Auditions: Return to the Forbidden Planet

Website URL KTK Productions

Fasten your seatbelts, return your tray tables to the upright position and prepare to blast off!

The Olivier-award winning musical “Return to the Forbidden Planet” features the many works of Shakespeare aligned with a fabulous rock ’n’ roll score to create a fun-filled, jiving-in-the-aisles musical.

Loosely based on Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” and the sci-fi classic film “Forbidden Planet”, “Return to the Forbidden Planet” finds a spaceship, helmed by Captain Tempest, making an emergency landing on the uncharted planet D’illyria. The only residents there are the mad scientist, Doctor Prospero, his daughter, Miranda, and their robot, Ariel. They were banished into hyperspace when Miranda was just a baby, and she has known no other world than this.

Featuring rock ’n ’roll hits of the 50s and 60s (“Great Balls of Fire”, “The Monster Mash”,
“Good Vibrations” and others), a B-movie atmosphere, and dialogue in iambic pentameter, “Return to the Forbidden Planet” is Shakespeare’s unwritten rock ’n’ roll masterpiece. Throw in a roller-skating robot, unrequited love, and a scary space monster,and you’ve got one groovy show!

Auditions will be on Sunday, January 12 from 2 to 6, with Callbacks on Tuesday, January 14 at 6:30. Rehearsals would start January 19, and be on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

For auditions, prepare 16 to 32 bars of a song in the style of the show or a rock song. Callbacks will consist of readings from the script and singing from the score. There are roles for six males, six females and one male or female. Show dates are March 13-15 and 20-22.
