Joining the cast of Dreamboats And Petticoats: Bringing Back The Good Times is Mark Wynter, who sang Venus In Blue Jeans, Go Away Little Girl, It’s Almost Tomorrow and many more.

As fans would expect, Bringing On Back The Good Times is filled with wit, charm and songs from the golden era of rock ‘n roll.

The show finds Laura (Elizabeth Carter) with a successful solo career but her partner on their number one hit record, Dreamboats and Petticoats’ Bobby (David Ribi) has left the spotlight and decided to re-join his former group Norman and The Conquests at St Mungo’s Youth Club.

The adventures that Bobby and Laura and, of course, Norma and Sue, and Donna and Luke (the group’s manager) go through together, include a season at Butlins, and an appearance at The Eurovision Song Contest ­— but most of all leads them straight back into each other’s arms.
