This whirl round the jukebox of one of the most dynamic musical decades stars musical legend Mark Wynter who is set to perform classic hits Venus In Blue Jeans, Go Away Little Girl and It’s Almost Tomorrow for the first time on tour in 50 years.

Mark is delighted to be returning to his musical roots by joining the cast of Dreamboats and Petticoats on tour, revisiting the magical time in the early 60’s when he made his professional debut.

The musical centres around Norman and Bobby competing to win a national song writing competition.

Since premiering in Bromley in 2009 and having played to more than two million people across the UK, Dreamboats and Petticoats, inspired by Universal’s multi-million selling album series (now boasting six double compilation albums and a myriad of one off special releases) features some of the greatest songs of the Rock ‘n’ Roll era, when each passing week brought another classic track.

Written by Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran, the team behind Goodnight Sweetheart, Birds of a Feather, The New Statesman, Shine on Harvey Moon and of course, Dreamboats and Petticoat’s sequel, Save the Last Dance For Me and is produced by Bill Kenwright and Laurie Mansfield in association with Universal Music.

Featuring the classic tracks Let’s Dance, To Know Him Is To Love Him, Shaking All Over, Bobby’s Girl, Little Town Flirt, Only Sixteen, Runaround Sue, Happy Birthday Sweet 16, Let It Be Me, Let’s Twist Again, and many more from music’s golden era.

Dreamboats and Petticoats will be at the Nottingham Theatre Royal from Monday 25th November until Friday 29th November.

Tickets range from £16 to £34.50.

Performances start at 7.30pm and there is a performance at 2.30pm on Wednesday and Saturday.
