The Rocky Horror Show is one of the best known and most popular musicals in history. Since premiering at the Royal Court Theatre in London in 1973, this fabulous musical has gone on to worldwide acclaim in more than 30 countries. In 1975, its fame was further enhanced with the release of the film The Rocky Horror Picture Show, attracting a whole new audience and has become the longest-running release in film history.
The Rocky Horror Show is a humorous take on old science fiction and horror movies seen in the early 1970's. It tells the story of newly engaged couple Brad Majors and Janet Weiss, caught in a storm and stumbling across the home of a mad transvestite scientist, Dr Frank N. Furter. He unveils his latest creation, an artificial Frankenstein-style monster. It's a fully grown, physically perfect muscle man named Rocky Horror, complete with blond hair and a tan.
You can catch the world's favourite rock and roll musical again now in Australia, with a fresh new production in 2018 starring Craig McLachlan as Frank N Furter. Ready to thrill you with its frothy fun and naughty moments, this is the boldest bash of them all, so sharpen those stilettos for the rockiest ride of your life. Follow squeaky-clean sweethearts Brad and Janet on an adventure they'll never forget.
Bursting at the seams with the timeless classics including 'Sweet Transvestite', 'Damn it Janet', and of course, the pelvic-thrusting 'Time Warp', Richard O'Brien's Rocky Horror Show is a non-stop party. The show is touring around Australia, with performances in Adelaide, Brisbane, Perth and Melbourne, although the role of narrator will be played by different people in each city.
