about the artist
leo&hyde is a multi-award-winning musical theatre company. We use contemporary music to tell stories about modern life, technology and social media. Our stories are aimed at all ages, but particularly resonant with younger audiences who'd like SIX, Dear Evan Hansen and Everbody's Talking About Jamie. Since forming in 2017, we've toured our work nationwide, including The Lowry, Hope Mill Theatre, The Arcola, The Turbine Theatre, Birmingham Old Rep, Keswick's Theatre By The Lake, The King’s Head Theatre and the New Wimbledon Theatre. We can't wait to build relationships with many other theatres around the UK! www.leoandhyde.com @leoandhyde

✭✭✭✭ “leo&hyde should be attracting the attention of houses up and down the country… They could be writing for the pop industry, and maybe soon they will... they have the ear of today and speak directly to the heart.”
✭✭✭✭1/2 “Excellent… lean, fast-moving and contemporary”
✭✭✭✭1/2 “[An] irresistible rom-com of the highest order… The acting is first class, the singing is excellent and the songs are very catchy. Hyde’s music [...] seems refreshingly contemporary… Mercer’s lyrics are just as keenly observed and are often very funny... leoe&hyde are a formidable partnership... the show has the potential to be very big indeed”
1)Youth theatre workshops: "Body Confidence in Musical Theatre"- This practice-based workshop led by two actors from GUY is about being confident as yourself as an actor, and includes body awareness and physical exercises, and devising a scene from a musical about body insecurity.
2)Creative Workshops (for all ages) - Taking the core theme of body-image, this workshop will use the songs from GUY to encourage participants to reflect on the way they feel in their own bodies, and finding ways to feel positive and comfortable in their own skin. Aimed at participants of all ages and backgrounds.
