In 1961 ‘somewhere in Essex’ emotions run high as young musicians Norman and Bobby compete to win a national song writing competition – and, more importantly, the attention of the gorgeous Sue! But when Bobby discovers that shy Laura is no slouch on the piano, love and rock ‘n’ roll fame beckons…
"The talented young cast of singers and musicians performed to a packed and most appreciative audience. David Ribi and Ben James-Ellis (a name people might recognise from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s ‘Any Dream Will Do’ TV show) were magnificent in the lead roles of Bobby and Norman. All singing and music was performed live on stage and all credit to the man at the mixing desk who did a brilliant job with the sound.
"The show reached its climax with a spectacular finale which had the audience on their feet ‘twisting’ to the sounds of ‘Let’s Twist Again’, ‘C.mon Everybody’ and ‘At The Hop’.
"The show had a real feel good factor and those rock n roll songs have been going round in my head ever since".
