Our school production this year was ‘Blitz!’ written by Lionel Bart (composer of ‘Oliver’). The show is full of wonderful songs and dances, such as ‘Mums and Dads’ (performed by our Year 7 and 8 evacuees),’ The Day After Tomorrow’ and ‘Opposites’, all performed by the many talented students of Boston High School and Boston Grammar School.
The story centres on the relationship between a Jewish family, the Blitzteins, and a Cockney family, the Lockes, in 1940s London as the city takes a pounding from Hitler’s bombs. At first Mrs. Blitztein and Alfie Locke work at adjacent food stalls – and can’t stand each other. But when their children fall in love with each other and Hitler’s bombing intensifies, Mrs. Blitztein and Alfie are able to bury the hatchet and become friends.
