“The Rocky Horror Show” is a cult classic musical that combines science fiction, horror, and outrageous humor in a satirical tribute to mid-20th-century B-movie horror and science fiction films. The story follows the innocent and newly engaged Brad and Janet, who find themselves stranded during a storm and seek shelter in the eerie mansion of Dr. Frank-N-Furter, a mad scientist from another planet. Inside, they encounter a bizarre and lively cast of characters, including the rock-and-roll loving, leather-clad Eddie, and the newly created muscleman, Rocky Horror. As the night progresses, Brad and Janet’s perception of reality is turned upside down in a whirlwind of eccentricity, music, and dance.

This iconic show, featuring memorable songs like “Time Warp” and “Sweet Transvestite,” promises a thrilling and unique theatrical experience. Come be a part of this audacious adventure that celebrates individuality, freedom, and the joy of breaking conventional boundaries!
