Sing As We Go!
Celebrating the centenary of the end of World War One, this warm-hearted and fun show tells the story of troops who are
determined to entertain their colleagues in the face of adversity.
Soldiers caught in the trenches on the battlefield keep their spirits high by listening to the radio girls back home, who brighten up
their days by singing songs over the airwaves. The boys at war start writing letters to the radio show, which are read out on air and
are encouraged to start their own concert party to entertain the troops. The radio girlfriends hear about this and
surprise them by flying out to boost morale.
Come along and view this show!
£26 for individuals and groups of less than 23
