Heathers the Musical will return for a new run, it has been confirmed at the WhatsOnStage Awards.

Speaking at the event on Facebook Live, the musical's producer Paul Taylor-Mills said: "We will be doing it again. It will go to London before it goes out on tour. We don't know when but it will be back."

Carrie Hope Fletcher, who played Veronica Sawyer, also said when accepting her award for Best Actress in a Musical: "If they wanted me back then I would be in that blue blazer in a heartbeat."

The UK premiere of the hit musical, which opened at The Other Palace before transferring to Theatre Royal Haymarket in September 2018, starred Fletcher as Veronica Sawyer alongside Jodie Steele, T'Shan Williams and Sophie Isaacs as the three titular Heathers.

The new production was directed by Andy Fickman, with choreography by Gary Lloyd, design by David Shields, lighting by Ben Cracknell and sound by Dan Samson.
