WORLD WAR II SHOW
Our World War II show follows Lucy, a young girl from Liverpool who is evacuated to Wrexham. She leaves everything she knows behind to start a new life. No one knows when the evacuees will be coming home. When she arrives in Wales, she meets Tom Jones, a young boy from the host family she is to be staying with. Although cold to begin with, we see their relationship blossom and grow as they learn about each others lives and the city children integrate into the countryside.
Using letters back home, we see how Mr Parry copes in the middle of the blitz. We also learn about rationing and how food was seen as a precious commodity that had to be shared out so people did not starve.
As the war comes to a close, Lucy has stopped receiving letters from her father. Will she see him again, or has something horrible happened to him? Find out, as you and your students enjoy our musical WWII show. There’s plenty of singing, dancing and lots of audience participation too!
