NOTTINGHAM’S Theatre Royal is playing host to a new production of ‘Save the Last Dance’ next week - and we have show tickets and a CD featuring the songs of the show’s era to give away.
The production is from the same team who previously brought Dreamboats and Petticoats to the Theatre Royal and it promises to transport audience members back to the classic rock and roll era in the early 1960s.
‘Save the Last Dance’ has been written by Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran, who also wrote TV sitcoms such as Birds of a Feather and Goodnight Sweetheart, and features the music of Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman, the songwriters who wrote many of the hits for Elvis Presley, the Drifters and many more.
They also penned countless classics such as ‘Viva Las Vegas’ and of course, ‘Save the Last Dance for Me’.
This nostalgic show tells the story of two teenage sisters as we follow them through the summer of 1963.
The pair take their first holiday to the seaside without their parents where they meet a young American man who invited them to a dance at the US Airforce base.
During the course of their holiday, they learn that life and love are not as simple as they thought.
‘Save the Last Dance’ opens on Monday and runs until 21st April. Tickets are priced at between £33 and £12.50 with concessions available.
For details or to book tickets contact the Box Office on (0115) 989 5555 or visit the online box office.
We have a pair of tickets to give away for the show on Monday evening at 7.30pm. We also have a CD to give away to another lucky reader. To be in with a chance of winning get your copy of this week’s Chad (11th April).
