In Conversation with LAUREN CHINERY and GLEANNE PURCELL-BROWN discussing Blonde Bombshells of 1943WATCH THE VIDEO HERE!
We interviewed Lauren Chinery and Gleanne Purcell-Brown about the musical play, Blonde Bombshells of 1943. It will be on at The Octagon in Bolton from Friday 9th June to Saturday 1st July 2023.
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.
Karen Ryder asks the questions.
