Westerberg High is back in class this summer with new songs, new material and new classmates with Heathers the Musical
Produced by Bill Kenwright and Paul Taylor Mills, who produced the award-winning Carrie together in 2015, this musical is one of the most anticipated UK premieres this year, and opens at The Other Palace for a limited run until Saturday, 4th August.
Heathers The Musical is based on the 1988 teen film classic starring 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 arrives in the UK for its European premiere.
Veronica Sawyer is played by Carrie Hope Fletcher who has shown her versatility in stage musicals appearing as Wednesday in The Addams Family, Eponine in Les Miserables and Truly Scrumptious in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. The mysterious JD is played by Jamie Muscato, who is making a return to the Other Palace after appearing there as Story Edward in Big Fish and he has also appeared as Joe in Bend it Like Beckham (Phoenix Theatre), Anthony in Sweeney Todd (Welsh National Opera).
The three Heathers are played by Jodie Steele, T’Shan Williams and Sophie Isaacs. This musical takes us to a place where popularity is life and death, but is it harder to be a nobody or a somebody? To find out and make sure you don’t miss the school bell, head to www.theotherpalace.co.uk
