Blast off! on a routine flight as part of Captain Tempest’s intergalactic crew, but beware of the mad scientist Dr. Prospero and his uncontrollable space monsters. Return to the Forbidden Planet is an award winning “Best Musical” sci-fi spoof that rockets Shakespeare’s beloved characters from page to space as they crash into the planet D’llyria. Prepare to dance in the aisles as you jump on board and boldly go where no Shakespearian character has gone before….

Come ROCK OUT! for the Civic’s Spring 2018 Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) production of Return to the Forbidden Planet. Join the Civic’s Education Academy for this free opportunity for an OUT OF THIS WORLD EXPERIENCE!

BUT AUDITIONS TERRIFY ME!? I THINK I'M TOO SHY TO AUDITION!?! Have no fear! We disguise our auditions as a class so that everyone feels comfortable.
