Betty Blue Eyes, Norfolk and Norwich Operatic Society – Norwich Theatre Royal

January 23 - January 27

The uniquely British, heart-warming musical Betty Blue Eyes comes to Norwich Theatre Royal next week (23 – 27 Jan). The show includes a 10-piece band playing as well as six onstage actor-musicians. As well as stunning music, the show stars the life-size puppeteered pig, Betty.

Betty Blue Eyes is based on the 1984 Alan Bennett film ‘A Private Function’ that starred Michael Palin and Dame Maggie Smith. War has ended, but Britain’s long-suffering citizens are suffering under the burden of food rationing, high unemployment and the coldest winter for decades. The only bright spark on the horizon is the impending marriage of Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip. Enter Betty, an adorable pig who is being illegally reared to ensure local dignitaries of a small community in Yorkshire can celebrate while the local population make do with Spam. Until someone inadvertently stumbles across Betty, leading to a kidnapping.
