Dreamboats and Miniskirts

Dreamboats and Miniskirts

Inspired by the smash hit, multi-million selling album series, which now boasts seven double compilations and a myriad of one off special releases, Dreamboats and Miniskirts swings into Blackpool’s Grand Theatre this September to showcase some of the greatest hit songs of the 60’s.

Produced by Bill Kenwright and Laurie Mansfield in association with Universal Music and written by Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran, the team behind Goodnight Sweetheart, Birds of a Feather, Shine on Harvey Moon, Save the Last Dance For Me and of course Dreamcoats and Petticoats, the show is the sequel to Dreamboats and Petticoats, which premiered in 2009 and became a musical phenomenon having played to over two million people across the UK.

Set in 1963 the story focuses on the Petticoat gang who are now growing up and facing new challenges. In spite of Laura and Bobby’s first single, Dreamboats and Petticoats reaching the top of the charts, they have been unable to repeat that success with any further records. Norman and Sue have now settled down to non-marital bliss – and a baby! And Ray and Donna appear to be 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 final shot at stardom, Norman to “get off the drains” and find the hit parade voice he has longed for, and Ray to realise his ambition and manage a really top pop act?

All will be revealed as the story unfolds with the same wit, charm and great songs as Dreamboats and Petticoats. Featuring hit after hit including Twist and Shout, Handy Man, Pretty Woman, One Fine Day and many more unforgettable 60’s hits, Dreamboats and Miniskirts promises happiness guaranteed.

Dreamboats and Miniskirts is at The Grand Theatre Blackpool from Monday 21 to Saturday 28 September, 2015. Evening 7.30pm, Wednesday and Sunday Matinee 2.30pm

Tickets from £18.50 Concessions/Group Rate available. For more information or to book call the Box Office on 01253 743339 or visit blackpoolgrand.co.uk
