Sample: Sequinned Suits and Platform Boots


A glam rock tribute play, Sequinned Suits and Platform Boots affectionately recalls the glittering fun, flamboyant music and fashion of the 70’s through one teenage boy’s simultaneous ambitions to be a rock star (The Starman) and to woo local girl of his dreams, Lorraine Izoff. The music of David Bowie, T-Rex, Suzi Quatro, Roxy Music, Slade, Mott the Hoople, The Sweet, Alice Cooper and Mud provides the upbeat nostalgic soundtrack. Featured on David Bowie’s own website news page, Sequinned Suits and Platform Boots is clearly embraced by All the Young Dudes!
It proved a big hit with audiences at the 2006 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Ideal for use in One Act Play Festivals and school productions, here is a lively and colourful production, with fantastic opportunities for both wardrobe and performers. A feel-good play with the atmosphere of a musical – ideal material for teens and any theatre group with members who are fans of early seventies music.
Parents (and grandparents!) will relate to and really enjoy it! In the original production, every appearance of The Blockbuster elicited shrieks of delight!
