If you enjoyed Dreamboats and Petticoats, which was at the Kings Theatre in July 2013, you’ll love the swinging sequel.
Dreamboats and Miniskirts comes to the Kings in Southsea on Monday.
You see the looks on people’s faces when you play, like ‘I haven’t heard this one for years’Will Tierney
It’s 1963 and the Petticoats gang 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 top pop act?
Will Tierney plays Joe, the rhythm guitarist in the band that plays live onstage throughout the show.
‘It is a happy, feelgood show. A lot of the people who come and see it grew up in the era.
‘I can see the first few rows and you see the looks on people’s faces when you play, like “I haven’t heard this one for years”.’
Dreamboats and Miniskirts is written by Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran, the team behind Goodnight Sweetheart and Birds of a Feather.
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.
