The Rocky Horror Show

The 2014 Australian tour of Richard O’Brien’s The Rocky Horror Show kicks off tonight at a Gala Premiere at the Lyric Theatre, QPAC, Brisbane attended by the writer and composer Richard O’Brien.
The Brisbane season will be followed by seasons at the Crown Theatre, Perth in February, the Festival Theatre, Adelaide in March, and the Comedy Theatre, Melbourne in April.
The talented and extraordinary cast is led by television and theatre star Craig McLachlan in the coveted role of Frank N Furter, alongside musical theatre favourites Christie Whelan Browne as Janet, Tim Maddren as Brad, Kristian Lavercombe as Riff Raff and Erika Heynatz as Magenta.
Ashlea Pyke plays Columbia, Eddie and Dr Scott are played by Nicholas Christo, Rocky is Brendan Irving and the Narrator is played by Tony Farrell. Completing the cast are Vincent Hooper, Luigi Lucente, James Maxfield, Meghan O’Shea and Angela Scundi.
“We are thrilled to have found the perfect cast for the 40th Anniversary Australian tour of this much loved iconic musical,” said producers Howard Panter and John Frost. “We thought audiences would love to do the Time Warp again with these wonderful performers, and with ticket sales going through the roof in every city, we’ve been proved right. Previews have been sold out, and the audiences have given themselves over to absolute pleasure. If you have voyeuristic intentions, you know what to do – buy a ticket before it’s sold out, and before madness takes its toll.”
The Rocky Horror Show is a true classic and one of theatre’s most endearing and outrageously fun shows. It opened at London’s Royal Court Theatre on June 19, 1973, quickly developing a cult following, and was adapted into the 1975 film The Rocky Horror Picture Show, which has the longestrunning
release in film history. This iconic brand holds a unique place in theatre history, a show which has defied the decades and continued to grow in popularity. In 2010 the music of Rocky Horror was showcased in the smash hit TV show Glee, seen by over 20 million people worldwide. Rocky Horror
even has its own postage stamp.
Millions of people all over the world have and continue to see productions of The Rocky Horror Show and sung along to classics like Sweet Transvestite, Dammit Janet, I Can Make You A Man, Touch-a Touch-a Touch Me, Over At The Frankenstein Place and of course The Time Warp.
