DREAMBOATS AND MINISKIRTS to Receive World Premiere on August 6; Followed by UK Tour
This summer a sensational new musical is set to showcase the greatest hit songs of the 60s. DREAMBOATS AND MINISKIRTS, the sequel to the sellout Dreamboats and Petticoats, receives its World Premiere on Wednesday 6 August at the Theatre Royal in Windsor.
Since its premiere in Bromley 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 and a myriad of one off special releases! Now the creative team reunite for the sequel.
Universal Music will release an album entitles Dreamboats and Miniskirts in July 2014.
It's 1963, and the world is changing. 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 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.
