    Blitz! is Lionel Bart’s follow up to the hit musical Oliver! based on his own childhood experiences in the East End during the Second World War.

    It’s 1940 and the East End of London is taking a terrible pounding from Hitler’s bombs. Life, however, goes on, centring around Mrs Blitztein and her large family, especially her petty-criminal son Harry and her beautiful daughter Carol. They are all fighting their own particular battles with neighbours and authorities alike but whatever life throws at them, they never get down hearted. A story full of character, humour, good old fashioned 'stiff upper lip' and people’s refusal to be beaten.

    In the year we reflect on and commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE Day, come along and join Swanage Musical Theatre Company on this journey.
