SAVE THE LAST DANCE FOR ME TOUR
There is a new 2016 tour of Save the Last Dance for Me by Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran who wrote the hit West End musical Dreamboats & Petticoats and were also responsible for Goodnight Sweetheart, Birds of a Feather, The New Statesmen and Shine On Harvey Moon.
This is the third tour Bill Kenwright is producing of this musical which takes you on a nostalgic journey through the golden era of the early 60's following two teenage sisters, Jennifer and Marie, through the summer of 1963.
When they go on a family holiday to a traditional seaside town they find much more than just sea and sand when they meet a handsome American airman, who invites them to a dance at the nearby United States Air force base.
Young love and holiday romance is never simple and the sisters soon realise that being in love is far more complicated than they realised.
Antony Costa from the boyband Blue is playing the leading role of Milton with 2014 X Factor finalist Lola Saunders as Jennifer with Wayne Robinson (Kiss Me, Kate, Opera North/National Tour, In The Heights, Southwark Playhouse) as Curtis and Elizabeth Carter as Marie, who returns to the production after playing the role in 2013. Completing the cast will be Sackie Osakonor, Rachel Nottingham, Kieran Kuypers, Joe McCourt, Andrew Joseph, Michael Kantola, Chris Coxon, Sheridan Lloyd, Josef Pitura-Riley, Alan Howell, Anna Campkin and Kate Hardistry.
THIS TOUR ENDED ON 8TH OCTOBER 2016
