TAKE a trip back to the music and magic of the 1960s when each week brought with it another timeless rock and roll classic.
From the writers, producers, creators and director of the huge success that is Dreamboats and Petticoats, Save the Last Dance For Me will be staged at The Bristol Hippodrome from Monday until February 11.
Written by Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran (Goodnight Sweetheart, Birds of a Feather, Shine on Harvey Moon), featuring the unmistakable music of Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman, and with authentic recreation of the sound of rock and roll, this nostalgic, feel-good journey will transport you back to music’s golden era as it follows two teenage sisters through the summer of 1963.
For the first time without their parents, the sisters embark on a holiday to the seaside. Full of freedom and high spirits they meet a handsome young American who invites them to a dance at the local 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 itself in black and white, life and love can be much more colourful.
The music-filled production features classic tunes like A Teenager in Love, Sweets For My Sweet, Turn Me Loose, Here I Go Again, Viva Las Vegas, Little Sister, His Latest Flame, Suspicion, Can’t Get Used To Losing You and Save The Last Dance For Me.
Tickets, priced £11.50-35.50, are available via www.bristolhippodrome.org.uk
