The writers, producers, creators and director of Dreamboats and Petticoats, have teamed up once again to create Save the Last Dance for Me which visits Worthing from Monday April 30 – Saturday May 5.
The new musical, which takes audiences on a theatrical journey back to the music and magic of the early 60s, has been written by Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran who are famous for penning hits such as Goodnight Sweetheart, Birds of a Feather and Shine on Harvey Moon.
The musical, which has been directed by Bill Kenwright and Keith Strachan, tells the story of two teenage sisters in the summer of 1963 who take their first holiday without their parents to a seaside resort. The sisters meet a handsome young American who invites them to a dance at the local U.S. Air force base and despite the thrill of holiday romance, 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 vibrant.
The story is woven into a rock ‘n’ roll show featuring classic hits by Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman including A Teenager in Love, Here I Go Again, Viva Las Vegas, Sweets for My Sweet and the title track Save the Last Dance for Me, which combine to create a show filled with the hope and optimism of the era as well as some of the sixties’ most timeless songs.
