Musical follow-up is just dreamy
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.
