A cast of community actors aged from 16 to over 60 will bring the musical Return To The Forbidden Planet to The Castle theatre in Wellingborough on Thursday.

The rock ‘n roll musical, which includes performances by a community band, is set in outer space and is described as a parody of Shakespeare’s work and ‘50s sci-fi films.

The show includes more than 30 cosmic classics by the likes of The Animals, The Beach Boys, Chuck Berry and Elvis.

Participants are working alongside a professional production team including director Matt Aston.

Return To The Forbidden Planet will run from Thursday, May 30 until Saturday, June 1. Tickets cost from £8.50. To book, call the box office on 01933 270007 or visit www.thecastle.org.uk.
