Dreamboats sequel tours UK from August
''Dreamboats and Miniskirts'' features a range of 60s hits
Dreamboats and Miniskirts, the 60s-set sequel to 50s jukebox musical Dreamcoats and Petticoats, will premiere in August at the Theatre Royal Windsor ahead of a UK tour.
The advent of the Beatles and the Merseyside sound is changing the musical world. 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 really top pop act?
Featuring hits including "Twist & Shout", "Handy Man", "Pretty Woman" and "One Fine Day", the show is, like its predecessor, based on a compilation album of the same name.
