Classic tracks from the golden age of rock ‘n’ roll are being performed this week at Milton Keynes Theatre in the latest production of the musical, Dreamboats and Petticoats.

The show features classic tracks made famous by performers such as Roy Orbison, The Shadows, Eddie Cochran, Billy Fury and many more, including Let’s Dance, To Know Him is to Love Him, Runaround Sue, Happy Birthday Sweet 16, Let It Be Me, Great Pretender, C’mon Everybody, Let’s Twist Again and many others.

The special guest star will be Mark Wynter, who is set to perform classic hits, Venus in Blue Jeans, Go Away Little Girl and It’s Almost Tomorrow.

Dreamboats and Petticoats: The Musical is written by Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran, the team behind television favourites including Goodnight Sweetheart 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.

The show will run throughout this week until Saturday, each night at 7.30pm.

There will be a 2.30pm matinee on Saturday.

Tickets cost £12.90-£38.90. See for details.
