Did You Know?
The compilation CD on which the show is based spent an amazing 157 weeks in the UK Top 40, inspiring several follow-up releases.
Many of the young actors involved in Dreamboats say they’ve been blown away by the enthusiasm of audiences so far. And one in particular – Daisy Wood-Davis, who played Laura – has drawn inspiration from the show since being snapped up by Sony as a songwriter.
When Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran (Birds of a Feather, Goodnight Sweetheart) were invited to write the script for this wonderful musical, they leapt at the chance. And it wasn’t just because they loved the music – it’s also because they themselves met at a local youth club in the 1960s.
