Get ready for big fun — the smash hit West End stage show Heathers the Musical is coming to cinemas nationwide, for a one night special event!
Based on the 1989 cult classic film starring Winona Ryder and Christian Slater, and recorded live in its original London home, The Other Palace, this award-winning musical follows Westerberg High student Veronica Sawyer, whose dreams of popularity finally start to come true when she’s taken under the wings of the three beautiful, yet impossibly cruel Heathers. But when mysterious new kid, teen rebel J.D arrives in town, Veronica realises that whilst it might kill to be a nobody, it’s murder being a somebody…
Wickedly funny, with dazzling book, music and lyrics by Tony Award-nominated, Legally Blonde composer, Laurence O’Keefe, and Emmy-winning Reefer Madness author Kevin Murphy, Heathers the Musical is directed by acclaimed screen and stage director Andy Fickman, with electrifying choreography by Thriller Live’s Gary Lloyd. "How very!"
“The narrative is just as good as the original, if not better, due to some tasteful changes implemented for today’s audience and social climate. Taking liberties with the script has enabled the comedy to land better.” — Patrice Witherspoon, ScreenRant
2022. USA. Director: Andy Fickman. Producers: Bill Kenwright, Brett Sullivan. Cast: Ailsa Davidson, Simon Gordon, Maddison Firth, Vivian Panka, Teleri Hughes Duration: 2hrs15mins. Cert: 15.
