Blitz! A Sentimental Journey

Music, laughter and a love worth fighting for.

In this hilarious and heart-warming musical we follow Jo’s ascent to the glamour and excitement of West End stardom.  We see her flung headlong into the terror of the London Blitz and then potentially losing the love she has fought for. Filled with the glorious melodies of the 30’s and 40’s this show evokes a time when laughter and tears were only a breath apart.

Featuring the multi-talented Claire Dawson, a lead performer on London’s West End stages before moving to Tasmania.

Dawson handled the varied repertoire with verve and confidence (…) Blitz! is a wonderful collective effort from a cohesive team, supporting a stand-out performer.”
