Celebrating the music of the early 60s – a time when each week brought another Rock ‘n’ Roll classic – Save the Last Dance for Me is written by comedy-writing duo Laurence Marks & Maurice Gran (Birds of a Feather, Goodnight Sweetheart, Shine on Harvey Moon).
Featuring the classic hits of Doc Pomus & Mort Schuman including A Teenager In Love, Sweets For My Sweet, Turn Me Loose and, of course, Save The Last Dance For Me, the story follows two teenage sisters through the summer of ‘63.
For the first time without their parents, the sisters embark on a holiday to the seaside. Full of freedom and high spirits they meet a handsome young American who invites them to a dance at the local U.S. Air force base, but young love and holiday romance is never as simple as it sounds. The sisters soon realise that while the world around them is still watching itself in black and white, life and love can be much more colourful.
Save the Last Dance for Me is at Leeds Grand Theatre from Monday 8th to Saturday 13th April.
