THE latest production by the Worle Operatic and Dramatic Society (WODS) promises a blend of pulsating rock 'n' roll and Shakespearean wit.
Return To The Forbidden Planet is loosely based on Shakespeare's The Tempest. The plot revolves around the crew of a spacecraft led by lantern jawed Captain Tempest, which is mysteriously drawn to the planet D'lllyria, where a mad scientist, Prospero and his lovely daughter, Miranda, are marooned.
Unforgettable pop classics such as Great Balls of Fire and The Young Ones are woven into the story with choreographed dance numbers and eloquent prose.
WODS has gone high tech this year with a roller skating robot, pre-recorded video and a stunningly wicked set.
