Show will transport you to music’s golden era

STLDFM-a5-BP.8_2Save the Last Dance for Me will take you back through the music and magic of the early 60s, a time when each passing week brought another rock ‘n’ roll classic, when it arrives at Derby’s Assembly Rooms next month.

From the writers, producers, creators and director of the huge success that is Dreamboats and Petticoats,  featuring the unmistakable music of Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman, and with authentic recreation of the sound of rock ‘n’ roll, this nostalgic, feel-good journey will transport you back to music’s golden era.

We follow two teenage sisters through the summer of ‘63, when for the first time without their parents, they 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 US 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.

Featuring the classic hits of Pomus and Shuman including; A Teenager in Love; Sweets for my Sweet; Turn Me Loose; Here I Go Again; Viva Las Vegas; Little Sister; His Latest Flame; Suspicion; Can’t Get Used to Losing You; Save the Last Dance For Me and many more.

This fantastic production comes to Derby LIVE’s Assembly Rooms from  February 4 to 9.

Tickets priced at £18.25 – £32.25 with concessions available from Monday to Thursday can be purchased at Derby LIVE’s box office on 01332 255800 or online at
