The Rocky Horror Show returns
Get ready to do the Time Warp!Enduring camp funfest The Rocky Horror Show is currently touring the UK in a new production, and will run until November 2019.
On the way to visit an old college professor, two clean cut kids, Brad Majors and his fiancée Janet Weiss, run into tyre trouble and head for help towards a light down the road. It is coming from the Frankenstein place, where Dr Frank’n’furter is in the midst of one of his maniacal experiments…
The musical is largely an affectionate homage to the American horror and science-fiction B-movies of the 1950s, with transvestite Dr Frank’n’furter trying to create the perfect man – complete with muscled torso, blond hair and a tan. It was written by actor Richard O’Brien in the early 70s – with the influence of rock and roll and glam rock evident in the music and style of the show. Dressing up in frocks and fishnets is an audience tradition, and the best-known song from the show is probably Time Warp.
The production will star Duncan James, Joanne Clifton, Stephen Webb and Ben Adams.
Destinations include Manchester, Sheffield, Torquay, Oxford, Southampton, Liverpool, Birmingham, Stoke-on-Trent, York, Bristol, Blackpool, Leeds, Nottingham and Richmond.
Duncan James and Stephen Webb are not appearing at all venues.
