ELECTRIFYING NEW ROCK ‘N’ ROLL MUSICAL TO
KICK OFF OUR 2018 SEASON OF SHOWS
Thursday 11 January to Saturday 10 February
an award-winning, punchy new musical that follows teenagers Teddy and Josie on a night
out as they race through the dark and damaged world of post-war London: bombed
by the Blitz but ripe and ready for revolution. With electrifying original
songs plus some of the hugest hits from the 1950s performed by the on-stage
live band Johnny Valentine and the Broken Hearts, Teddy is the ultimate story of teenage rebellion and the birth of
a new musical era. Bursting with the energy of a live gig, it will leave you on
a high and jiving all the way home.
Tickets £26.50 to £15
