Blackburn Musical Theatre Company present ‘Whistle down the Wind’
Based on the book of the same title by Mary Hayley Bell, and later produced as a movie in the hands of Richard Attenborough, Whistle Down the Wind is set in a small, deeply religious town in Louisiana of the 1950s. A poor farming family led by father, Boone, and his three children–Swallow, Brat, and Poor Baby–have recently buried their mother and they are still struggling with the grief.
As Christmas approaches and the family cannot afford any presents or luxuries, the three children are desperate to find something to hold on to and believe in.
Can a Stranger help restore their faith in the family unit?
Whistle Down the Wind is full of incredibly powerful musical numbers composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber with Lyricist Jim Steinman
