The record-breaking hit musical, Heathers The Musical, is returning to Nottingham as part of a new UK and Ireland tour.

The highly anticipated show is running at the Theatre Royal Nottingham from Tuesday 29 August to Saturday 2 September 2023 at 7:30pm.

The general sale tickets go live at 10am today, Wednesday 18 January, with prices ranging from £17.50 to £44.50.

A spokesperson for the venue said: “We are thrilled the smash-hit musical will be returning to the Theatre Royal Nottingham this year, following a very successful first visit in 2021.

“We’re expecting lots of interest for this fantastic show!”

Based on the 1988 cult teen hit film produced by Bill Kenwright and Paul Taylor-Mills, and starring Winona Ryder and Christian Slater, this high octane, black comedy, rock musical is back with a bang!

The musical adaption has been written by Laurence O’Keefe and Kevin Murphy, where its European premiere saw it become the highest grossing show at The Other Palace, having sold over 20,000 tickets across the run and selling out prior to its opening gala performance. 

With production by Bill Kenwright and Paul Taylor-Mills, direction from Andy Fickman and electrifying choreography by Gary Lloyd, this is an outstanding production you can’t afford to miss.

The age recommendation for the show is 14+.

‘Greetings and salutations! 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 of popularity 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.’
