Blonde Bombshells of 1943

Presented by Theatre by the Lake, Octagon Theatre Bolton and Stephen Joseph Theatre

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 Glen 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 is a lavish new production featuring live music and stellar performances!

‘From the producing team behind hit comedy ‘One Man Two Guvnors’, we’re thrilled to be bringing Blonde Bombshells of 1943 to the stage in a brand-new production. Join us for a toe-tapping night out as we take you back to the 1940s with a gripping story and fantastic live music.’ – Lotte Wakeham, Artistic Director, Octagon Theatre Bolton
