Talented band announced for Heathers The Musical at The Other Palace

Heathers The Musical - The Other Palace

Earlier this year we heard that another high profile film would be getting the stage musical treatment in London as Heathers – a 1988 movie starring Christian Slater and Winona Ryder – heads to The Other Palace with a new cast and some memorable songs.

We already know that Carrie Hope Fletcher will be playing the part of Veronica Sawyer – the role originally inhabited by Winona Ryder onscreen – and that Andy Fickman will be directing a musical from Kevin Murphy and Laurence O’Keefe, but now we have also gotten word on other key players for the upcoming production.

These new players make up a girl band that will be performing the score from O’Keefe and they take the forms of Becky Brass, Robyn Brown, Roseanne Duckworth, Emily Linden and Katie Punter. All are experienced performers from a range of musical shows.

Heathers forms a darkly comic story that follows Westerberg High student Veronica Sawyer as she meets the bad boy sociopath by the name of J.D. and together they come up with a horrifying and sadistic plan to destroy a clique and make a name for herself.

In a new press release with the latest announcement, Carrie Hope Fletcher commented on appearing alongside a troupe of performers, saying “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”.

Prior to Heathers The Musical, The Other Palace also welcomes Kathleen Turner: Finding My Voice in May 2018, with the Hollywood veteran providing a valuable insight into her lige and career. The venue also welcomes Hot Gay Time Machine in May and Eugenius! later in the year, so audiences have plenty of options during 2018 as a range of different shows open their doors.

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