Play­ers bring new show to cen­tre

West Lothian Courier - - The Weekend Ticket -

The Liv­ingston Play­ers are bring­ing Lionel Bart’s wartime mu­si­cal BLITZ! to How­den Park Cen­tre this month. In 1940 the east end of Lon­don is tak­ing a ter­ri­ble pound­ing from Hitler’s bombs.

Life, how­ever, goes on and the show fo­cuses on the ma­tri­ar­chal Mrs Bl­itztein and her large fam­ily, es­pe­cially her petty-crim­i­nal son Harry and her beau­ti­ful daugh­ter Carol.

They all fight their own par­tic­u­lar bat­tles with neigh­bours and au­thor­i­ties alike, through many sit­u­a­tions, many hu­mor­ous, some tragic to even­tu­ally find their own in­di­vid­ual peace.

From the writer of Oliver! this feel good show fea­tur­ing both adults and chil­dren has many hit songs, in­clud­ing ‘The Day Af­ter To­mor­row’,‘Who’s This Geezer Hitler?’and‘Mums and Dads.

The show runs from Tues­day, May 29 until Fri­day, June 1 at 7.30pm at How­den Park Cen­tre. Tick­ets are £14, (£12 con­ces­sion Tues­day only) and are avail­able to or­der on­line from www. how­den­park­cen­, by email­ing hpcbox­of­fice@west­loth­i­an­ or by calling the box of­fice on 01506 340700.
