See Heathers the Musical at the Sunderland Empire

Based on the 1988 cult film with Winona Ryder and Christian Slater, Heathers is the record-breaking hit musical from Laurence O’Keefe (Legally Blonde) and Kevin Murphy. Heathers quickly sold out of tickets during its LA trial, moving to Off-Broadway, London’s West End and international tours.

The dark American comedy follows four teens at Westerburg High School. The Heathers clique adopt lonely and longing Veronica Sawyer to join their gang, ruling the school one cruel trick at a time. But when Veronica meets the mysterious new student JD, things take a different course, as the pair embark on a murderous campaign to take down the popular kids at school.

Though the musical is dark and is interweaves many important contemporary issues, such as bulimia, bullying, teen suicide, and more, it’s a comedy at its core. Humour and rock music carry audiences through the well-known story, with songs such as ‘Dead Girl Walking’, ‘Seventeen’ and ‘Freeze Your Brain’.

Whether you fell in love with Heathers back in the 80s or have yet to see it, the musical is a great way to revisit the iconic era. Scrunchies, shoulder-pads and knee highs, Heathers is nothing but iconic. After scooping up a handful of WhatsOnStage Awards - including Best New Musical - Heathers is back for more greetings and salutations...


Venue Details

Opened in 1907, the Sunderland Empire is the North East of England’s flagship theatre venue. This beautiful Edwardian theatre is one of the region’s largest theatres, capable of squeezing in up to 2,200 people, and it serves as an excellent variety entertainment venue, hosting theatre, dance, comedy and touring musicals.

The Sunderland Empire was officially opened in 1907 by variety and vaudeville star Vesta Tilley, with its owners Richard Thorton and Edward Moss aiming to open up theatres to working class people in the region. As theatre declined with the rise of television and cinema, the Empire was taken over by Sunderland City Council who managed to keep the venue afloat. The Empire re-opened in 1960 and played host to numerous important performances, including a visit by The Beatles during their first UK national tour.

In the early 2000s the Empire’s operators changed hands again and the venue underwent a multi-million pound refurbishment. The upgrades to the Empire mean that it is proudly the only theatre between Edinburgh and Manchester capable of staging large West End productions, something it has done often since - Starlight Express, Miss Saigon and Footloose have all been performed there.
