Nathan Amzi has stepped in to join the cast of Heathers The Musical just a few days before opening night, playing Big Bud Dean and Coach Ripper.
Amzi (having previously starred in Disney’s Aladdin, In The Heights) joins the Westerberg High crew until the end of the semester on 24 November.
Nathan explained, “It’s been the fastest rehearsal I’ve ever had to performance, which was only possible with this extraordinary team. When I saw the show as an audience member it blew me away, it’s high-octane fun, full of heart backed by a stellar company. So to join their family is a joy.”
Heathers The Musical is based on the 1988 cult classic teen film, and played a sell-out engagement at The Other Palace this Summer before making the switch to the West End’s Theatre Royal Haymarket.
The show tells the story of Veronica Sawyer, one of the nobodies at a school where popularity is a matter of life and death. But her fortunes are transformed when she’s unexpectedly taken under the wings of three beautiful – and impossibly cruel – Heathers.
Tickets to Heathers The Musical are currently available in person via the TKTS booth.
