Inspired by Shakespeare's The Tempest, this jukebox musical is packed with rock 'n' roll classics such as Heard it Through the Grapevine, Young Girl, Good Vibrations and Gloria. Blast off on a routine flight and crash into the plant D'Illyria where a sci-fi version of The Tempest set to rock 'n' roll golden oldies unfolds with glee. The planet is inhabited by a sinister scientist, Dr. Prospero; his delightful daughter Miranda; a faithful robot on roller skates Ariel; and an uncontrollable monster whose tentacles penetrate through space. Return to the Forbidden Planet won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Musical in both 1989 and 1990. "The best rock 'n' roll show in town...you just have to laugh at the death defying puns..." - Daily Express Recommended for patrons 13 and up. Tickets on sale now!
