About the Musical

The musical comedy follows the adventure of newly engaged Brad and Janet. The prim-and-proper sweethearts run into tyre trouble on their way to visit their old college professor. They seek help at the castle of mad transvestite scientist Dr Frank N Furter, creator of a Frankenstein-like hunk named Rocky, “with blonde hair and a tan.”

Frank N Furter takes the wholesome couple on a naughty, sexy journey they will never forget.

The show mixes science fiction, horror B movie with a lot of sexiness to boot. The best part, of course, is the music that has enamoured audiences for decades. Sing along to classics such as Dammit Janet, Hot Patootie – Bless My Soul and Sweet Transvestite. Then, it’s time to do the pelvic thrust when they start doing  The Time Warp again.
