80s cult classic Heathers – The Musical is back in class this summer, making its European premiere with a brand new band – and lead star Carrie Hope Fletcher (who’s playing Veronica Sawyer) met up with them at the home of the new production, The Other Palace.

Musical director Simona Budd will lead five sensational musicians in performing Olivier Award winner Laurence O’Keefe’s kick -ass score: Becky Brass (Our Ladies Of Perpetual Succour) on Drums; Robyn Brown on Bass; Roseanne Duckworth (Wicked, Les Misérables) on Trumpet; Emily Linden (Our Ladies Of Perpetual Succour) on Guitar; and Katie Punter (La Cage Aux Folles, Sister Act) on Reeds.

Between them, the exceptional house band features some of the most experienced talent around, as well as some exciting up and coming musicians, from hit West End and touring productions.

Carrie Hope Fletcher said: “I am beyond thrilled to get to sing each night alongside such a fierce group of musicians and love the fact that this will be the first ever all female band at The Other Palace. Look out Westerberg High; this girl band is going to bring the house down this summer”.

Heathers The Musical at The Other Palace

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. Based on one of the greatest teen films of all time, the 1988 classic Heathers starring Winona Ryder and Christian Slater, this hit musical adaptation has enjoyed successful runs in Los Angeles and New York, and finally arrives in the UK for its European Premiere.

Produced by Bill Kenwright and Paul Taylor Mills, who produced the award winning Carrie together in 2015, the musical premieres at The Other Palace from 9 June, and runs for a limited 8 week season.

Tickets are available through The Other Palace website.
