Name: Return to the Forbidden Planet
Date: June 13, 2018 - June 23, 2018
Inspired by the 1956 science fiction film "Forbidden Planet" and Shakespeare's "The Tempest," this jukebox musical is packed with rock 'n' roll classics such as Wipeout, Young Girl, Good Vibrations, Great Balls of Fire, and Gloria. Blast off on a routine flight and crash into the planet D'Illyria where a sci-fi version of The Tempest set to rock and roll golden oldies unfolds with glee. The planet is inhabited by a sinister scientist, Dr. Prospero; his delightful daughter Miranda; Ariel, a faithful robot on roller skates; and an uncontrollable monster, the product of Prospero's Id, whose tentacles penetrate the spacecraft. "Funky and offbeat" "This season's dark horse" "Unpretentious and fun" "Return to the Forbidden Planet" is presented by St. Norbert College Music Theatre in association with Play-by-Play Theatre.
