Smash hit musical Dreamboats and Petticoats can be seen on stage in St Albans this week.
Direct from the West End, the musical will enjoy a week-long run at the Alban Arena.
Opening tomorrow (Monday), the show runs until Saturday, May 24, with performances at 7.30pm.

Inspired by the multi-million selling albums Dreamboats and Petticoats One, Two, Three, Four and Five, Dreamboats and Petticoats The Musical features classic tracks from Roy Orbison, The Shadows, Eddie Cochran, Billy Fury and many more.
In 1961, emotions run high as young musicians, Norman and Bobby, compete to win a national songwriting contest, and, more importantly, the attention of the gorgeous Sue.
But when Bobby discovers that shy Laura is no slouch on the piano, love, and rock ‘n’ roll fame beckon.
The show includes hits Let’s Dance, To Know Him is to Love Him, Shaking All Over, Bobby’s Girl, Little Town Flirt, Only Sixteen, Runaround Sue, Happy Birthday Sweet 16, Let It Be Me, Great Pretender, C’mon Everybody, Let’s Twist Again and many more from music’s golden era.
