Dressed head to toe in their finest
threads, take a look at these behind the scenes photos of the cast of Teddy. Rehearsals are underway for this
punchy new musical that features a host of electrifying original songs
alongside rock ‘n’ roll hits from the 1950s performed by the onstage band Johnny
Valentine and the Broken Hearts. Follow Teddy and Josie on a daring night
out as they venture into the dangerous streets of 1950s post-war London. Racing
through the dark and damaged city, this is the ultimate story of teenage rebellion
at a time when a new musical generation was setting the world alight.
