ABOUT US

Ryan and Lauren's writing and performing experience spans over twelve years.

As a writing duo, Carey-Hills & Hendricks wrote ’”Nursery Crimes” - a comedy musical which received rave reviews, was listed by the Evening Standard as one of the Top 10 New Musicals, and reached the semi-finals of the West End Producer competition. Carey-Hills & Hendricks were also approached to write original music as part of a season of new works at the New Players Theatre (now Charing Cross Theatre). Their most recent musical, “Wytch”, is a powerful female-led show about the Lancashire witch trials in 1612. They also produced a showcase of their work at a sell-out concert “Put The Kettle On” in 2018.​ Carey-Hills & Hendricks are also known for their political satire and comedy songs on TikTok and have provided music for various advertising campaigns.

 

Last year Carey-Hills & Hendricks were commissioned to write Tinker Bell the Musical.
