Age Suitability


Back to the Future is arguably a pop culture phenomenon that stands the test of time till today. This classic time travel motion picture had been a cultural icon in the ‘80s; the musical aspires to bring a sense of nostalgia for that generation and introduce the newer generations to this gem of a story.

The writer Bob Gale believed that the story would make a great musical and could be re-told on stage in a brand new way. This Sci-Fi story delves into time travel exploring two generations, the ‘80s, and the ‘50s. The set by Tim Hatley, two-time Olivier and Tony award winner, transports you back in time. The makeup, costumes, and music mesmerize and completely suck you into the world of the musical.

The Story

The story is set in the 80s, where a young boy McFly accidentally goes back in time, to the 50s, in a time-travelling car! He meets the younger version of the scientist who invented the machine and must repair the damage he causes by tampering with time. The situation goes downhill when he meets his parents’ younger self and sabotages the chances of his own birth. The scientist, Dr Emmett, must devise a way to set things right and get McFly back to the future to avoid the catastrophic repercussions of time travel.
