Dreamboats and Petticoats will hit the Hippodrome's stage.


INSPIRED by the success of its albums and phenomenal response in the West End, hit production Dreamboats and Petticoats will return to the Bristol Hippodrome.

The British public has been desperate to see a show which has sold more than two million copies of the album and spent several weeks at the number one spot in the compilation charts.

And so came an evening of pure nostalgia for a more innocent era, all about love and rock ’n’ roll.

Joining the Dreamboats cast for this year’s tour will be X Factor contestant Terry Winstanley.

Scaffolder Terry made it through to the judges’ houses after he impressed with his rendition of Michael Bolton’s To Love Somebody.

The show encompasses the emotions of 1961 which run high as young musicians Norman and Bobby compete to win a national song-writing competition and the attention of the gorgeous Sue. But when Bobby discovers that shy Laura is no slouch on the piano, love and rock ‘n’ roll fame beckons.

Featuring songs from Roy Orbison, The Shadows and Eddie Cochran, this feel-good production will take you back to a time when each passing week brought another classic track.

The show will hit the stage from January 30 to February 4 at 7.30pm, with matinees on Wednesday and Saturday at 2.30pm. Tickets, priced £12.50-36.50, are available from the box office on 0844 8717627.
