Celebrating a decade of the multi-million selling albums which inspired the Olivier Award-nominated show, Dreamboats and Petticoats The Musical returns to Manchester’s Palace Theatre, running from 27 February until 4 March 2017.
Set in 1961, emotions are running 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.
The incredible success of the first five albums in the Dreamboats and Petticoats series saw more than 4 million copies sold and achieving several weeks at the Number One spot in the compilation charts.
Inspired by the smash hit multi-million selling CD albums Dreamboats and Petticoats One, Two, Three, Four and Five, the West End sell-out sensation Dreamboats and Petticoats The Musical, written by Laurence Marks and Murice Gran (the writers behind the likes of Goodnight Sweetheart, Birds of a Feater and Shine On Harvey Moon) features some of the greatest hit songs of the Rock ‘n’ Roll era, 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.
Produced by Bill Kenwright and Mansfield, in association with Universal Music, Dreamboats and Petticoats The Musical runs from Monday 27 February until Saturday 4 March 2017 at the Palace Theatre, Manchester.
