Danny Cohen, President of Access Entertainment, said: “We are keen to get the doors of the Theatre Royal Haymarket open as soon as possible.

“The energy of a sold-out performance in front of a live audience is like nothing else and we are delighted to be partnering with Bill Kenwright to achieve that on the very first day the government allows.”

Heathers previously ran at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in 2018 with a cast featuring Carrie Hope Fletcher, Jodie Steele, Jamie Muscato and Sophie Isaacs.

Together with the West End run, Heathers will tour the UK from July, opening at Leeds Grand Theatre.

The show will then head across the country with confirmed runs in Liverpool, Nottingham, Newcastle, Sheffield, Birmingham, Canterbury, Bristol, Belfast, Dublin, Manchester, Milton Keynes, High Wycombe, Cardiff and Edinburgh.

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 its recent West End run starring Carrie Hope Fletcher.

It tells the story of high school student Veronica Sawyer who, long for popularity, finds herself taken under the wings of three beautiful and impossibly cruel Heathers. The plot takes a dark twist when the mysterious JD turns up, teaching Veronica that it might kill to be a nobody, but it’s murder being a somebody.
