An Olivier Award-nominated show will return to Bristol’s main theatre venue to celebrate 10 years of its multi-million-selling album.

Dreamboats And Petticoats The Musical will captivate the crowds at the Bristol Hippodrome in a spectacular show.

Emotions are running high in 1961, as young musicians Norman and Bobby compete to win a national songwriting competition – and, more importantly, the attention of the gorgeous Sue.

But when Bobby discovers shy Laura is no slouch on the piano, love and rock ‘n’ roll fame beckons.

Inspired by the smash hit multi-million-selling CD albums Dreamboats And Petticoats one to five, the West End sell-out sensation features some of the greatest songs of the rock ‘n’ roll era.

Let’s Dance, To Know Him Is To Love Him, Shaking All Over and Bobby’s Girl are just a few of the fabulous tunes to get your hips swaying and your toes tapping.

The musical is written by Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran, who have also worked together on classics including Goodnight Sweetheart, The New Statesmen and Birds Of A Feather.

The show features classic tracks from Roy Orbison, The Shadows, Eddie Cochran, Billy Fury, and many more.

Dreamboats And Petticoats will be at the Bristol Hippodrome, in St Augustines Parade, at 7.30pm from July 24-29.

There will also be a 2.30pm matinee on July 26 and July 29.

Tickets, priced £17.90-41.40, are available from 08448 713012 or online via
