Due to its phenomenal West End success, DREAMBOATS AND PETTICOATS, the smash hit musical inspired by the million+ selling albums, is to extend its UK tour.
The dazzling success of the first two albums in the 'Dreamboats and Petticoats' series sent the message loud and clear. With over 2 millions copies sold and several weeks in the compilation charts, the Great British public were saying that they didn't just want to listen to pure nostalgia: they'd love to see it as well. Thus 'Dreamboats' was born as a musical, opening at The Churchill Theatre in Bromley in February 2009 to rave critical reviews and widespread audience acclaim. Over a million people have since been enchanted by an evening of pure hedonistic affection for a more innocent era, when love was young and so was rock 'n' roll.
Having recently sold out on its return there in November 2009, the show will begin its extended run with a two week visit from Tuesday 19th January 2010 and continue on a 17 week National tour.
Written by Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran, the team behind Goodnight Sweetheart, Birds of a Feather, The New Statesmen and Shine On Harvey Moon, this spectacular feel-good production will give you 'the greatest time of your life' - taking you back to a time when each passing week brought another classic track.
Featuring songs from Roy Orbison, The Shadows, Eddie Cochran, Billy Fury, Chuck Berry and many more, including Let's Dance, To Know Him Is To Love Him, Shaking All Over, Bobby's Girl, Three Steps To Heaven, Little Town Flirt, Only Sixteen, Sleepwalk, Runaround Sue, Happy Birthday Sweet 16, What A Wonderful World, Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow, Let's Twist Again and many more hits from music's golden era!
2009 saw Dreamboats and Petticoats catapulted into the limelight, with the year ending with their first No1, as Dreamboats and Petticoats 3 stormed to the top of the compilations chart.
