Cast Announced for Award-Winning Musical TEDDY on Tour
The cast is announced for the award-winning musical TEDDY, by Tristan Bernays, with music by Dougal Irvine, the first production in The Watermill Theatre's Spring 2018 season which runs at the theatre from Thursday 11 January until Saturday 10 February.
Winner of Best New Musical at the Off West End Awards in 2016, TEDDY will tour nationally before a London season at The Vaults, Waterloo from Thursday 29 March - Saturday 5 May 2018. Full tour schedule below.
Produced by Sarah Loader for Snapdragon Productions in association with The Watermill Theatre, the cast for TEDDY includes, Molly Chesworth (Josie), Andrew Gallo (Sammy 'The Sticks' Smith), George Parker (Teddy), Freya Parks (Jenny O'Malley), Harrison White (Buster Watson) and Dylan Wood (Johnny Valentine).
The critically acclaimed, 1950's rock 'n' roll musical reunites Tristan Bernays with director Eleanor Rhode and choreographer Tom Jackson Greaves, following the recent success of their hit production Boudica at The Globe and Frankenstein at The Watermill Theatre and Wilton's Music Hall.
Set in the aftermath of the Blitz against a backdrop of austerity, it tells the story of Teddy and Josie, all dressed up and ready to hit the streets of London for an unforgettable night out, no matter how dangerous the consequences. TEDDY is the ultimate story of teenage rebellion and the birth of a new musical era. Music includes electrifying original songs plus well-known hits from the 1950s performed live by the on-stage band Johnny Valentine and the Broken Hearts.
First seen at the Southwark Playhouse in 2015, TEDDY has music by Dougal Irvine with musical direction by Harrison White, set design by Max Dorey, lighting design by Christopher Nairne, sound design by Max Pappenheim, costume design by Holly Rose Henshaw and casting by Natalie Gallacher for Pippa Ailion Casting.
