Peterborough theatregoers will be treated to an exclusive new show this Christmas as Bill Kenwright presents the next instalment in the Dreamboats saga.

Created especially for the new season at The Broadway Theatre, Dreamboats and Petticoats: The Christmas Party will make its premiere on December 22.

In what is being billed as the ultimate Christmas rock ‘n’ roll party, the talented teenagers from Essex get ready for the concert of their lives - live on national television.

Bobby, Laura, Norman and Sue will perform everyone’s favourite festive hits and Christmas tunes including Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree, Jingle Bell Rock and Little Drummer Boy, live from St Mungo’s, the youth club where their road to love and rock ‘n’ roll fame all began.

This is third instalment in the Dreamboats series, which began in 2009 with Dreamboats and Petticoats, which was inspired by the chart-topping album of the same name and introduced theatregoers to the Essex teenagers as they battled to win a national song-writing competition.

Dreamboats and Petticoats: The Christmas Party runs from December 22 to 27, with tickets priced from £19.50 to £55.

Bill Kenwright said:”I’m very pleased to be presenting another major season of musical theatre and more starting this November. And this time around we’re also going to try something new - the premiere of a Rock ‘n’ Roll family musical developed especially for Peterborough for the Christmas week.

“For those of you who have followed the Dreamboats saga, we present a world premiere written especially for Peterborough: Dreamboats & Petticoats: The Christmas Party. An all new festive family Rock ‘n’ Roll musical. Come and hear those Jingle Bells Rock!”
