Forever Young

An Oldham Coliseum Theatre and Nottingham Playhouse Production

Prepare for a musical like no other. Forever Young is set in a particularly theatrical nursing home for actors, with a group of pensionable performers determined to prove that it’s not all behind them.

Showing that they’re still limber enough to perform panto routines and belt out songs from the likes of Nirvana to Aqua, this surreal slapstick filled musical comedy promises to be a night out to remember.
Filled with octogenarian spirit, Forever Young gives you a lesson in how to grow old disgracefully.
