Band leader Betty is in trouble. Her glamorous, all female 8-piece 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 band mates 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 clarinetist 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 by-gone but not forgotten era. With songs Don’t Sit Under The Apple Tree, Loch Lomond, T’ain’t What You Do, Goodbye-ee, Wish Me Luck As You Wave Me Goodbye. Tickets: from £16.00 PLUS groups offers, family tickets and concessions.
