Following its European premiere at The Other Palace in Westminster in June, Heathers - The Musical will transfer to the West End this September for a 12 week run.

The musical, following the lives of students from Westerberg High, will be transferring to the Theatre Royal Haymarket from 3rd September, with Carrie Hope Fletcher reprising her role as Veronica Sawyer.

The musical is based on the 1988 cult classic Heathers, which starred Winona Ryder and Christian Slater. The show is set in Westerberg High School, where popularity is a matter of life and death.

Carrie Hope Fletcher plays Veronica, who is a high school nobody. 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 mysterious teen rebel JD turns up. 

The writing team comprises Laurence O’Keefe (Legally Blonde, Bat Boy) and Kevin Murphy’s (Reefer Madness, Desperate Housewives). The musical adaptation has enjoyed successful runs in Los Angeles and New York, and finally arrived in the UK for its European premiere on 9th June 2018.

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 of Heathers - The Musical will be announced in due course.

Heathers – The Musical is said to be the highest grossing show at Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Other Palace and in St. James’ history having sold over 20,000 tickets across the initial run.

It is reportedly 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.

Group rates at the Theatre Royal Haymarket are available for parties of ten or more people.
