Bill Kenwright and Laurie Mansfield present the third installment of the Dreamboat & Petticoat series as characters Bobby, Laura, Norman, Sue and the gang return for the follow-on musical inspired by iconic 60s tunes.

Dreamboats & Petticoats: Bringing on Back the Good Times 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 and bringing on back the good times indeed.

Hit recording star of Venus in Blue Jeans, Go Away Little Girl, It’s Almost Tomorrow and many more, Mark Wynter, will continue with the company of established Dreamboats and Petticoats favourites from the past fifteen years.

Elizabeth Carter and David Ribi, Dreamboats and Petticoats’ most successful ever co-stars, lead the cast in the third musical inspired by the latest release in the series of smash-hit, multimillion selling Dreamboats & Petticoats albums, Bringing On Back The Good Times is filled with wit, charm and songs from the golden era of Rock ‘n Roll.

After the success of the Spring tour, the musical is now running into July as it visits us in Woking as well as to Wimbledon, Nottingham, Bradford, Bromley, Glasgow, Oxford, Eastbourne, Darlington and Bridlington Spa.

With book by Laurance Marks and Maurice Gran and musical supervision by Keith Strachen, Bringing on Back the Good Times is packed with some of the greatest songs ever written, from Roy Orbison, Eddie Cochran, The Walker Brothers and many, many more, and will once again have audiences all over the country jiving in the aisles and singing along with their memories.

Mark Wynter‘s (Larry) debut single on the Decca label, a cover of The Safaris’ US hit Image Of A Girl just missed the top ten peaking at No 11 but he registered strongly with subsequent releases Kicking Up The Leaves, Dream Girl, Exclusively Yours and Heaven’s Plan, whilst his LP The Warmth Of Wynter was a steady seller.

Mark has starred many musicals, plays and pantomimes over the years, including playing the lead role of Phantom in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom Of The Opera in London’s West End. To date he has starred in 23 musicals, 38 plays from comedy/farce/drama to classic Shakespeare. During 2013 at London’s Wyndhams Theatre, Mark starred in the musical Dreamboats And Petticoats. Mark is delighted once again to be Bringing On Back The Good Times! for Bill Kenwright Productions.
