A musical of love and the ocean

If summer is the season of romance, Save the Last Dance for Me is the perfect story to tell.

At the Theatre Royal in Nottingham for eight shows from Monday until August 27, it stars Antony Costa and Lola Sanders, has a script by television masters Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran and the music of Elvis’ favourite songwriters Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman.

A nostalgic, feelgood tale of young sisters on holiday and a charming airman, it has just enough trouble to tug the heartstrings.

Tickets are £14-£35 via 0115 9895555 or www.trch.co.uk.
