1950’s Rock ‘n’ Roll musical TEDDY extends run at The Vaults
Snapdragon Productions is delighted to announce that the run of the award-winning 1950’s rock’n’roll musical TEDDY at The Vaults, London has been extended by four weeks. TEDDY will now play from 29 March to 3 June 2018. Snapdragon Productions is also delighted to announce the release of the official album Songs from Teddy the Musical by Johnny Valentine and the Broken Hearts which is now available via iTunes and Spotify.
Produced by Sarah Loader for Snapdragon Productions in association with The Watermill Theatre, the cast for TEDDY includes, Molly Chesworth as ‘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.
