The musical Teddy is due to run at The Vaults in Waterloo next year, following a national tour. Written by Tristan Bernays, with music by Dougal Irvine, Teddy is set in the aftermath of the Blitz and tells the story of teenagers Teddy and Josie who are on a night out together. The musical features an original score, as well as hits from the 1950s performed by a live band, Johnny Valentine and the Broken Hearts.
Following the recent success of their smash hit production Boudica at The Globe, Tristan Bernays reunites with director Eleanor Rhode and choreographer Tom Jackson Greaves for the 1950s rock ‘n’ roll musical Teddy. First seen at the Southwark Playhouse in 2015 and winner of Best New Musical at the Off West End Awards, Teddy has music by Dougal Irvine, 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.
