Dreamboats And Miniskirts
Darlington Civic Theatre
Mon 15 to Sat 20 September
Dreamboats and Miniskirts will be presented at Darlington Civic Theatre for just one week from 15thSeptember as part of a major national tour. The show follows the enormous success of Dreamboats and Petticoats and sister show, Save The Last Dance For Me.
Written by Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran, it is 1963 and the world is changing Bobby (Alex Beaumont) and Laura’s (played by local girl Elizabeth Carter) single Dreamboats and Petticoats has not taken off. Norman and Sue have settled down to non-marital bliss – and a baby! But Ray (David Luke) and Donna (Anna Campkin) 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 singing 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. Many of the songs are from the next period in pop history, such as A Picture of You, Don’t ever Change, Do you Love me, Handy Man, It’s in His Kiss, Go Now, When will I be loved, Hippy Hippy Shake!
