Based on the 1988 cult film, HEATHERS THE MUSICAL makes its Brisbane debut in the Playhouse, Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) from 9 to 17 January 2016.
Written by the award-winning creative team of Kevin Murphy (Reefer Madness, Desperate Housewives) and Laurence O’Keefe (Bat Boy, Legally Blonde), HEATHERS THE MUSICAL is a fast paced, pop/rock show that is so ‘very’.
Staying true to the story line of the original film, this heartfelt, hilarious, homicidal new musical is for everyone who has ever longed to be in the 'popular' group or dreamed of taking revenge on the cool kids.
Directed by writer, director, performer and cabaret star Trevor Ashley (Les Misérables, Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Fat Swan, Little Orphan Trashley), starring Kirby Burgess (Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story on Stage, Grease, Sweet Charity) and Helpmann nominee Jaz Flowers (Hairspray, Hot Shoe Shuffle), with musical direction by Bev Kennedy and choreography by Cameron Mitchell.
