The other afternoon I travelled on the bus to Swansea. After having a bite to eat in the local market I went to the theatre.
Forgetting the outside world I was entertained by the fantastic show. Taken back to my teenage years I watched, listened and remembered as the cast of DREAMCOATS AND PETTICOTES sang and danced their way through the 60’s songs. The scene was set in a local club where a newly formed band interviewed two lad for their lead singer. One boy, very shy, did not get the part but the other one did.There was a song writing competition which both boys presented their songs. Shy Bobby falls in love with one girl Sue while another, Laura falls for him. In the end the Laura and Bobby do get together and write a song together which wins in ‘STARS IN THEIR EYES’
The audience were all us oldies, all re-living our past as we sang and rock and rolled with the cast.
A fantastic show!
