Lewys Taylor will be playing the role of Damage Limitation Crew in Return To The Forbidden Planet at Upstairs At The Gatehouse Theatre.
Winner of the 1990 Olivier Award for Best New Musical, ‘Return to the Forbidden Planet’ is a rockin’ rollercoaster ride into the future. Join Captain Tempest and the crew of the Intergalactic Starship Albatross as they travel deep into hyperspace. What’s waiting for them?……a mad scientist, a secret formula, a scary monster and D’illyria – a planet not marked on their cosmic charts.
Loosely based on the 1950’s sci-fi film ‘Forbidden Planet’ (which itself was based on ‘The Tempest’) author Bob Carlton has created a riotous mix of Shakespeare, B movie Science Fiction and some of the biggest pop hits from the fifties and sixties.
Great Balls of Fire, Teenager in Love, Good Vibrations, Shake Rattle & Roll, She’s Not There, Wipe Out and twenty other monster songs will keep you rockin’ all nite long.
