Our Current Production
By Lionel Bart
Director – Alan Brock
This musical is set, as the title suggests, during the Blitz (the aerial bombings during World War II) in the East End of London.
The story focuses on two families—the Jewish Blitzteins and the Cockney Lockes. Mrs Blitztein and Alfred Locke have adjacent stalls on Petticoat Lane. She sells herring and he sells fruit; they do not like each other. But their children George and Carol are in love with each other. There are more than 20 songs in this production, each one telling the story of war, love and friendship.
24th, 25th, 26th, 30th Nov. 1st—3rd, 7th—10th December
Bookings open Monday 24th October.
5-Year Business Plan released
The Repertory’s new 5-year Business Plan for the Theatre has been endorsed by the Committee and can be downloaded by clicking here.
The Plan is designed to steer the Theatre’s direction over the next five years and outlines some of the things we have to do to get there. It also contains a financial plan which is required under the terms of our lease with the City of Wanneroo.
Please have a read and let one of your Committee know of any comments/improvements you may have. This will be a living document, and hopefully committees in the future will revisit it at least annually to revise it to meet the current environment.
Our Reading Committee have had a flood of late entries and will be meeting in a few days to look at the program for 2017. More details will be announced in November.
