"Dreamboats and Petticoats" tells the story of musicians Norman and Bobby as they compete to win a national songwriting competition. It's based on popular songs from the '50s and early '60s, such as "Let's Dance", "Shakin' All Over", "Runaround Sue", "Happy Birthday, Sweet Sixteen", "C'mon Everybody" and "Let's Twist Again". 1960s pop star Mark Wynter makes a guest appearance to sing three of his hits: "Venus in Blue Jeans"’, "It's Almost Tomorrow" and ‘"Go Away Little Girl’".
