Heathers The Musical - Haymarket
Don't miss Heathers The Musical at it transfers to the West End from 3 September for 12 weeks only at the Theatre Royal Haymarket following a record breaking sold-out run at The Other Palace. This hilarious adaptation of the classic 1980s movie features sensational brand-new songs and stars Carrie Hope Fletcher (Les Miserables, Addams Family Tour) as Veronica.

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...

Wickedly funny and with dazzling book, music and lyrics by Kevin Murphy and Laurence O'Keefe, HEATHERS THE MUSICAL is based on the 1988 cult hit, that starred Winona Ryder and Christian Slater, and produced by Bill Kenwright and Paul Taylor-Mills, the team behind the acclaimed stage adaptation of Carrie. With direction from Andy Fickman and electrifying choreography by Gary Lloyd, this is one class production you can't afford to skip.

FINAL CASTING AND BRAND NEW SONG ANNOUNCED FOR HEATHERS THE MUSICAL (21 AUGUST 2018)

The creative team behind Heathers the Musical has announced a brand new song has been written into the show ahead of its West End debut at the Theatre Royal Haymarket (3 September to 24 November 2018), along with multiple re-workings to the script.

Following extensive work across the run of its European premiere at The Other Palace, the creators of Heathers - The Musical, Laurence O'Keefe and Kevin Murphy, alongside director Andy Fickman, have written an original new song for leading lady Carrie Hope Fletcher. The new song, 'I Say No' and updated script were added into the final week of performances at The Other Palace, offering audiences a sneak peek ahead of the show's transfer to the West End in September.

Paul Taylor Mills said:
"Two years ago Andrew Lloyd Webber and I set on a mission to create a space in the UK where musicals could be tried and tested with audience feedback at the heart of that development. I am so pleased to say that a year and a half later we have been able to see Heathers go from The Other Palace studio, to the main house, to the West End. This isn't a new idea with many major American musicals affording themselves an out-of-town try out in order to refine the material before the version the team want to present is 'cooked'!
"Over the last few weeks the creative team and I have been working hard to make changes to the production, including a new number for Veronica at the end of the show, and some script changes to Act II. We're delighted with the work that has been done and that the show was able to finish its the run at The Other Palace as the definitive version of Heathers."

Joining Carrie Hope Fletcher, reprising her role as Veronica Sawyer, and returning to the cast as the school's reigning 'It Girls’' - The Heathers are Jodie Steele (Chandler), T'Shan Williams (Duke) and Sophie Isaacs (McNamara), alongside Jamie Muscato as rebellious transfer student Jason Dean (JD), Chris Chung (Kurt Kelly), Dominic Anderson (Ram Sweeney), Jenny O'Leary (Martha Dunnstock), Rebecca Lock (Ms. Flemming), Jon Boydon (Kurt’s Dad), Alex James Hatton (Officer Milner), Charlotte Jaconelli (Stoner Chick), Lauren Drew (New Wave Girl), Olivia Moore (Young Rerepublicanette), and Sergio Pasquariello (Officer McCord).

They will be welcoming Hugh Maynard (Ram's Dad), John Lumsen (Hipster Dork) and Merryl Ansah (Drama Cub Drama Queen) to the cast for the West End premiere.



HEATHERS STARRING CARRIE HOPE FLETCHER TRANSFERS TO LONDON'S WEST END (5 JULY 2018)

After smashing all box office records with its European premiere at The Other Palace, the sold-out production of Heathers - The Musical will make its highly anticipated West End transfer this Autumn. The 2018 Class of Westerberg High will be graduating to the Theatre Royal Haymarket for a strictly limited 12-week run, from 3 September 2018, with Carrie Hope Fletcher reprising her role as Veronica Sawyer.

Heathers - The Musical is now the highest grossing show at Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Other Palace and St. James' history having sold over 20,000 tickets across the run and having sold out prior to its opening gala performance. It is the first show in the theatre's history to move from a studio workshop to a main house production and it now becomes The Other Palace's first West End transfer, having reached a brand new audience; 70% of which are under the age of 30.

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. The full cast will be announced in due course.
