Auditions for "Return to the Forbidden Planet" will be held at 7 p.m. Monday and Tuesday at Lawrence Community Theatre, 1501 N.H.

The show is a campy blend of Shakespeare and the '50s movie "Forbidden Planet," which starred Walter Pidgeon, Anne Francis and Leslie Nielsen.

The show features such '50s rock 'n' roll tunes as "Great Balls of Fire," "Teenager in Love," "Who's Sorry Now" and "Good Vibrations."

Those auditioning should prepare a brief song, preferably in a rock 'n' roll style; an accompanist will be provided. Auditioners will be asked to read a scene from a script and to list all rehearsal conflicts.

The show will be directed by Mary Doveton, with music direction by J. Richard Walker. Rehearsals are scheduled from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays. Technical rehearsals will be April 10 and 11. Performances will be April 16-May 12.
