Nostalgia for a golden musical age is the key to a new sell-out musical from London’s West End, set to rock ‘n’ roll its way into His Majesty’s Theatre in Aberdeen this spring.

The record-breaking Bill Kenwright production Dreamboats and Petticoats, inspired by the million-plus selling music albums and featuring some of the greatest hit songs of the Rock ‘n’ Roll era, will run at the city venue for a week from Monday, May 10.

The musical is set in 1961, when emotions run high as young musicians Norman and Bobby compete to win a national song writing competition – and, more importantly, the attention of the gorgeous Sue! But when Bobby discovers that shy Laura is no slouch on the piano, love and rock ‘n’ roll fame beckons.

The show was written by Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran, the team behind Goodnight Sweetheart, Birds of a Feather, The New Statesmen and Shine On Harvey Moon.

It features hit songs from Roy Orbison, The Shadows, Eddie Cochran, Billy Fury, Chuck Berry and many more, including 'Let’s Dance', 'To Know Him Is To Love Him', 'Shaking All Over', 'Bobby’s Girl', 'Three Steps To Heaven', 'Little Town Flirt', 'Only Sixteen', 'Sleepwalk', 'Runaround Sue', 'Happy Birthday Sweet 16', 'What A Wonderful World', 'Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow' and 'Let’s Twist Again'.
