Inspired by the albums, Bill Kenwright and Laurie Mansfield in association with Universal Music present Dreamboats and Petticoats The Musical, written by Marks and Gran, the team behind Goodnight Sweetheart, Birds Of A Feather, and Shine On Harvey Moon, 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.

In 1961 emotions run high as talented young musicians Norman and Bobby compete to win the hearts of their adoring female fans - and more importantly, the gorgeous Laura. But when Laura shows that she's no slouch with the guitar, rock 'n' roll fame beckons.

Manchester born Scott Bruton, one of this year's X Factor finalists, stars in this brand new musical. Scott wowed the nation, Simon Cowell and the other X Factor judges with his vocal talents as he battled his way into the top 12 in this years contest.

Joining Scott is Ben Freeman, famed for his role as Scott Windsor in ITV's hit soap opera Emmerdale, a character he played for ten years; Jennifer Biddall who played Jessica Harris in Hollyoaks; two new stars Daisy Wood-Davis and A.J Dean who were hand picked from hundreds of hopefuls who attended open auditions in London's West End and David Cardy who is best known for his role as Chris Theodopolopodous from Marks and Gran's Birds Of A Feather.

Featuring the hit songs Lets Dance, To Know Him Is To Love Him, Shaking All Over, In Dreams, Bobby's Girl, Three Steps To Heaven, Little Town Flirt, Only Sixteen, Almost Grown, Sleepwalk, Runaround Sue, The Locomotion, Happy Birthday Sweet 16, What A Wonderful World, Half Way To Paradise, Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow, Let's Twist Again and many more hits from music's golden era.

    Just saw this show today, and it is fantastic. I enjoyed every part of it, especially the end when the audience got up and danced to 'lets twist again' me and my friend were having so much fun! I would love to see it again.

    Went to see them at Malvern last night - 13/6/09 - wonderful show, kept you glued from the first bars of music to the brilliant sing and dance along at the end - the whole audience were on their feet at the end - all ages, men and ladies - such a feel good factor - would go to see them again anytime!!

    Saw this at Cambridge Corn Exchange last night. Very polished, great songs, excellent performances from ALL the cast and a feel good factor too. What more could you ask for, go and see it!
