ST: Dreamboats and Petticoats
Cliffs Pavilion, Southend-on-Sea
Tue 29 Aug - Sat 2 Sept
Inspired by the smash-hit multi-million selling albums Dreamboats and Petticoats One, Two, Three, Four and Five, the West End sell out sensation Dreamboats and Petticoats The Musical features some of the greatest hit songs of the Rock ‘n’ Roll era. The dazzling success of the first five albums in the Dreamboats and Petticoats series sent the message loud and clear, after several weeks at the Number One spot in the compilation charts, the Great British public were saying that they didn’t just want to listen to pure nostalgia: they’d love to see it as well.
In 1961 emotions run high as young musicians Norman and Bobby compete to win a national song writing competition - and, more importantly, the attention of the gorgeous Sue! But when Bobby discovers that shy Laura is no slouch on the piano, love and rock ‘n’ roll fame beckons.
Featuring classic tracks from Roy Orbison, The Shadows, Eddie Cochran, Billy Fury, and many more 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 hits from music’s golden era!
Dreamboats and Petticoats – the songs will live forever!
