Richard O’Brien’s
World Famous Rock and Roll Musical
Returns to Perth from 17 Feb
A Guaranteed Party!

Producers Howard Panter, John Frost and Torben Brookman today announced that the world’s favourite rock and roll musical would return to Australia in a fresh new production next year, with Craig McLachlan again donning Frank N Furter’s legendary fishnet stockings in his Helpmann Award-winning role.

Audiences and critics alike were won over by Craig’s exuberant portrayal of the mad scientist. The Morning Bulletin said, “Craig McLachlan is absolutely fabulous. He’s cheeky and owns the stage whenever he’s on it. His voice is powerful and he oozes sex and charm”, while the Herald Sun said, “McLachlan is audacious and ostentatiously camp.” The Age claimed, “McLachlan powers through and lets it all hang out – shades of Tim Curry.”

The Rocky Horror Show is a true classic and one of theatre’s most endearing and outrageously fun shows. 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.

So give yourself over to absolute pleasure, and let’s do the Time Warp again.
