TL alum to star in Heathers the Musical UK TourFri 9 April 2021
Musical Theatre alum Rebecca Wickes joins the cast of Laurence O’Keefe and Kevin Murphy’s musical as Veronica Sawyer for a new touring production.
Based on the iconic film of the same name, Heathers the Musical follows high school student Veronica as she tries to fit in with the elitist clique of girls.
The show is set to open at Leeds Grand Theatre on 28 July 2021 where it will have a three week run before visiting locations across the UK including Liverpool, Nottingham, Newcastle, Sheffield, Birmingham, Canterbury, Bristol, Belfast, Dublin, Manchester, Milton Keynes, High Wycombe, Cardiff and Edinburgh.
Since graduating from Trinity Laban with a BMus (Hons) in 2018, Rebecca has performed the role of Scaramouche/Soubrette in We Will Rock You and Katherine Howard in Six with Royal Caribbean Productions.
In an Instagram post announcing her latest casting, Rebecca comments –
“[I] Can’t believe I’m going to be that Dead Girl Walking… I honestly have no words for this, I can’t even begin to explain how grateful and excited I am to have the opportunity to work on this incredible show.”
Also announced was 2019 Musical Theatre graduate Jake Lomas’ casting as Bob in the brand-new West End production of Billionaire Boy. The dramatisation of David Walliams’ best-selling children’s book will premiere at the Garrick Theatre from 17 July.
