Heathers: The Musical is a hilarious Mean Girls meets High School Musical performance with a dark and delicious twist that nobody expects.
Set at cliche Westerberg High, the ridiculed Veronica Sawyer, performed by Jaz Flowers, tries desperately to join the popular girls – the three Heathers.
What she doesn’t know is that her desperation to belong will be at the price of her classmates.
Based on 1988 cult film Heathers, Heathers: The Musical mixes rock, pop, fluro’s and a stream of hilarious anecdotes with serious issues in current society and a few high school revenge pranks that go horribly wrong.
The thrilling rock musical has a spine tingling edge and a lesson to learn with its approach to school bullying, teen sexuality, campus shootings, suicide attempts and bomb threats.
Heathers: The Musical takes an interesting view on life at seventeen with a fabulous cast that will take you from highs to lows in a high school rollarcoaster.
