Who are you?

James Gray

What part do you play?

I play the part of Cookie, the ships cook.

Describe your character in 3 words.

Jealous little outcast

Why did you want to be in Return to the Forbidden Planet?

I love the 60’s music and Sci-Fi. Having not known the show previously, I thought it to be a very interesting combination.

What’s your favourite song in the show and why?

‘Go Now.” It carries so much emotion and brings a tear to my eye every time.

What has been your favourite thing about rehearsals?

Seeing all the different sections of the show coming together piece by piece.

Why should we go and buy tickets?

If they want to be entertained and taken out of this world (quite literally!!) then this is a must see show.
