The candy store is coming to Roku. A live capture of Heathers: The Musical will drop September 16 on the streaming service, allowing fans across the U.S. to experience the theatrical sensation from the comfort of their homes. Check out a sneak peek preview clip below.

Heathers: The Musical was filmed at The Other Palace in the U.K., starring Ailsa Davidson as Veronica Sawyer, Simon Gordon as Jason ‘J.D.’ Dean, Maddison Firth as Heather Chandler, Vivian Panka as Heather Duke, and Teleri Hughes as Heather McNamara. Rounding out the cast are Mhairi Angus, Liam Doyle, Rory Phelan, Vicki Lee Taylor, Andy Brady, Oliver Brooks, Benjamin Karran, Chris Parkinson, Jermaine Woods, Eleanor Morrison-Halliday, Mary-Jean Caldwell, Hannah Lowther, and May Tether. 

Based on the 1989 cult favorite movie, Heathers: The Musical is directed by Andy Fickman, with a book, music, and lyrics by Kevin Murphy and Laurence O’Keefe. Fickman, Murphy and O’Keefe also produce. It follows Veronica Sawyer, a high school nobody unexpectedly taken under the wings of the three beautiful—cruel—popular girls. When Veronica’s dreams of popularity finally start to come true, a teen rebel appears and flips her world upside down. 

The production also features choreography by Gary Lloyd, costume and production designs by David Shields, lighting by Ben Cracknell, sound by Dan Samson, musical direction by Phil Cornwel, production services by Steam Motion and Sound, and arrangements and orchestrations by Laurence O’Keefe and Ben Green. The film capture is produced by Village Roadshow Pictures (VRP) and Bill Kenwright’s BKStudios.

The musical began its U.K. journey in 2018 at the Other Palace, transferring to the Theatre Royal Haymarket for a sold-out limited run later that year. Heathers: The Musical then returned to the Haymarket for another successful West End season in 2021, and concurrently a U.K. tour, before returning to its original home, The Other Palace, in November 2021, where it is still being performed. Stateside, the musical debuted in a 2013 Los Angeles engagement that transferred Off-Broadway to New World Stages. Productions have also been staged internationally in Australia and Brazil.
