Bob Carlton's rock classic, "Return to the Forbidden Planet" at Tamalpais High School Little Theatre, Mill Valley.


Directed by Carl Jordan

Choreography by Stephen Beecroft

Music Directed by Amanda Morando

Band Directed by James Harman


This production presents our illustrious travelers in the future following in the footsteps of Shakespeare's "Tempest" as they return to a hidden planet populated by the intrepid Prospero.  All the action is set to the best music of The Animals, The Byrds, The Beach Boys and more.


Bob Carlton takes the crew through this futuristic Tempest with the strains of "Wipeout", "Telstar", "Good Vibrations", "She's Not There", "Pretty Woman", and "Great Balls of Fire".


The play first opened in Sydney in 1991.  The show ran Off Broadway from 1991 to 1992.  It opened in London in 1999 and won the Laurence Olivier award for "Best New Musical."  A revival production toured the UK in 2006 with the pre-recorded narrator being astrophysicist and guitarist from "Queen", Brian May.  Bob Carlton directed a new production in September, 2012, at the "Queen's Theatre, Hornchurch, Essex, UK.
