    The smash-hit Heathers The Musical transfers to the West End for 12 weeks only, following a record-breaking sold-out run at The Other Palace. The transfer was announced on stage following last night's performance of the show.

    This hilarious adaptation of the classic 1980s movie features sensational brand-new songs and stars Carrie Hope Fletcher (Les Misérables, Addams Family) as Veronica. Jamie Muscato will also return to play JD. The full cast for the West End production will be announced soon.

    Greetings, salutations. Welcome to Westerberg High, where 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… 

    Based on one of the greatest teen films of all time, the 1988 cult classic starred Winona Ryder and Christian Slater. The award-winning writing team, Laurence O’Keefe (Legally Blonde, Bat Boy) and Kevin Murphy’s (Reefer Madness, Desperate Housewives) hit musical adaptation has enjoyed successful runs in Los Angeles and New York, and finally arrived in the UK for its European premiere on 9 June 2018, following a rapturous response to its 2017 workshop at The Other Palace

    The musical is directed by acclaimed screen and stage director Andy Fickman, with choreography by Gary Lloyd, design by David Shields, lighting by Ben Cracknell, sound by Dan Samson and casting by Will Burton. This is one class production you can’t afford to skip.
