The smash hit musical direct from the West End




Book by Laurence Marks & Maurice Gran

Tuesday 28 August – Saturday 1 September at Southport Theatre

Due to its phenomenal West End success, DREAMBOATS AND PETTICOATS, inspired by the million + selling albums, will continue its national tour throughout 2012 arrives in Southport at the end of this month!

The dazzling success of the first four albums in the ‘Dreamboats and Petticoats’ series sent the message loud and clear. With over 2 million copies sold and 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. Thus ‘Dreamboats’ was born as a musical, and so was an evening of pure hedonistic affection for a more innocent era, when love was young and so was rock ‘n’ roll.

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 songs from Roy Orbison, The Shadows, Eddie Cochran, Billy Fury, Chuck Berry and many more, including Let’s Dance, To Know HimIs To Love Him, Shaking All Over, Bobby’s Girl, Little Town Flirt, Only Sixteen, Sleepwalk, Runaround Sue, Happy Birthday Sweet 16, What AWonderful World, Let’s Twist Again, Let It Be Me and many more hits from music’s golden era!

With a super West End cast including TERRY WINSTANLEY (2011’s X Factor finalist ) ,what better way to wrap up the Summer in Southport!
