Dreamboats and Petticoats at the Churchill

From Monday 10th to Saturday 15th February, Dreamboats and Petticoats will play at the Churchill Theatre in Bromley.

Inspired by the 7 smash hit multi-million selling albums of the same name, the West End sell-out sensation Dreamboats and Petticoats returns for another hit-packed UK tour. Featuring work by some of the greatest artists of the Rock ‘n’ Roll era such as Roy Orbison, The Shadows, Eddie Cochran, Billy Fury, and many more, the songs inculde 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, and Let’s Twist Again. It’s a celebration of the most dynamic musical decade.

In 1961 emotions run high as young musicians Norman and Bobby compete to win a national song writing competition, and, more importantly, the attentions of the gorgeous Sue. But when Bobby discovers that shy Laura is no slouch on the piano, love, and rock ‘n’ roll fame beckon.

The Churchill Theatre is looking for couples who met in 1961 just like Bobby and Laura. If you are a couple who met or married in 1961, they would like to invite you to tell your story of how you met. Are you still together? Was it romantic? The best story will win a pair of tickets for the performance on Valentines Day with a free programme and a glass of bubbly each only at The Churchill Theatre.

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 and of course, Dreamboats and Petticoat’s sequel, Save the Last Dance For Me. It is produced by Bill Kenwright and Laurie Mansfield in association with Universal Music.
