Carrie Hope Fletcher meets Westerberg High's newest girl band for Heathers - The Musical

Carrie Hope Fletcher and The Band.

AFTER breaking previous box office records at The Other Palace, the European premiere of Heathers – The Musical has announced its girl band.

Led by Musical Director Simona Budd, it will be made up of musicians from hit West End and touring productions. They are:

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 Follies, Sister Act, Shrek The Musical) on Reeds.

Carrie Hope Fletcher, who plays Veronica Sawyer in this twisted tale of teen drama, friendship and deadly obsession, 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 is based on one of the greatest teen films of all time, the 1988 classic which starred Winona Ryder and Christian Slater. The stage adaptation by award-winning writing team Laurence O’Keefe (Legally Blonde, Bat Boy) and Kevin Murphy’s (Reefer Madness, Desperate Housewives) has already enjoyed successful runs in Los Angeles and New York.

Heathers – The Musical runs at The Other Palace from June 9 to August 4, 2018.
