Welcome to my CandyStore

Our friends at Hammer Entertainment in Hamilton are producing another amazing show.

This time around, it is Heathers: The Musical. 
This show is based on the 1988 movie Heathers starring Winona Ryder and Christian Slater.

Hammer Entertainment presents
Heathers the Musical
Directed by Nicholas Kulnies
Assistant Directed by Sean Trainor
Musically Directed by Steve McRae
Choreographed by Alyssa Nedich
Stage Manager Kris Hopper

HEATHERS THE MUSICAL is the darkly delicious story of Veronica Sawyer, a brainy, beautiful teenage misfit who hustles her way into the most powerful and ruthless clique at Westerberg High: the Heathers. But before she can get comfortable atop the high school food chain, Veronica falls in love with the dangerously sexy new kid J.D. When Heather Chandler, the Almighty, kicks her out of the group, Veronica decides to bite the bullet and kiss Heather’s aerobicized ass… but J.D. has another plan for that bullet.

Brought to you by the award-winning creative team of Kevin Murphy (Reefer Madness, “Desperate Housewives”), Laurence O’Keefe (Bat Boy, Legally Blonde) and Andy Fickman (Reefer Madness, She’s the Man). HEATHERS THE MUSICAL is a hilarious, heartfelt and homicidal new show based on the greatest teen comedy of all time. With its moving love story, laugh-out-loud comedy and unflinching look at the joys and anguish of high school, HEATHERS will be Hamilton’s most popular new musical. Are you in, or are you out?

This production marks the Canadian Premiere of Heathers the Musical
