AUDIENCES will be taken on a nostalgic journey through the music and magic of the early swinging Sixties when Save the Last Dance for Me arrives at Malvern Theatres on Monday (April 29).
The story starts in the summer of ’63 when, for the first time without their parents, two 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.
Written by Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran (Goodnight Sweetheart, Birds of a Feather, Shine on Harvey Moon) it is packed full of the unmistakable hits of Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman, including A Teenager in Love, Sweets for my Sweet, His Latest Flame, Viva Las Vegas, Save the Last Dance for Me and many more.
The show runs until Saturday, May 4 – call the box office on 01684 892 277 or visit malvern-theatres.co.uk
