From the team that brought you the huge success that is Dreamboats and Petticoats, Save the Last Dance for Me will take you back through the ‘music and magic’ of the early 60’s, a time when each passing week brought another Rock ‘n’ Roll classic.
Written by two of TV’s most talented writers Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran (Birds of a Feather, Good Night Sweetheart, The New Statesman and many more) and featuring the hits of Elvis’s favourite writers, Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman, this nostalgic, feel-good journey will transport you back to music’s golden era as we follow 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, and 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.
The cast features Antony Costa from chart-topping boyband Blue, and 2014 X Factor Finalist Lola Saunders.
