Anthony Costa, best known for being one of the members of the group Blue is to star in Save the Last Dance for Me, sweeping audiences back to the 1960’s.
From the same team that brought audiences Dreamboats and Petticoats comes Save the Last Dance for Me, a show that brings the swinging sixties back to life – including some of the biggest hits of the decade.
The new UK tour is an opportunity for audiences to get nostalgic, as they follow the journey of two teenage sisters through the summer of 1963.
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.
This latest production will star Anthony Costa, whose previous theatre credits include roles in Blood Brothers and Boogie Nights.
