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.

In this show the society is welcoming newcomer Natalie Kessel who will play the leading role of Miranda.

Ray Bond will take on the role of Prospero, Leighton Cole will play Captain Tempest and Pete Tyrell will roller skate his robotic way through some tough routines.

The singers and dancers are promising a high octane performance, bringing foot stomping entertainment to the show.

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
