Mu­si­cal fol­low-up is just dreamy

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - ON SHOW -

WHAT­EVER hap­pened to Bobby & Laura and Nor­man & Sue?

Well if you want as­nwers, the story con­tin­ues in Dream­boats and Miniskirts and you can see it at The Swan Theatre, High Wy­combe from Septem­ber 28 to Oc­to­ber 3.

Inspired by the seven smash hit, multi-mil­lion selling al­bums this is the se­quel to the pop­u­lar Dream­boats and Pet­ti­coats, which pre­miered in Brom­ley in 2009, and be­came a mu­si­cal phe­nom­e­non hav­ing played to more than two mil­lion peo­ple across the UK.

And it has a sound­track that you are guar­an­teed to dance to.

It’s 1963 and the Pet­ti­coats gang mem­bers are grow­ing up and fac­ing new chal­lenges. Bobby and Laura’s first sin­gle, Dream­boats and Pet­ti­coats, went to the top of the charts, but they haven’t been able to re­peat that suc­cess with any fur­ther records. Nor­man and Sue have set­tled down to non-mar­i­tal bliss – and a baby. And Ray and Donna seem bliss­fully happy in their pro­fes­sional lives... but are they re­ally?

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

All will be re­vealed in a fol­low up with the same wit, charm, and great songs as Dream­boats and Pet­ti­coats.

Dream­boats and Miniskirts 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 of course, Dream­boats and Pet­ti­coats, and is pro­duced by Bill Ken­wright and Lau­rie Mans­field in as­so­ci­a­tion with Uni­ver­sal Mu­sic.

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

Dream­boats and Miniskirts is at The Swan, High Wy­combe, from Septem­ber 28, with tick­ets priced from £16 to £32. Visit www. wycombeswan.co.uk for book­ings.
