Event Details

It’s 1947. Belts are being tightened and Shepardsford’s long-suffering citizens are told by the government that strict rationing is to continue. The only bright spark on the horizon is the impending marriage of Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip… and so unfolds the comedic tale of community spirit and resistance.

Featuring an array of local talent, ‘Betty Blue Eyes’ has wit, charm and a deliciously infectious, toe-tapping score that captures the essence of the 1940s.

It’s an utterly British musical, full of eccentric characters, such as Gilbert – an evangelistic chiropodist, and Joyce – a nobody determined to be somebody; Inspector Wormold – an obsessive destroyer of illegal meat; Mother Dear – ‘She’s seventy four and ravenous’; along with a weird assortment of bullies, spivs and snobs and of course, our star, Betty the pig.

‘Betty Blue Eyes’ promises to be a theatrical delight not to be missed!

* Director/Choreographer: Stuart Simons.
