A uniquely camp experience that has delighted audiences for decades is heading to the Congress Theatre when Richard O’Brien’s Rocky Horror Show returns to town to show us how to party.
Seeing is believing with this sassy musical and this latest tour features Steve Punt (Punt & Dennis) as The Narrator, S Club 7 star Paul Cattermole as Eddie/Dr Scott and Liam Tamne (The Voice) as Dr Frank N Furter.
The Rocky Horror Show tells the tale of love-birds Brad and Janet who get caught with a flat tyre in a terrible storm. Taking refuge in a nearby mansion, the home of Transvestite scientist Dr Frank N Furter, Brad and Janet are invited to meet the Dr Frank’s latest creation, Rocky.
Richard O’Brien’s Rocky Horror Show was first performed on 19 June 1973 at the Royal Court Theatre and has been performed worldwide for over 40 years in over 30 countries and translated into more than 20 languages. It was adapted to film in 1975 and most recently has been re-made for TV, starring the original Dr Frank N Furter Tim Curry as the Narrator and will be show in the US at Halloween.
