Give yourself over to absolute pleasure this fall. An homage to the science fiction B-movie genre, The Rocky Horror Show tells the tale of the squeaky clean Brad and Janet and their unwitting foray into the sultry world of Dr. Frank N. Furter, the mad scientist with a killer set of heels. This isn’t any ordinary night in the castle though—it’s the unveiling of Frank’s latest and greatest creation. The action will explode off the stage at this rock n’ roll party as Brad and Janet are introduced to Rocky, a slew of Transylvanians, and of course, the Time Warp. And even our illustrious audience will be some of the featured guests at this not-to-be-missed soiree!

The original London production of The Rocky Horrow Show, directed by Jim Sharman, premiered at the Royal Court Theatre on 19 June 1973 and won the 1973 Evening Standard Theatre Award for Best Musical. Later transferring to several other locations in London, the show ran for a total of 2,960 performances. On March 10, 1975, The Rocky Horrow Show opened on Broadway at the Belasco Theatre, starring Tim Curry and featuring Meatloaf and “Ritz” O’Brien.

Directed by Christopher Ashley, the revival ran for 437 performances.
In this cult classic, sweethearts Brad and Janet, stuck with a flat tire during a storm, discover the eerie mansion of Dr. Frank-N-Furter. As their innocence is lost, Brad and Janet meet a houseful of wild characters, including a rocking biker and a creepy butler. Through elaborate dances and rock songs, Frank-N-Furter unveils his latest creation: a muscular man named “Rocky.”
