The 2020 UK tour of Heathers The Musical is set to come to Manchester’s Palace Theatre in October following huge success in London.
Following two record-breaking seasons at London’s The Other Palace and West End transfer to the Theatre Royal Haymarket in 2018, Heathers the Musical, the sassiest show around, will be touring to Brighton, Liverpool, Cardiff, Sheffield, Edinburgh, Milton Keynes, Sunderland, Bristol and Wimbledon, with further dates and venues to be announced in due course.
Based on the cult teen film starring Winona Ryder and Christian Slater, Heathers The Musical is produced by Bill Kenwright and Paul Taylor-Mills.
The award-winning writing team, Laurence O’Keefe and Kevin Murphy’s hit musical adaptation has enjoyed successful runs in Los Angeles and New York, and its West End premiere saw it become the highest grossing show at The Other Palace, before its huge success at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.
The musical is directed by acclaimed American screen and stage director Andy Fickman, with choreography by Thriller Live’s Gary Lloyd, design by David Shields, lighting by Ben Cracknell and sound by Dan Samson.
