About Babies The Musical

Brand new British show Babies The Musical is coming to London’s The Other Palace Theatre for six weeks only, starring Heartstopper’s Bradley Riches.

Written by Jack Godfrey (42 Balloons) and Martha Geelan, Babies is a new(born) musical comedy about growing out of growing up.

With a blistering pop rock score, this brand new British musical follows nine students as they discover that becoming a parent means changing more than just nappies.

Friendships are tested, dreams are questioned and the real meaning of responsibility rears its terrifying head.

Following a sell-out series of concerts in the West End in 2023, this new show promises to be a joy-filled, heart-wrenching musical comedy.

What's the story of Babies The Musical?

“The year above got pregnant so we’re doing this instead!”

Summer is done. Year 11 is here. Being a child is out. Being a grown up is in. Time for more parties, more responsibility and, oh yeah…becoming a parent to a plastic robot baby simulator.

After a rise in pregnancies among the year above, the school’s sex education department are compelled to take action. Fuelled by a blistering pop-rock score, Babies follows nine classmates as they take on their most important school project yet: keeping a fake baby alive for an entire week. As the pressures of teenage life collide with the demands of parenting, the students are forced to ask themselves: what is it I really want? who is it I really want to be?

Babies The Musical to play the Lyric Theatre in London
A new(born) British musical is coming to the West End! Babies The Musical is getting a West End birthing at the Lyric Theatre in London in November 2023, in a series of staged concerts. The show features music and lyrics by 42 Balloons composer Jack Godfrey, and has a book by writer and director Martha Geelan. Babies is a musical comedy about nine Year 11 students who are forced to look after baby simulator dolls, and discover that becoming a parent means changing much more than just nappies.

The show is produced by Crossroads Live (The Bodyguard, Annie, Chicago, Cats, The Drifters Girl) and Indigo Productions. Producer for Crossroads Live and Indigo Productions, James Lane, said in a statement: “The mission with Babies has been to create a relatable window into the whirlwind experience of being a teenager in today’s world and to deliver a realistic depiction of school life and coming-of-age. We hope that everyone, in some way, can see both themselves and fragments of their own experiences in one, or maybe even a few, of the brilliant characters Martha and Jack have so wonderfully brought to life. This musical has had such a unique journey thus far – it will be a proud moment to welcome audiences to see it in concert on a West End stage.” The Babies The Musical staged concerts are running (crawling?) at the Lyric Theatre on the 10 to 12 November 2023.
