From the team behind Dreamcoats and Petticoats, Save The Last Dance For Me will take audiences back to a time of music and magic in the early Sixties when each passing week brought another rock n' roll classic.

This nostalgic, feel good journey follows 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.

The show features the classic hits of Pomus and Shuman including A Teenager In Love, Sweets For My Sweet, Turn Me Loose, Here I Go Again, Viva Las Vegas, Little Sister, His Latest Flame and Suspicion.

Antony Costa, best known as a member of the boy band Blue, the biggest British boy band of the Noughties, takes on the role of Milton in the show.

Blue disbanded in 2004 but have since reunited and this year have released their fifth studio album before embarking on a UK tour.
