IT'S BEEN announced the show Save The Last Dance For Me will wing its way to the Princess Theatre, Torquay, from May 28 to June 1.

Billed as Dreamboats and Petticoats meets Dirty Dancing, it features many rock 'n' roll hits.

From the writers, producers, creators and director of the successful production Dreamboats and Petticoats, Save the Last Dance for Me will take you back through the 'music and magic' of the early 1960s, 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), featuring the music of Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman, and with authentic recreation of the sound of rock 'n' roll, this nostalgic, feel-good journey will transport you back to music's golden era as we follow two teenage sisters through the summer of 1963. For the first time without their parents, the siblings 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 U.S. Air force base.

But young love and holiday romance is never as simple as it sounds, and the sisters soon realise while the world around them is still watching itself in black and white, life and love can be much more colourful.

Featuring 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; Suspicion; Can't Get Used to Losing You; Save the Last Dance For Me and many more.
