The Dreamboys – the Ipswich Regent performance that reminded us not to take life too seriously

From the minute The Dreamboys stepped on stage, I knew it was going to be a great show.
Granted, it certainly wasn’t theatre at its finest, but it was a great excuse to have fun. Far too often we take life too seriously, and The Dreamboys cast reminded us that we are never too old to have a good giggle with our mates. We spent the night laughing and cheering and let the stresses of the week slip away.
It was cheesy and jam packed full of innuendo from start to finish, with fireman, builders and captains among the costumes to grace the stage.
But I don’t think anyone who purchased a ticket – or anyone who is considering going to a later leg of the tour – would expect anything different from the performance.
The audience was packed, and at times the audience was so captivated that, had the music stopped, you could have heard a pin drop.
I took three girlfriends along with me for the night and asked them to review the show in one word. “Captivating” said one, “cheesy” said another. “Hilarious” said the final. How would I describe it? The only word for me would be “fun”.
While the touring show does promote reality TV name Gaz Beadle, from Geordie Shore and Ex on the Beach, he did not appear tonight, but I don’t think that took anything away from the performance. Last year, the audience swooned each time The Only Way Is Essex member Dan Osborne appeared on stage – but it was for a matter of minutes at a time.

So, admittedly, it wasn’t the classiest show to ever grace the Regent stage, but it didn’t pretend to be. What it was, was a fantastically fun night out. Well done boys.
