Tamworth Arts Club is bringing the rip-roaring, rock and roll intergalactic comedy, Return to the Forbidden Planet to Landau Forte Academy on Ashby Road from Tuesday 29 March to Saturday 2 April.
Although set in outer space, fans of the cult show describe it as 'Shakespeare's forgotten rock and roll masterpiece' as it is based on his famous work The Tempest. A tale of lost love and new found romance spanning generations, Return to the Forbidden Planet sees the spaceship Albatross fall prey to an evil extra terrestrial that mysteriously appears when the ship attempts to navigate a meteor shower and finally lands on a seemingly deserted planet.
Winning the Olivier award for Best New Musical in both 1989 and 1990, the production is punctuated with some of the finest chart hits from the 1950s and 1960s including Good Vibrations, It's A Man's World, Great Balls of Fire, Teenager in Love and Go Now.
Director, Andy Bird said:
“This energetic show is renowned for being the cheesiest live entertainment experience around and our production does not hold back, featuring many ad-libbed geeky references that sci-fi and fantasy fans will love. But the wonderfully hammed-up acting performances, lively chorus choreography and outstanding line up of well known rock and roll classics, means Return to the Forbidden Planet truly offers something for everyone.”
