The European premiere of HEATHERS – THE MUSICAL smashed The Other Palace box office records when it went on sale last week becoming the biggest on-sale in the history of The Other Palace. The musical premieres at The Other Palace on 9 June and runs for a limited 8-week season.

Due to the phenomenal demand, an additional performance and 1,000 extra seats are being released at 10am on Friday 20 April across all price bands, starting from £25. Further tickets will be released each Friday, so check social media and The Other Palace website for more details and your chance to snatch a ticket to the most popular musical this summer!

Following a rapturous response to its sell-out 2017 workshop, 80s cult classic HEATHERS – THE MUSICAL is back in class this summer with new songs, new material and new classmates. Produced by Bill Kenwright and Paul Taylor Mills, who produced the award winning CARRIE together in 2015.

Paul Taylor Mills said: ‘I’m absolutely thrilled that within a year of The Other Palace we have had a project that has gone from a workshop presentation to a fully realised production in the main house. We’re delighted that the appetite for the production has meant we have broken all our previous box office records. We’ve worked really hard to make sure that tickets are available across all price bands and urge people still trying to get tickets to keep an eye on our website and social media channels as we will let everyone know when more allocations of tickets at ALL prices become available.’

Based on one of the greatest teen films of all time, the 1988 classic starred Winona Ryder and Christian Slater. The award-winning writing team, Laurence O’Keefe (Legally Blonde, Bat Boy) and Kevin Murphy’s (Reefer MadnessDesperate Housewives), hit musical adaptation has enjoyed successful runs in Los Angeles and New York, and finally arrives in the UK for its European Premiere.

Accomplished musical theatre star, Carrie Hope Fletcher, will play Veronica Sawyer in this twisted tale of teen drama, friendship and deadly obsession. Fresh from winning the WhatsOnStage Award for ‘Best Actress in a Musical’ for her stint as Wednesday Addams in The Addams Family (UK Tour), Carrie previously played Éponine in Les Misérables in the West End for three years. She has also just released her debut album When the Curtain Falls.

 Greetings, salutations. Welcome to Westerberg High, where popularity is so very a matter of life and death, and 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 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…

Heathers – The Musical features a sensational book, music and lyrics by Kevin Murphy and Laurence O’Keefe, with brand new material exclusively written for this production whilst the team are in London.  The musical is directed by acclaimed screen and stage director Andy Fickman with electrifying choreography by Gary Lloyd (Thriller Live, Carrie, 20th Century Boy), design by David Shields (Chess, Ice Age Live, End of the Rainbow) Lighting by Ben Cracknell (Young Frankenstein, Annie, La Cage Aux Folles)Sound by Dan Samson (Evita, Cilla, Joseph) and casting by Will Burton (Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, Matilda, The Wild Party).
