WIN A PAIR OF TICKETS TO SEE DREAMBOATS AND MINISKIRTS AT VICTORIA THEATRE, HALIFAX
The sequel to Dreamboats and Petticoats – what happened to Bobby & Laura and Norman & Sue?
It’s 1963 and the world is changing. Bobby and Laura’s single Dreamboats and Petticoats has not taken off. Norman and Sue have settled down to non-marital bliss… and a baby. But Ray and Donna seem blissfully happy. The advent of The Beatles and the Merseyside sound is inspirational.
But will it inspire Bobby and Laura to have one more shot at stardom? Will it move Norman to get off the drains and find that singing voice he has longed for, and Ray to realise his ambition and manage a really top pop act?
All will be revealed in a follow-up with the same wit, charm, and great songs as Dreamboats and Petticoats. Many of the songs are from the next period in pop history.
