Energetic and intense, dynamic and diverse; it’s a fast paced musical and lyrical journey for Teddy and his young girlfriend Josie.

It’s Saturday night and the pair, wonderfully portrayed by George Parker and Molly Chesworth, are about to hit the streets of London for a good time.

Dressed head to toe in the latest Teddy Boy gear of the 1950s they’re skint and out for a good time.

But their night out turns out to be a night to be forgotten and as a gunshot rings out ... will it be the end of their relationship?

But a little bit of trouble shouldn’t stop a Teddy boy and his Judie from having a good time.

And along the way they have rock ‘n’ roll to carry them through with the on stage Broken Hearts in the shape of drummer Sammy ‘The Sticks’ Smith (Andrew Gallow), bassist Jenny O’Malley (Freya Parks) and pianist/guitarist Buster Watson (Harrison White), the backing band for the hugely talented heartthrob Johnny Valentine (Dylan Wood).

It’s a thrilling show with foot tapping music running throughout and is the ultimate story of teenage rebellion and the birth of a new musical era.
