The new West End cast of Heathers the musical in the West End has been announced!

The hit show will be back at London’s Theatre Royal Haymarket this summer for a limited run between 21 June and 13 September with tickets on sale now here.

Heathers the Musical is based on the cult 1980s film of the same name which starred Winona Ryder and Christian Slater.

The Heathers will be played by Jodie Steele (Heather Chandler), Bobbie Little (Heather Duke) and Frances Mayli McCann (Heather McNamara).

Also the cast are Lauren Ward (Miss Fleming/Veronica’s Mother), Madison Swan (Martha), Simon Bailey (Ram’s Dad/Big Bud Dean/Coach), Joaquin Pedro Valdes (Ram Sweeney) and Steven Serlin (Kurt’s Dad/Veronica’s Dad/Principle Gowan).

Alongside the new run in London, a first ever Heathers the musical tour is to open at the Leeds Grand Theatre in July.

The show tells the story of high school student Veronica Sawyer who, longing for popularity, finds herself drawn to three beautiful and impossibly cruel Heathers. The plot takes a dark twist when the mysterious JD turns up, teaching Veronica that it might kill to be a nobody, but it’s murder being a somebody.

An West End casting recording is available here featuring the original London cast including Carrie Hope Fletcher, Jodie Steele, Jamie Muscato and Sophie Isaacs.
