A NEW show from the writers, producers, creators and director of the huge success Dreamboats and Petticoats comes to The Mayflower next spring.

Save the Last Dance for Me will take audiences back through the ‘music and magic’ of the early 60s, a time when each passing week brought another rock ’n’ roll classic.

Written by Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran (Goodnight Sweetheart, Birds of a Feather, Shine on Harvey Moon) and featuring the unmistakable music of Doc Pomus & Mort Shuman, this nostalgic, feel-good journey will transport you back to music’s golden era as we follow two teenage sisters through the summer of ’63.

For the first time without their parents, the sisters embark on a holiday to the seaside. Full of freedom and high spirits they meet a handsome young American who invites them to a dance at the local US Air force base… But young love and holiday romance is never as simple as it sounds, and 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 colourful.

Save the Last Dance for Me features classic hits including Sweets for my Sweet, Viva Las Vegas and Suspicion.

It’s at The Mayflower from March 25-30, 2013.

Tickets are now on sale.
