If they went into a pub, it could turn into a joke!”
BLONDE BOMBSHELLS OF 1943
By Alan Plater
Band leader Betty is in trouble. Her glamorous band has finally landed a big-time BBC performance on the wireless, but various illicit liaisons with the Yanks have depleted their ranks.
In double-quick time, remaining bandmates recruit new talent. Enter a draft-dodging drummer who is unafraid to don a frock, a nun who plays a mean ukulele, an innocent schoolgirl clarinettist and a rather snooty soldier saxophonist.
Will Betty and her assorted crew give the performance of their lives? Based on the BAFTA-winning TV film starring Judi Dench, this show is guaranteed to raise your spirits with stunning, live vocal and musical performances of hits by Glenn Miller, the Andrews Sisters, George Formby, Fats Waller and more, with all the glitz and sparkle of a gone but not forgotten era.
Come and enjoy the nostalgia!
