Based on the cult film of the same name, Heathers features music, lyrics and a book by Laurence O’Keefe and Kevin Murphy.

Directed by Andy Fickman, the show features choreography and associate direction by Gary Lloyd, design by David Shields, lighting by Ben Cracknell and sound by Dan Samson.

The show is also set to embark on an extensive UK and Ireland tour, featuring a brand new cast.
