Teddy revival for The Lowry

David Upton

The Lowry is set for a Rock ‘n’ Roll revival with Teddy (February 13 to 17), winner of Best New Musical at the Off West End Awards in 2016.

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 a story of teenage rebellion and the birth of a new musical era. Music includes original songs plus well-known hits from the 1950s performed live by on-stage band Johnny Valentine and the Broken Hearts.

The show reunites Tristan Bernays with director Eleanor Rhode and choreographer Tom Jackson Greaves following Boudica at The Globe and Frankenstein at The Watermill and Wilton’s Music Hall.

The cast includes, Molly Chesworth (Josie), Andrew Gallo (Sammy ‘The Sticks’ Smith), George Parker (Teddy), Freya Parks (Jenny O’Malley), Harrison White (Buster Watson) and Dylan Wood (Johnny Valentine).
