By Bob Carlton
Presented by Durham School
This Olivier Award-winning musical is landing at Gala Durham. Bob Carlton’s ingenious show splices plotlines from The Tempest with a 1950s sci-fi movie, the Forbidden Planet, as well as drawing dialogue from other Shakespeare plays and music from various rock ‘n’ roll hits.
Whether you are a fan of the Bard of Avon or the Beach Boys, there is something in this foot-tapping seat dancing musical for you.
This production is produced and performed by Durham School and follows a long line of successful musical performances at Gala Durham (Grease, Oliver!), The Luce Theatre (Billy Elliott) and the Tyne Opera House (Disney’s Aladdin).
Return to the Forbidden Planet by Bob Carlton, Inspired by the motion picture “Forbidden Planet” courtesy of Turner Entertainment Co. This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International. All authorised performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
