A group of oldies show they can still rock out in Forever Young, a feel-good musical being staged at Madrid's Teatro Compac Gran Via.

Running until April 24th 2011, the production features seven young actors playing the part of themselves in 40 years' time.

But age has not dimmed the spirit of their characters and the group performs a selection of international hits, such as Walk on the Wild Side, Smells Like Teen Spirit and the titular song.

Forever Young was originally written by Erik Gedeon and has been staged at Hamburg's Thalia Theatre for nine consecutive seasons.

Admission ranges from 19 up to 38 (£16.60 to £33.25) depending on where people want to sit.

The performance begins at 20:30 local time from Tuesday to Thursday, 21:00 on Friday, 19:00 and 22:00 on Saturday and 18:00 on Sunday.

Anyone travelling to the theatre by Metro should alight at Callao or Plaza de Espana. offers a huge variety of Madrid hotels that may appeal to fans of musicals, including the Westin Palace Madrid.
