The stage show is based on the 1988 cult film which starred Winona Ryder and Christian Slater.

It tells the story of Westerberg High’s Veronica Sawyer, who is just another nobody dreaming of a better day. But when she joins the beautiful and impossibly cruel Heathers, her dreams of popularity may finally come true. Mysterious teen rebel JD teaches her that it might kill to be a nobody, but it is murder being a somebody.
