THE Worle Operatic and Dramatic Society (WODS) will be staging a pulsating show of rock 'n' roll combined with Shakespearean wit at The Blakehay next week.

WODS performs to a consistently high standard with a predominately local cast which consists of a surprisingly varied age group.

Return To The Forbidden Planet is loosely based on Shakespeare's the Tempest and revolves around the crew of a spacecraft led by Captain Tempest. The spacecraft is mysteriously drawn to the planet D'lllyria, where a mad scientist, Prospero, and his lovely daughter, Miranda, are marooned.

Audiences will be wowed by a stunningly wicked set, unforgettable pop classics, wonderfully choreographed dance numbers and eloquent prose.

With high-tech direction from Bob Gibbons and musical direction from Ann Bond, the society promises a high octane performance with foot stomping entertainment on a stunningly wicked set.

WODS will stage the show at The Blakehay in Wadham Street, Weston, from April 23-25 at 7.30pm.

Tickets, priced £8.50 and £7.50 for concessions, are available from the box office on 01934 645493 or via www.worleoperatic.co.uk/tickets
