Zest Theatre Group is proud to be presenting Heathers, a production the group has described as "not for the faint-hearted".

Mother and daughter directors Terry Mountstephen and Peta Bowey promise to take the audience on an emotional rollercoaster.

"Zest is ready to do Heathers, I'm just not sure Victor is ready for Heathers," Terry said.

The show contains coarse language and sexual references and deals with issues like suicide, bullying and murder.

Based on the 1989 film, this musical takes an unflinching look at the joy and anguish of high school. Westerberg High is ruled by the three Heathers.

Veronica Sawyer hustles her way into the teenage power trifecta and discovers being popular isn't all that it seems. All that changes when a stranger, JD, plans to put the Heathers in their place - six feet under.

There will be 6 performances of this show at the Victor Harbor Town Hall - 7.30pm Friday 31 st January, Saturday 1 st February, Friday 7 th February, Saturday 8 th February and 2pm Sunday 2 nd February and Sunday 9 th February. Tickets are available from the RAA in Ocean Street or online at trybooking.com

Juliet Oliver at Hotel Elliot

McLaren Vale singer-songwriter Juliet Oliver will be performing at the Royal Family Hotel in Port Elliot on January 31. Juliet first discovered country music through watching Hannah Montana as an 11-year-old, and after being gifted a guitar and having Taylor Swift pulling her into the genre, she has been hooked ever since.

She released her debut EP in 2018 and it reached number three on the Australian iTunes country charts, but 2019 was her year, as she was named a grand finalist in the prestigious Toyota Star Maker competition at Australia's largest country music festival in Tamworth, NSW.

She was again named a Star Maker grand finalist this year and battled it out at the festival on January 19.

Juliet loves to share her music with anyone who will listen.

"I love performing live because it gives me the freedom and opportunity to bring my songs to life, allowing me to further express the emotion and meaning behind them," she said.
