The Rocky Horror Show - Three Extra Shows For Brisbane!

Producers Howard Panter, John Frost and GWB Entertainment today announced that due to overwhelming demand they will be adding three additional shows to the Brisbane season.

The Rocky Horror Show which has just re-opened the refurbished Festival Theatre at the Adelaide Festival Centre is set to play QPAC from 17 January for a strictly limited season before heading to the Crown Theatre, Perth from 17 February and Her Majesty’s Theatre, Melbourne from 13 July.

“During the Brisbane run Wednesday’s will now have an added 1.30pm matinee performance - so if you haven’t already, now is the time to give yourself over to absolute pleasure!” said the Producers.

Leading the cast is television and theatre star Craig McLachlan, donning Frank N Furter’s legendary fishnet stockings in his Helpmann Award-winning role. Joining Craig will be Cameron Daddo playing the Narrator, Kristian Lavercombe who astounded audiences in the 2014/5 tour as Riff Raff, musical theatre favourites Amanda Harrison as Magenta, Nadia Komazec as Columbia and Brendan Irving as Rocky, alongside Adam Rennie as Eddie and Dr Scott. Playing the roles of Brad and Janet, the naïve young couple caught up in a situation they don’t understand, are Rob Mallett and Michelle Smitheram. The ensemble cast includes Bianca Baykara, Ross Chisari, Hollie James, Hayley Martin, Stephen McDowell and Geoffrey Winter.

“STILL THE FUNNIEST AND SEXIEST SHOW AROUND”London Evening Standard

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 longest- running 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.

Millions of people all over the world have and continue to see productions of The Rocky Horror Show and sing 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.
