Six month extension given for Dreamboats and Petticoats
Dreamboats and Petticoats is to stay in the West End a little longer.
Monday, 12 April 2010
Anyone who has not yet got around to watching Dreamboats and Petticoats in the West End may be pleased to know that it has been given another extension.
The jukebox musical was originally booking until May 2010, but London theatre fans will now be able to buy tickets until November 27th 2010 at the Playhouse Theatre.
Dreamboats and Petticoats was originally showing at the Savoy Theatre, but moved to its current home in January this year.
Featuring hit tracks from rock'n'roll stars like The Shadows, Bill Haley and Bobby Darin, the show tells the story of Bobby, who longs to become a famous singer.
He is pitted against Norman, but soon realises he has a better chance if he pairs up with shy Laura, who turns out to be a dark horse.
The show was based on the eponymous compilation albums, the first two of which sold more than 1.2 million copies.
A third installment was released last year in order to cater for a continuing demand for nostalgia.
