Kaleidoscope Entertainment today announced that the stage recording of the award-winning West End hit Heathers: The Musical will be coming to cinemas nationwide for a one-night-only special event on 28th March.
Based on the 1989 cult classic film starring Winona Ryder and Christian Slater, the musical adaptation follows Westerberg High student Veronica Sawyer, whose dreams of popularity finally start to come true when she’s taken under the wings of the three beautiful yet impossibly cruel Heathers. But when mysterious new kid, teen rebel J.D arrives in town, Veronica realises that whilst it might kill to be a nobody, it’s murder being a somebody…
Fans of the musical are in for some Big Fun as the live recording, captured in its original London home, The Other Palace, features some of the incredible 2022 cast, including musical star Ailsa Davidson as Veronica Sawyer, Simon Gordon as J.D., Maddison Firth as Heather Chandler, Vivian Panka as Heather Duke and Teleri Hughes as Heather McNamara.
The recording also stars Mhairi Angus as Martha Dunnstock and Vicki Lee Taylor as Ms. Fleming / Veronica’s mum. Liam Doyle completes the cast as Kurt Kelly, Rory Phelan as Ram Sweeney and Andy Brady, as well as Oliver Brooks, Jermaine Woods, Benjamin Karran, Chris Parkinson, Eleanor Morrison-Halliday, Mary-Jean Caldwell, Hannah Lowther and May Tether.
Excited about the UK release, Director Andy Fickman said, “Directing Heathers The Musical has been a career high for me. So when we got a chance to film the Stage Capture at our beloved theatre in London where it all began – The Other Palace – that was an even bigger high – and thanks to our partners at Bill Kenwright Studios, Village Roadshow, and now Kaleidoscope we get a chance to share that the magic at cinemas all across the UK – I can’t stop smiling and I hope audiences feel the same way!”
Heathers: The Musical will be in UK Cinemas for one night only on 28th March
