AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Dream Lover reveals the extraordinary story of legendary singer, songwriter and actor Bobby Darin. Adored by his fans, who together with his movie star wife Sandra Dee, provide the amazing soundtrack to a generation.

'Starring David Campbell and Hannah Fredericksen and directed by Simon Phillips (Priscilla Queen of the Desert – The Musical), the show presents great hits from the 50s and 60s including Mack The Knife, Beyond the Sea and the multi-million-seller Dream Lover. This musical captures the glamour and passion of the big band era, the Rat Pack in Vegas and the Golden Age of Hollywood – a time of trail-blazing stars, knock-out fashions and life-changing events.

'Featuring a sensational cast with over 40 on stage including an 18-piece big band, Dream Lover – The Bobby Darin Musical is a big show with a big score and a big heart.' (Production summary)
