Auditions for the upcoming Stageworks Northwest production of “Return to the Forbidden Planet” will be held this Saturday, starting at 2 pm at the Longview Theatre on Commerce Avenue. “Return to the Forbidden Planet” melds Shakespeare with 1960’s sci-fi films, making for a campy comedy that harkens back to the B-movies at the drive-in. Three men and two women will be cast; you’ll be asked to sing a pop song from the 50’s or 60’s, along with readings from the script. The show will run in late April and in May. Learn more on the Stageworks Northwest web page.
