THE feel-good show Save The Last Dance For Me will transport its audience back to the 1960s when it arrives in Bristol next month.

The production comes from the writers, producers and directors of the hugely successful Dreamboats and Petticoats.

For the first time without their parents, two teenage sisters embark on a holiday to the seaside during the summer of 1963.

Full of freedom and high spirits they meet a handsome young American who invites them to a dance at the local US air force base.

But young love and holiday romance is never as simple as it sounds, and the sisters soon realise that, while the world around them is still watching everything in black and white, life and love can be much more colourful.

Featuring classic hits such as Sweets For My Sweet, Here I Go Again and Viva Las Vegas, Save The Last Dance For Me will be at the Hippodrome from July 8-13.

Tickets, priced £10-35, are available from the box office on 08448 713012.

The Mercury has teamed up with the Bristol Hippodrome to offer four lucky readers the chance to win a pair of tickets to the show on July 9.
