Inspired by the extraordin ary success of the multi-million selling albums, the Dreamboats and Petticoats musical promises to delight audiences with its nostalgic look back at the 1960s, an era when love was young and so was rock ‘n’ roll.
Bringing added X-Factor to the musical are Scott Bruton, series five finalist, who joins the tour direct from the West End where he wowed audiences and critics alike with his vocal talent in the role of Bobby.
Scott is joined by last year’s X Factor contestant Terry Winstanley, who plays Bobby’s older self.
The show includes hits by rock ‘n’ roll royalty Roy Orbison, The Shadows, Eddie Cochran, Billy Fury and Chuck Berry. Songs include Let’s Dance, To Know Him Is To Love Him, Shaking All Over, Bobby’s Girl, Little Town Flirt, Only Sixteen, Sleepwalk, Runaround Sue, Happy Birthday Sweet 16, What A Wonderful World, Let’s Twist Again, Let It Be Me and many more.
