Dreamboats and Petticoats
Cliffs Pavillion, Southend
Tuesday 14th August 2012
This feel-good 50s musical, inspired by the popular compilation albums, hits Southend for a two week run, and is a perfect antidote to the dreary summer weather.
Packed full of toe-tapping tunes, all accompanied live on stage by a host of talented actor-musicians, it cannot fail to make you smile. A very simple storyline weaves the long list of song covers together, which keep on coming every couple of minutes in a packed programme.
With bright period costumes, coiffured hairdos and a couple of dodgems, the production standards are very high. A young cast of talented performers maintain energetic and enthusiastic energy levels throughout, and a reminiscent book ensures some moments of comedy too.
A sure-fire Summer hit, perfect in it's seaside location at the Cliffs - you'll be dancing in the aisles!
