The West End sensation Dreamboats and Petticoats returns to Sheffield from Monday 26th June – Saturday 1st July, telling a classic story of teenage love set to some of the most iconic rock ‘n’ roll songs of all time.

It’s 1961 and emotions are running high as a group of love-struck musicians compete to win a national song writing competition – and the hearts of their teenage crush. Norman and Bobby both crave the attention of the gorgeous Sue, but when shy Laura reveals that she is no slouch on the piano, love and rock ‘n’ roll fame beckons!

Dreamboats and Petticoats brings a familiar face back to Sheffield in Elizabeth Carter, who stars as the shy and talented song writer Laura. Elizabeth was last seen soaring across the Lyceum Stage on a magic carpet in 2015’s smash hit pantomime Aladdin, and has previously played Laura in Bill Kenwright’s touring production of Dreamboats and Miniskirts.

Celebrating the tenth anniversary of the multi-million selling albums, the UK Tour of Dreamboats and Petticoats features songs from the golden era of rock ‘n’ roll such as Let’s Dance, To Know Him Is To Love Him, Shaking All Over, C’mon Everybody and Let’s Twist Again.

Dreamboats and Petticoats comes to the Lyceum Theatre from Monday 26th June – Saturday 1st July.  Tickets can be purchased from Sheffield Theatres’ Box Office in-person, by phone on 0114 249 6000 or online and are priced from £19.00. Concessions and group discounts are available.
