Bill Kenwright & Paul Taylor-Mills are excited to announce a new project with Steam Motion and Sound, to bring the hit production of Heathers the Musical to the screen.

Performances at The Other Palace have been taken off sale from 3 – 19 May to allow for filming to take place ahead of a future release. Performances will resume on Friday 20 May and will run through to 4 September 2022. 

As part of the shoot there will be two live performances, and a ballot will be held for tickets, with details to be announced. Casting for the live capture is also yet to be announced.
