The birth of the next big thing in musical theatre’ – All That Dazzles

‘A buzzing, catchy, endearing belter of a show’ Whats On Stage

A wonderfully relative coming-of-age story, packed with humour and heart’ – West End Best Friend

“BABY, BABY, BABY!!! I think we have a new smash-hit British musical on our hands”- @ShanTossell

“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?

After a sold-out West End concert series, Babies comes to The Other Palace for 6 weeks only!
