HEATHERS

1 – 10 JUNE 2017
PLAYHOUSE THEATRE HOBART

Westerberg High is ruled by a shoulder-padded, scrunchie-wearing trio: Heather, Heather and Heather, the hottest and cruelest girls in all of Ohio. Veronica Sawyer, a brainy, beautiful teenage misfit hustles her way into the powerful clique, but before she can get comfortable she falls in love with the dangerously sexy new kid J.D. When Heather Chandler: the Almighty, kicks her out of the group, Veronica decides to bite the bullet and kiss Heather’s aerobicised ass… but J.D. has another plan for that bullet. Heathers: The Musical is a hilarious, heartfelt and homicidal new show based one of the greatest cult movie classics of the 80s. With its moving love story, laugh-out-loud comedy and unflinching look at the joys and anguish of high school, the Tasmanian premiere of Heathers is set to be the most subversively funny show of 2017, and so “Very” you may have to kill to get a ticket! Are you in, or are you out?
