Dreamboats and Miniskirts announce full cast for UK tour

Dreamboats and Miniskirts, the 60s-set sequel to 50s jukebox musical Dreamboats and Petticoats, will premiere in August at the Theatre Royal Windsor ahead of a UK tour.
The show is written by the original team of Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran, and promises to pick up the story of Bobby and Laura, Norman and Sue and Ray and Donna.
The advent of the Beatles and the Merseyside sound is changing the musical world. But will it inspire Bobby and Laura to have one more shot at stardom - Norman to "get off the drains" and find that hit parade voice he has longed for, and Ray to realise his ambition and manage a really top pop act?

The full cast includes: Alex Beaumont (Bobby), Ross William Wild(Norman, pictured right), David Luke (Ray / understudy Bobby),Elizabeth Carter (Laura), Louise Olley (Sue), Anna Campkin(Donna), Alan Howell (Tony / understudy Norman), Will Tierney (Joe / understudy Tony & Ray), Mike Kantola (Colin), Sheriden Lloyd (Andy), Chris Coxon(Richard), Damien Walsh (Barry), Josef Pitura-Riley (Jeremy), Josh The (Derek), Charlotte Peak (Muriel) and Chloe Edwards Wood (Jodie).
Featuring hits including "Twist & Shout", "Handy Man", "Pretty Woman" and "One Fine Day", the show is, like its predecessor, based on a compilation album of the same name.
