The Vackees

Music by Carl Davis, book and lyrics by Hiawyn Oram


Set at the outbreak of the Second World War, this is the funny, moving story of the "invasion" of a Somerset village by the Vackees, child evacuees from London, and their scrapes and adventures with the (at first) hostile native children. The musical centres around a young London lad, Kip, and follows his first experiences of love and war. With a memorable, tuneful score by famous TV and film composer Carl Davis, this evocative musical, with many big production numbers, offers great scope for a large cast.
