It has been announced that the winner of Best New Musical at the WhatsOnStage Awards 2019 will embark on a UK tour next year.

Following successful runs at London’s The Other Palace and Theatre Royal Haymarket, Laurence O’Keefe and Kevin Murphy’s hit musical adaptation will be heading out on a UK tour next year.

Produced by Bill Kenwright and Paul Taylor-Mills, Heathers the Musical is based on the classic film which starred Winona Ryder and Christian Slater.

Greetings and 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 of popularity 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.

While casting and full tour schedule is yet to be announced, the creative team for the production includes: direction by Andy Fickman, choreography by Thriller Live’s Gary Lloyd, design by David Shields, lighting by Ben Cracknell and sound by Dan Samson.
