Bluebirds a Musical

BlueBirds a musical

As the Blitz rages across London a plucky troupe of volunteers defies Hitler to keep their ENSA song and dance show running. But while it is all smiles and fun for the audience, the real drama is backstage as the war changes everyone’s lives forever.
Packed with 22 wartime classics including Chattanooga Choo Choo, Accentuate The Positive, Every Time We Say Goodbye and the inevitable White Cliffs Of Dover, Bluebirds is heart-warming story of courage and finding love where you least expect it.

Daisy’s quest to find her Bill, an Australian Soldier, eventually leads her on a journey to the Australian War Memorial to the Missing in France. Her wartime memories come flooding back with beautiful nostalgia and a longing for the days gone by.
