About The Rocky Horror Show

One fateful night, Brad Majors and his fiancée, Janet Weiss — a wholesome, well-behaved, utterly normal young couple in love — innocently set out to visit an old professor. A thunderstorm and a flat tire force them to seek help at the castle of Dr. Frank ’N’ Furter. Brad, Janet, and Frank’ N’ Furter’s cohorts are swept up into the scientist’s latest experiment. The night’s misadventures will cause Brad and Janet to question everything they’ve known about themselves, each other, love and lust. An homage to the classic B sci-fi film and horror genres with a rock’n’roll score, The Rocky Horror Show is a musical ride that no audience will soon forget.
