About Blonde Bombshells of 1943

Tuesday 20 - Saturday 24 January
Blonde Bombshells of 1943

Winner of Manchester Evening News Theatre Award for Best Entertainment 2006.

A huge hit at the Bolton Octagon and a sell-out in London, this laugh-out-loud musical comedy, based on the award-winning Last of the Blonde Bombshells starring Dame Judi Dench, is packed with 1940s classics performed live by a sensational eight-piece swing band.

The celebrated Blonde Bombshells, the most glamorous of all-girl swing bands, manages to lose members every time it plays a GI camp! Now there's an important BBC job in the offing and bandleader Betty needs to find new musicians - fast!

With an eccentric bunch of riotous new recruits - including naïve schoolgirl Liz, who plays a mean clarinet; Miranda, an upper-crust saxophonist; singing nun Lily; and Patrick, a male drummer willing to wear a frock to avoid a drafting - Betty and her band prepare to make the journey to a secret BBC recording, and potential fame and fortune.

Packed with toe-tapping tunes by Fats Waller, The Andrews Sisters, Glenn Miller and many more, this sparking and hilarious musical play will have you roaring with delight and is guaranteed to send you home with a smile and a swing!

‘An absolute blast - go see and enjoy.' The Daily Telegraph

Boeing Boeing
By Marc Camoletti. Translated by Beverley Cross and Francis Evans.

Audiences and critics have been unbuckling their seatbelts and rolling in the aisles for this first-class Tony Award-winning comedy (Best Revival 2008).  

Starring Martin Marquez (Hotel Babylon, Dirty Tricks, EastEnders), Susie Blake (Coronation Street, The Victoria Wood Show), John Marquez (Hotel Babylon, EastEnders, Doc Martin), Sarah Jayne Dunn (Hollyoaks, Drop Dead Gorgeous), Thaila Zucchi (Skins, Love Soup) and Josephine Butler (No Heroics, Sorted).
