Preview - Heathers The Musical

Coming back to the North East this June - miss it and you'll be out of the cool kids gang.

Following its multiple West End runs, and continuing success at its home – The Other Palace, Heathers the Musical will embark on its highly anticipated UK and Ireland tour from 14 February 2023. The production will visit Sunderland Empire from 20-24 June 2023. Full dates and venues can be found at

Welcome to Westerberg High where Veronica Sawyer is just another nobody dreaming of a better day. But when she joins the beautiful and impossibly cruel Heathers and her dreams of popularity may finally come true, mysterious teen rebel JD teaches her that it might kill to be a nobody, but it is murder being a somebody…

The award-winning writing team, Laurence O’Keefe and Kevin Murphy’s hit musical adaptation has enjoyed successful runs in Los Angeles and New York, and its European premiere saw it become the highest grossing show at The Other Palace, having sold over 20,000 tickets across the run and selling out prior to its opening gala performance. It had a similar success on transferring to the Theatre Royal Haymarket. The smash-hit return engagement at The Other Palace under Bill Kenwright continues to excite and delight audiences.

Making it beautiful in blue, Jenna Innes (Les Miserables) takes on the role of angst-ridden teen, Veronica Sawyer, and returning to the role of Jason ‘J.D’ Dean is Jacob Fowler (Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella).

The Westerberg tour class of 2023 is completed by Verity Thompson (Cinderella) as Heather Chandler, Elise Zavou (Fantastically Great Women Who Changed the World) as Heather Duke, Billie Bowman (Heathers–The Other Palace)as Heather Macnamara and Kingsley Morton (The Addams Family) as Martha Dunnstock.

The rest of the cast lists as a who's who from modern smash hit musicals including Mamma Mia, We Will Rock You, Book of Mormon, Rocky Horror Show, Grease and Motown.

Directed by acclaimed American screen and stage director Andy Fickman, with choreography by Thriller Live’s Gary Lloyd, design by David Shields, lighting by Ben Cracknell, musical direction by Will Joy and sound by Dan Samson.
