THREE major West End end Broadway musicals will come to Leeds Grand as part of their first UK tours.

Heathers The Musical, based on the dark 1980s High School film, will be the first to arrive at the theatre on November 3-7 this year.

Next year will see international megahit Dreamgirls from April 13 to May 1, and Andrew Lloyd Webber's School of Rock from May 17-22.

Cilla The Musical will also return from November 9-24.

Heathers The Musical won the WhatsOnStage 2019 award for Best New Musical, and is directed by acclaimed American screen and stage director Andy Fickman.

The high-octane black comedy and rock musical is based on the cult teen film that starred Winona Ryder and Christian Slater as a romantic couple made in hell at Westerberg High.

Its West End premiere saw it become the highest-grossing show at The Other Palace, and it subsequently had spectacular success on transferring to the Theatre Royal Haymarket.

The multi-award-winning new production of Dreamgirls had its critically-acclaimed West End premiere in December 2016 at London’s Savoy Theatre, 35 years on from opening on Broadway.

The show, which was adapted into an Oscar-winning film in 2006 starring Beyoncé Knowles, Jennifer Hudson, Eddie Murphy and Jamie Foxx, features the songs And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going, Listen and One Night Only.

Meet The Dreams – Effie, Lorrell and Deena – three talented young singers in the turbulent 1960s, a revolutionary time in American music history.

Join the three friends as they embark upon a musical rollercoaster ride through a world of fame, fortune and the ruthless realities of showbusiness, testing their friendships to the very limit.

Based on the hit movie comedy, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s School Of Rock follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn a few extra bucks by posing as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school.

There he turns a class of straight-A students into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band – sensationally performed live by the production’s young actors every night with roof-raising energy.

The stage musical of School of Rock features 14 new songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber with lyrics by Glenn Slater (The Little Mermaid, Sister Act), plus all the original songs from the movie and a script by Julian Fellowes who wrote Downton Abbey.

The production opened at the New London Theatre in November 2016 to five star reviews and widespread critical acclaim, and went on to win the Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Music.
