Dreamboats and Petticoats
Inspired by the multi-million selling albums of the same name, the West End hit Dreamboats And Petticoats returns to the Palace Theatre, Manchester next week.
Since premiering in 2009 and having played to more than two million people across the UK, Dreamboats features some of the greatest songs of the rock ‘n’ roll era.
The show features hits from Roy Orbison, The Shadows, Eddie Cochran, Billy Fury including Let’s Dance, To Know Him Is To Love Him, Shaking All Over, Bobby’s Girl, Little Town Flirt, Only Sixteen, Runaround Sue, Happy Birthday Sweet 16, Let It Be Me, Great Pretender, C’mon Everybody, Let’s Twist Again and many more from a golden era.
The story wrapped around the music is written by Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran, the team behind Goodnight Sweetheart, Birds of a Feather, The New Statesman, Shine on Harvey Moon and Dreamboats’ sequel, Save the Last Dance For Me.
In 1961 emotions run high as young musicians Norman and Bobby compete to win a national song writing competition, and, more importantly, the attentions of the gorgeous Sue. But when Bobby discovers that shy Laura is no slouch on the piano, love, and rock ‘n’ roll fame beckon.
It runs from Monday to Saturday.
