A new production, Liver Birdsong – The Liverpool Blitz Musical – will run at the Epstein Theatre, Liverpool this autumn.

The British production will commemorate the 75th anniversary of The Blitz and will run from Tuesday 29th September until Saturday 3rd December.

The musical is set on the night of the 28th/29th of November 1940, in the early phase of the Liverpool Blitz. The story follows four ‘Liver birds’ Maggs, Carla,

Daisy Mae and Lil from Kirkby Munitions Factory as they try to overcome their troubles and find hope during the Blitz.

The production is entirely a work of fiction but is based on the facts of the night and the first hand experiences of women from one of Britain’s largest wartime munitions factories.

The musical boasts 18 brand new songs, delivered by a professional musical theatre company and a live band.

The cast will feature Kate McHenry as Maggs Williams, Katie Burke as Daisy Mae Beech, Sophie Gaudie as Carla Evans, Rachel Jones as Cockney Lil Ford,

Corey Rumble as Hal Brandon, Tom Sentia as Chad Tyler and Michael Bailey as Red Ted Forsythe.

Miles Walker will play Lawrence Gale and the character of Ira Jones will be played by Chloe Fay.

Mia Molloy, Natalie Dignam and Ben Keith have all been cast, also.

Writer and producer Tony Bradley commented, “We are absolutely thrilled by the calibre of the professional cast we have managed to secure for Liver Birdsong. They are an incredibly talented group of 12 musical theatre professionals, some with experience in the industry, over many years, and others just starting out.”

The show will be produced by Birdsong Live Productions CIC, who are a father and daughter team, Tony Bradley and Rebecca Mysers.

Live Birdsong is their first joint venture into professional musical theatre.
