Dreamboats and Petticoats: The Musical is written by Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran, the team behind television favourites including Goodnight Sweetheart, Birds of a Feather and Shine on Harvey Moon.

As the story goes, emotions run high in 1961 as young musicians, Norman and Bobby, compete to win a national song-writing competition and the attention of the gorgeous Sue.
