As if the return of a iconic musical isn’t enough to get us pumped, the star-studded cast includes Christina Bennington (Bat Out Of Hell) in the role of high school geek Veronica Sawyer, Jordan Luke Gage (& Juliet) as the dark and moody teen, Jason Dean (JD), while in the eponymous roles of ‘The Heathers’ is returning cast member Jodie Steele (Six) with her critically acclaimed portrayal of ‘mega bitch’ Heather Chandler, alongside Bobbie Little (Jesus Christ Superstar) as Heather Duke and Frances Mayli McCann (Evita) as Heather McNamara.
