About Babies

Be transported to secondary school in the new coming-of-age musical comedy Babies, starring Hearstopper's Bradley Riches. Book Babies tickets on London Theatre.

In the Babies musical, school is back in session, and after a rise in student pregnancies the previous year, the school's sex education department decides to have the students in grade 11 care for a robot baby for a week.

Through touching scenes, comedy, and a pop-rock score with hits like “Someone Else,” and “Baby Baby Baby,” the teenagers experience the pressures of being a student in secondary school alongside the struggles of parenting a (fake) child.

Babies in London is written by Jack Godfrey and Martha Geelan. In 2021, the duo was commissioned to fully develop the musical after the show won the British Youth Music Theatre's New Music Theatre Award. Since then, the show has been seen at New Wolseley Theatre, appeared on West End Live, and underwent multiple development workshops before coming to the West End at The Other Palace.

"Babies is about what it is to be young right now, what it is to be questioning the future, how it feels to try and get everything right," said Godfrey and Geelan in a statement. "We hope it speaks to audiences of all ages; all lived experiences. We hope there's something in there for everyone."

In addition to Bradley Riches, the musical cast includes Jaina Brock-Patel, who was part of the UK tour of SIX in 2022-2023, Lauren Conroy (Shetland), and Zoe Athena (Breeders).

The creative team behind Babies includes musical supervisor, vocal arranger, and co-orchestrator Joe Beighton, who was nominated for Olivier and Grammy Awards for his work on SIX. Godfrey also does orchestrations. Sound design is by Tony and Grammy nominee Paul Gatehouse, choreography is by Alexzandra Sarmiento, and set and costume design are by Jasmine Swan.
