Classic ’60s rock and roll in new theatre production

Acclaimed theatre and film producer Bill Kenwright is set to bring his latest project to Cornwall.

Save the Last Dance for Me will take the audience back through the ‘music and magic of the early 60s, a time when each week brought another Rock ‘n’ Roll classic.’

Written by Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran (Birds of a Feather, Good Night Sweetheart, The New Statesman) 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 it follows 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 show runs at The Hall for Cornwall from Tuesday August 30 to Saturday September 3. Visit for performance times and more information.
