With music and lyrics by Jack Godfrey (42 Balloons, This Is A Love Story) and book by Martha Geelan, this fully realised production of Babies follows hot on the heels of their sell-out concert series in November 2023 at the Lyric Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue. Four of the tracks from the infectious pop-rock score including: Baby, Baby, Baby, Hot Dad, Someone Else and Without Saying Goodbye are available to stream and have already been played over 100,000 times.

The full creative team includes: Jack Godfrey (Music and Lyrics), Martha Geelan (Book and Director), Joe Beighton (Orchestrations, Vocal Arrangements & Music Supervisor), Alexzandra Sarmiento (Choreographer), Jasmine Swan (Set and Costume Designer), Paul Gatehouse (Sound Designer), Will Hayman (Lighting Designer), Lauren Hopkinson (Musical Director) Harry Blumenau CGD CDA (Casting Director), Laura Seaborn (Casting Associate),  Molly Stacey(Associate Director), Rachel Luff (Associate Lighting Designer), Martyn Sands (Production Manager), Jamie Owens (Props Supervisor) and Sheree Paton (Costume Supervisor).

The journey of Babies began in early 2021 when Martha and Jack submitted one of the songs titled Hot Dad to British Youth Music Theatre (BYMT) for inclusion in the New Music Theatre Award, which it went on to win. As a result, the writing duo were commissioned to finish the musical with the introduction of a wider creative team, including Music Supervisor, Orchestrator and Vocal Arranger, Joe Beighton (SIX), in preparation for an initial run at the New Wolsey Theatre in Ipswich, where it played three performances with a cast made up of over 30 talented emerging performers from the BYMT programme in August 2021. Indigo Productions and Crossroads Live then joined the project as commercial producers, with the production still proudly partnered with BYMT and supporting the brilliant work of the charity. Development workshops were held in 2022 and 2023 prior to an appearance at West End Live and the series of concerts in the West End at the Lyric on Shaftesbury Avenue in November 2023.
