Heathers: The Musical

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.

  
The character of newly appointed Heather groupie Veronica intensifies when the dangerous hot-to-trot new kid J.D locks his eyes with hers.

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.
