About Blonde Bombshells of 1943

The Blonde Bombshells take to the stage once more!

A warm and witty musical play filled with glorious live swing performances of 1940s classics by Glenn Miller, The Andrews Sisters, George Formby and Fats Waller.

The Blonde Bombshells, the most glamorous all-girl swing band in the North, loses members every time it plays a GI camp. Now there’s an important BBC job in the offing and Betty needs to find new musicians fast!

Among those drafted are an innocent schoolgirl, a nun and a draft-dodging drummer not afraid of donning a frock (if it keeps him out of National Service). With her motley line-up complete, Betty and her band prepare to dodge Hitler’s bombs and make the dangerous journey for the performance of their lives.

Blonde Bombshells of 1943 returns to the Octagon stage this summer in a lavish new production featuring live music and stellar performances.
