This year’s Final Major Performance (FMP) to be performed by Neon Musical Theatre Company is ‘Return to the Forbidden Planet’.
Join Captain Tempest and his fearless crew on their journey into hyperspace… and beyond! Bob Carlton’s smash hit West End musical takes the 1956 film, with plot taken from Shakespeare’s The Tempest.
On a stormy night way back in the winter of 2009, mad scientist Doctor Prospero worked late in his laboratory, aided only by his wife, Gloria, as he developed the elusive formula with which he would change the world. The apparently faithful Gloria, however, duped him and sent him off into hyper-space in an old spacecraft. Unknown to Gloria, her infant daughter, Miranda, slumbered peacefully in the craft and was now catapulted light years into the future in her father’s company. Fifteen years later, a routine survey flight under the command of the chisel-jawed Captain Tempest leaves earth’s orbit with a new Science Officer aboard – a hard and bitter woman. As a shower of meteorites hits the ship, the Science Officer flees, and the craft is pulled inexorably towards the plant D’Illyria – the Forbidden Plant. The adventure begins…
This winner of the 1990 Olivier Award for Best Musical bursts with red hot rock and roll hits, including Heard it Through the Grapevine, Young Girl, Good Vibrations, Gloria, Great Balls of Fire, Good Vibrations, Teenager in Love, The Young Ones, The Monster Mash and many more. So fasten your seat belts, set your ray guns to stun and get ready for a cosmic adventure of meteoric proportions! This show will be a great night out for all the family! Audience participation is encouraged throughout the show!
