Comments on: Thursday Theatre News: Hair, Petticoats and Star-Studded Lamps Enjoy the very best of London Thu, 11 Dec 2014 18:18:36 +0000 hourly 1 By: Helen Tue, 15 Dec 2009 13:31:57 +0000 I have seen Dreamboats and Petticoats nigh on 50 times since it opened in Bromley back in Feb this year.
Its an amazing show with a fantastic cast including last years X Factor finalist SCott Bruton, ex emmerdale actor Ben Freeman, ex Hollyoaks star Jennifer Biddall and the orginal Chris from Birds of a Feather, David Cardy.
Together with three new stars, the talented Daisy Wood-Davis, the sexy AJ Dean and the fabulous Emma Hatton who is the dance captain, they explode on the stage with a well known 1961 hit.
I hope the new run has some of the same cast and I wil go and see it again as much as I can.
Scott and Daisy both have record deals with the Universal label, and their songs from the show appear on the third installment of Dreamboats and Petticoats, the fantastic CD trilogy.

I want to see the panto at the Hackney Empire – it’s always hilarious!

By: Zoe J. Griffiths Fri, 20 Nov 2009 09:38:31 +0000 I’m so excited about Hair! Here’s hoping there won’t be too much of a culture shock seeing a Broadway show in the West End?

As for musicals based on albums: maybe in 50 years’ time, someone will do something all nostalgic with the Cafe Del Mar albums. Based in Ibiza, cheap, skimpy costumes, all we need now is a flimsy plot about a missing DJ and some love interest…

I haven’t seen Dreamboats and Petticoats but would love to see more musicals based on Albums. ‘Now That’s What I Call Music (The Musical)’ The sequels are almost endless. Somebody told me that We Will Rock You is to have a sequel too. I am hoping that it’s not true.
