Doodlebugs And Bogeymen
Written by Joe Hobbs. Musical Director Kit Morgan. Performed by Kate McNab and Ross Harvey
Doodlebugs and Bogeymen takes a fond look at the lives of Jen and Brian Milton, two evacuees from London, who are billeted with Mr. and Mrs. Brimble on their West Country farm.
All set to music from the era and written from stories. A thoroughly entertaining show for the whole family.
