The Magic School Bus is heading to outer space and young theater goers are invited to go along for the ride! Theatreworks USA presents its new original musical “The Magic School Bus – Lost in the Solar System” at Mercer County Community College’s (MCCC’s) Kelsey Theatre Saturday, May 4 at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is located on the college's West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.

Return to Forbidden Planet - Kelsey Theatre

Saturday May 4, 2019
8:00 PM

A spaceship with Captain Tempest at the helm makes an emergency landing on the uncharted planet of D’Illyria. The only residents are the mad scientist Dr. Prospero, his daughter, Miranda, and their retro robot, Ariel. They were banished into hyperspace when Miranda was just a baby, and she has known no other world than this one. This tale of unrequited love, a scary space monster, dialogue in iambic pentameter, and lots of fun songs all adds up to one groovy show! Loosely based on Shakespeare’s The Tempest and the 1956 sci-fi film “Forbidden Planet,” the show parodies 1950s sci fi, while paying homage to Shakespeare and much-loved rock ’n roll classics such as “Great Balls of Fire,” “The Monster Mash” and “Good Vibrations,” among others.

Tickets are $20 for adults, $18 for seniors, and $16 for students/children and may be purchased online at www.KelseyTheatre.net or by calling the Kelsey Box Office at 609-570-3333. Kelsey Theatre is wheelchair accessible, with free parking next to the theater. For a complete listing of adult and children's events, visit the Kelsey website or call the box office for a brochure.
