Rocky Horror Show has been a cult favorite for over 30 years, and is now making its way to Theater On The Park. The story follows Brad Majors and Janet Weiss, who find themselves lost on a cold and rainy late November evening. Seeking a phone at a nearby castle, Brad and Janet discover a group of strange and outlandish people, who are holding an Annual Transylvanian Convention. Brad and Janet are quickly engulfed into the world of Dr. Frank-N-Furter, as he holds court over his band of jesters, but soon the merriment takes a more sinister (and comical) turn: all of this in a madcap musical ripe with festive singing and dancing.

 “…this deliberately kitschy rock-n-roll sci-fi gothic romp is more fun than ever”

–Samuel French, Inc.

A musical that deals with mutating identity and time warps, which has become one of the most mutated, time-warped phenomena in show business”

–New York Times

“A socko, wacko, weirdo rock concert.”

–WNBC-TV

Parental Advisory: Due to adult situations and content the play may not be suitable for children under 12 years of age.
