'Goodness Gracious Great Balls of Fire' its Oxted Operatic Society's Autumn 2011 show Return to the Forbidden Planet by Bob Carlton, based very loosely on the 1956 film Forbidden Planet which was a sci-fi version of William Shakespeare's The Tempest.

On a stormy night way back in the winter of 2009, mad scientist Doctor Prospero worked late in his laboratory, aided only by his wife, Gloria, as he developed the elusive formula with which he would change the world. The apparently faithful Gloria, however, duped him and sent him off into hyper-space in an old spacecraft. Unknown to Gloria, her infant daughter, Miranda, slumbered peacefully in the craft and was now catapulted light years into the future in her father's company. Fifteen years later, a routine survey flight under the command of the chisel-jawed Captain Tempest leaves earth's orbit with a new Science Officer aboard - a hard and bitter woman. As a shower of meteorites hits the ship, the Science Officer flees, and the craft is pulled inexorably towards the plant D'Illyria - the Forbidden Plant. Now the adventure begins .....

This fun-filled show is great entertainment with musical rock 'n' roll hits such as :- Wipeout, Good Vibrations, Why Must I be a Teenager in Love, Young Girl, She's Not There, All Shook Up, Who's Sorry Now, Only the Lonely, Tell her, Shake Rattle and Roll, The Young Ones, Hey Mr Spaceman and Monster Mash.
