Re­turn to the For­bid­den Planet is com­ing to the Wy­combe Swan from Mon­day, Fe­bru­ary 16 un­til Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 21 a quar­ter of a cen­tury af­ter it first blasted onto the stage.

With a cast of ac­tor mu­si­cians, a mad sci­en­tist and a huge green ten­ta­cled mon­ster, plus su­per­star Brian May ap­pear­ing via video pro­jec­tion, en­ter­tain­ment is guar­an­teed.

The show is fun for all the fam­ily and tick­ets are ex­pected to sell out fast. AF­TER its science-fic­tion-spoof­mu­si­cal trip to Skid Row with Lit­tle Shop of Hor­rors and the epic stage pro­duc­tion of the iconic mu­si­cal Grease, this sea­son Wy­combe Swan’s Youth Theatre presents a new pro­duc­tion of the great­est ever 80s mu­si­cal Foot­loose from Fri­day, Fe­bru­ary 20 to 22.

When Ren and his aunt move from Chicago to the small farm­ing town of Bomont, Ren is pre­pared for the ad­just­ment to his new high school.

What he isn’t pre­pared for are the lo­cal laws, in­clud­ing ‘No danc­ing of any kind is al­lowed at any time any­where within the town lim­its of Bomont’, en­forced by Bomont’s lo­cal preacher un­re­lent­ing on ex­er­cis­ing con­trol over the town’s youths.

When the Rev­erend’s re­bel­lious daugh­ter Ariel sets her heart on Ren, her boyfriend tries to sab­o­tage Ren’s rep­u­ta­tion and many of the lo­cals are ea­ger to be­lieve the worst about the new kid and his danc­ing shoes.

Break­ing ev­ery taboo, Ren brings dance back to the heart of a town held back by the mem­ory of a tragedy.

With an ex­plo­sive 80s score fea­tur­ing the hits Hold­ing Out for a Hero, Let’s Hear it for the Boy and of course the ti­tle track Foot­loose, the re­turn of Wy­combe Swan’s Youth Theatre is go­ing to be toe-tap­pingly bril­liant.

A cast of 30 lo­cal young peo­ple play a host of com­edy char­ac­ters who are in­ter­twined into Ren’s life for the 22nd Youth Theatre pro­duc­tion fol­low­ing the suc­cess of Our House, The Lion, the Witch and The Wardrobe, The Wiz­ard of Oz.

Af­ter a suc­cess­ful sum­mer sea­son per­for­mance of Grease to sold-out au­di­ences, this fresh and up­beat pro­duc­tion of Foot­loose prom­ises to be more spec­tac­u­lar than ever be­fore.
