Sing, Sing, Sing

New Theatre Royal, Portsmouth

I’d like to give The Three Belles a ringing endorsement.

Their tragi-comic show about life in the war was a joy to behold.

Aided by a talented backing band The Bevin Boys who pitched in with plenty of their own swing classics, Portsmouth University graduates Anneka Wass, Sally Taylor and Isabelle Moore thrilled the New Theatre Royal audience with the poignant yet uplifting story of their harmony group alter-egos Betty, Gail, and Dottie as three very different women pitched together on the Home Front.

In the week that Patty, last of The Andrews Sisters, died it was wonderful to hear the likes of Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree and The Boogie-Woogie Bugle Boy from Company B belted out with such aplomb. Beautiful songs, beautifully sung by three talented young women.
