Hits from the 1960s set to be relived in musical sequel

Malvern Editorial 10th Oct, 2014 Updated: 20th Oct, 2016   0

THE GREATEST hits of the 1960s are set to be relived when the sequel of a well-known musical is performed in Malvern later this month.

Dreamboats and Miniskirts takes to the Malvern Theatres stage from Monday to Saturday (October 20 to 25) and is the follow up to the much anticipated sell-out show Dreamboats and Petticoats.

Since its premiere in 2009 Dreamboats and Petticoats has become a musical phenomenon having played to more than two million people across the UK.

Inspired by Universal’s multi-million selling album series which now boasts seven double compilation albums – now the creative team reunite for the sequel.

Produced by Bill Kenwright and Laurie Mansfield, the show is set in 1963 with the world changing. Teenagers Bobby and Laura’s single ‘Dreamboats and Petticoats’ is only half a hit. Norman and Sue have settled down to non-marital bliss – and a baby! And Ray and Donna seem blissfully happy.

The success of The Beatles and the Merseyside sound is proving inspirational. But will it inspire Bobby and Laura to have one more shot at stardom? Norman to find that hit parade voice he has longed for? And Ray to realise his ambition and manage a really top pop act?

The show is written by Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran – the team behind Goodnight Sweetheart, Birds of a Feather, The New Statesman, Shine on Harvey Moon, Save the Last Dance For Me and Dreamboats and Petticoats.

Featuring hit after hit from Twist and Shout to Handy Man to Pretty Woman, One Fine Day and many more, Dreamboats and Miniskirts is happiness guaranteed.

Shows start at 7.30pm each evening with matinée performances taking place on Wednesday (October 22) and Saturday (October 25) at 2.30pm.

Tickets cost from £27.44 and are available by visiting www.malvern-theatres.co.uk or calling 01684 892277.
