ABOUT THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW
One dark and stormy night, newly engaged couple, Brad Majors, and Janet Weiss, set out to begin their journey toward matrimonial bliss when a sudden blowout forces them down a path of domination, illumination, and sensual debauchery that ultimately leaves them searching for more than just help with a flat tire.
Dr. Frank-N-Furter and his band of merry misfits take you on a strange journey of love, lust, and the quest for ultimate satisfaction in this updated version of the 1975 broadway musical that inspired the cult film The Rocky Horror Picture Show. A parody tribute to the science fiction and horror B movies of the 1930s through early 1970s, this hilariously dark and foreboding musical invites you to leave your inhibitions at the door, and revel in the strange and absurd.
Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
