Ready to thrill you with fun and naughty moments, Richard O’Brien’s legendary rock ‘n’ roll musical, THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW returns to the UK in 2022 as part of a sell-out worldwide tour, having been seen by over 30 million theatregoers.
Directed by Christopher Luscombe and featuring timeless classics, including ‘Sweet Transvestite’, ‘Damn it Janet’, and of course, the pelvic-thrusting ‘Time Warp’.
The Rocky Horror Show is the story of two squeaky clean college kids – Brad and his fiancee Janet. When by a twist of fate, their car breaks down outside a creepy mansion whilst on their way to visit their former college professor, they meet the charismatic Dr Frank’n’Furter. It is an adventure they’ll never forget, filled with fun, frolics, frocks, and frivolity.
