Dereham Operatic Society Youth Theatre Company (DOSYTCo), which has a cast of actors, aged between nine and 18, will perform Return to the Forbidden Planet during April.

The musical is loosely based on Shakespeare's The Tempest and the 1956 sci-fi classic film Forbidden Planet and is set to a rock 'n' roll score.

It features hits of the '50s and '60s such as Great Balls of Fire, The Monster Mash and Good Vibrations and will be shown at Dereham Memorial Hall.

Return to the Forbidden Planet is on every evening at 7.30pm between April 10 and 13, plus a performance on the Saturday at 2.20pm.
