Forever Young at Nottingham Playhouse

IT is the end of an era as the well-loved musical comedy Forever Young comes to Nottingham Playhouse for its third and final time.

Set in a nursing home for retired actors, a group of aged panto performers are determined to prove that it’s not all behind them with a host of classic routines, athletic dancing and a rock ‘n’ roll sing-along.

The show was written by Swiss writer and director Erik Gedeon and it became a cult hit in Hamburg, Germany where it is known as The Thalia Vista Social Club.

Director Giles Croft said: “We’re delighted to be bringing Forever Young back one last time in Nottingham. It’s a funny and touching show which has seen audience members return for repeat viewings. What we’ve found over the years is that there are themes in the show around the comic and tragic aspects of growing old disgracefully and the memories bound up in music we love, which resonate with audiences of all ages, and it just makes them want to come back for more.”

Forever Young runs from tonight until 10th March. For details or to book tickets call (0115) 941 9419 or visit www.nottinghamplayhouse.co.uk. Follow the conversation on Twitter at #foreveryoung.
