World Premiere of new musical ‘RIDE’ to open at Charing Cross Theatre this August!

Nominated for the Best Musical Theatre Book Writing in the 2022 Writers Guild Awards, and winner of an Off West End OFFCOM Award, the first full production of the acclaimed new musical RIDE will have its world premiere at London’s Charing Cross Theatre from 25 August to 17 September 2022.

With music, book and lyrics by Freya Catrin Smith and Jack Williams, and directed by Sarah Meadows, this new musical charts one woman’s radical act and explores the lies we tell to escape ourselves.

The cast includes: Liv Andrusier, Yuki Sutton, and Amy Parker.

It’s 1895 and Annie Londonderry has returned victorious to America, hailed as the first woman ever to cycle around the world. She’s pioneering, she’s plucky, and she’s pitching her story to the men who run the newspapers. From the infamous wager that set her journey in motion, to her freewheeling adventures with captains, cowboys, and customs officials, Annie just knows her tales will spin readers into a frenzy. But as she approaches rough terrain, and unexpected paths throw her off balance, can Annie regain her footing, or will she confront the past she left behind?

The creative team includes: Freya Catrin Smith (Music, Book & Lyrics), Jack Williams (Music, Book & Lyrics), Sarah Meadows (Director), Amy Jane Cook (Designer), Natasha Harrison (Movement Director / Choreographer), Sam Young (Musical Director), Macy Schmidt (Orchestrator), Jamie Platt (Lighting Designer), Andy Johnson (Sound Designer), Olivia Munk (Assistant Director), and DEM Productions (Producer and General Manager).
