STAR OF STRAIT STREET had its first performance in Strait Street in 2017 and has since had successful performances throughout Malta as well as in London, Winchester, San Francisco, Sydney, Melbourne, and Adelaide.

Let this true-life love story from World War II
take you back to the wild days of Valletta’s most famous street.

Beautiful Christina meets dashing Flying Officer Warburton and the rest is history!

This musical play tells the story of the beautiful singer Christina Ratcliffe, who arrives to entertain the troops at The Morning Star in “The Gut” before the outbreak of hostilities. Working in the Lascaris
War Rooms and being awarded the British Empire Medal for her services to the RAF, Christina falls in love with an RAF hero who takes off on just one more sortie…

Featuring wartime standards like “I’ll Be Seeing You” alongside original songs such as “Welcome to Valletta”, this show is a feast for theatre and music lovers, enthusiasts of Maltese history and anyone looking for a good time!

‘A passionate, funny, bittersweet romance by Philip Glassborow, woven through with popular songs of WWII and new numbers that effortlessly fit the genre like a glove.’
