Amzi said: “I have loved jumping in becoming a part of this incredibly talented company! They are a true theatre family from the producers, creatives, cast, through every department. 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.”

Welcome to Westerberg High, where popularity is so very a matter of life and death, and Veronica Sawyer is just another of the nobodies dreaming of a better day. But when she’s unexpectedly taken under the wings of the three beautiful and impossibly cruel Heathers, her dreams finally start to come true.

Until JD turns up, the mysterious teen rebel who teaches her that it might kill to be a nobody, but it’s murder being a somebody…

Based on one of the greatest teen films of all time, the 1988 cult classic starred Winona Ryder and Christian Slater. It has been adapted for stage by award-winning writing team Laurence O’Keefe (Legally Blonde, Bat Boy) and Kevin Murphy’s (Reefer Madness, Desperate Housewives).

Produced by Bill Kenwright and Paul Taylor Mills, Heathers The Musical is directed by acclaimed screen and stage director Andy Fickman, with choreography by Gary Lloyd, design by David Shields, lighting by Ben Cracknell, sound by Dan Samson and casting by Will Burton.
