DREAMBOATS AND PETTICOATS: BRINGING ON BACK THE GOOD TIMES

Congress Theatre, Eastbourne

New opening date Tuesday 9 – Saturday 13 August

Bobby, Laura, Norman, Sue and the gang are back together at Eastbourne’s Congress Theatre, for the follow-on musical inspired by the million selling albums, Dreamboats and Petticoats: Bringing on Back the Good Times, 9 – 13 August.

This is a night out that promises pure nostalgia and toe-tapping tunes, bringing on back the memories and making new ones! A hugely successful show packed with the biggest and best songs from the golden era of Rock ‘n’ Roll, featuring hits from Roy Orbison, Eddie Cochran, Elvis Presley, The Walker Brothers, Chuck Berry and more.

This is the third instalment and features the original characters from Dreamboats and Petticoats, but if you’ve missed the previous productions no need to worry this show can be enjoyed on its own merits.

Bringing on Back the Good Times finds Laura (Elizabeth Carter) with a successful solo career, but her partner on their number one hit record Dreamboats and Petticoats, Bobby (Jacob Fowler), has left the spotlight and decided to re-join his former group, Norman and The Conquests, at St Mungo’s Youth Club.

The adventures that Bobby, Laura, Donna and Luke (the group’s manager), and, of course, Norman and Sue go through together, include a season at Butlins, and an appearance at The Eurovision Song Contest – but most of all, it led them straight back into the arms of each other: bringing on back the good times indeed!

Hit recording star of Venus in Blue Jeans, Go Away Little Girl, It’s Almost Tomorrow and many more, Mark Wynter, will continue with the company of established Dreamboats and Petticoats favourites from the past fifteen years.
