It’s back! The smash-hit musical comedy Forever Young makes its latest eagerly-awaited appearance at Nottingham Playhouse before heading off on tour.

The Nottingham Playhouse Theatre Company and Oldham Coliseum Theatre presentation can be seen at the venue from Thursday, January 29 to Saturday, February 7.

Written by Erik Gedeon, Forever Young has been adapted by Giles Croft and Stefan Bednarczyk and is set in the Nottingham Playhouse Home For Aging Thespians.

The times - and hips- may be tight, but in this nursing home for actors, a group of aged panto performers are determined to prove that it’s not all behind them.

A devastating, moving and hilarious look at getting on and letting it all hang out, Forever Young features a host of classic routines, surprisingly athletic dancing and a rock ‘n’ roll sing-along.

From Nirvana to Tom Jones, Aqua to Bob Dylan and Aretha Franklin to Gloria Gaynor, northing is off vocal limits…or off key.

Starring Playhouse panto favourites John Elkington and Rebecca Little, Forever Young is packed with laughter and great music.

Ticket details for Forever Young are available by calling the box office on 0115 9419419.
