REVIEW Southport Theatre opening night of ‘Save the Last Dance For Me’ April 16th, 2013 admin Latest News Shares Comments ‘A packed Southport Theatre saw the opening night of ‘Save the Last Dance For Me’ on Monday 15th April 2013. Set in 1963 it tells the story of Marie, a young teenager falling in love with Curtis an American Airmen stationed near Lowestoft. Every song and dance routine flowed seamlessly. High energy and enthusiasm were maintained from beginning to end. A multi-talented orchestra played live on stage and belted out many familiar tunes to the appreciative audience. Hit songs included ‘Viva Las Vegas; ‘His Latest Flame’ and of course ‘Save the Last Dance for Me’ were just a few of the many songs that had the audience dancing in the aisles by the end of the night. Marie and Curtis shone in their leading roles. However, all of the cast had their own moments in spotlight including Jennifer, Della and Carlo. From the writer of ‘Goodnight Sweetheart’ the show brings a great night of dancing, music and humour to the Southport Theatre that is well worth a ticket’.

Written by Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran (Goodnight Sweetheart, Birds of a Feather, Shine on Harvey Moon), featuring the unmistakable music of Doc Pomus & Mort Shuman, and with authentic recreation of the sound of Rock ‘n’ Roll, this nostalgic, feel-good journey will transport you back to music’s golden era as we follow two teenage sisters through the summer of ‘63. For the first time without their parents, the sisters embark on a holiday to the seaside. Full of freedom and high spirits they meet a handsome young American who invites them to a dance at the local U.S. Air force base… But young love and holiday romance is never as simple as it sounds, and the sisters soon realise that while the world around them is still watching itself in black and white, life and love can be much more colourful.
