About the Show

With a jump to the left...worlds collide in Richard O'Brien's musical-theatre masterpiece as camp sci-fi meets sexual exploration, glam-rock, and sensual daydreams to treasure forever. Join the clean-cut sweethearts Brad and Janet, who are on the way to visit an old college professor, as they run into car trouble on a dark and stormy night. When they seek help at a strange castle in the forest, they encounter Dr. Frank ‘N’ Furter in the midst of another maniacal experiment and end up having a night that they will never forget.


See the sensational musical that sparked an international phenomenon; this live performance with a full band and 15 performers is completed with audience call-outs, cascading toilet paper and an array of other audience participation props. This deliberately kitschy rock 'n' roll sci-fi gothic thriller is the most fun you will ever have in fish-nets!

Castle Rules & Etiquette

Wait, wait, wait.... In the world of "Don't Dream It, Be It" there are rules??? Well yes, to make sure everyone has a great time and is safe we have a few castle rules to follow:


Don't dream it, use It! Props Bags ($10.00 value) are included with the purchase of most ticket types and include everything you need to have the ultimate Rocky Horror experience. Props bags include:


  • Custom reusable tote bag

  • Bubble Blower

  • Newspaper

  • Noisemaker

  • Rubber Gloves

  • Playing Cards

  • Confetti

  • Time Warp Dance Step Bookmark

  • How-To Rocky Horror Guide

  • and more!


For our audience, performer and venue safety ONLY props from the official props bags may be brought into the venue! Bag checks will occur at the entrance to the venue and unauthorized props will be confiscated.


Don't get strung out by the way everyone looks! Dressing up is a big part of the Rocky Horror experience and it's no different for this version. It's not obligatory, of course, but it does add to the fun. Corsets, garter belts, fishnets, heels as high as you dare are all great options no matter your gender, just don't wear anything that will block the view of the people behind you!


We see you shiver for partici...(Say it!)...PATION! The Rocky Horror Show has a long tradition of audience participation and dancing. A whole subscript of talk-back lines has evolved: If you know the drill, or if inspiration strikes, feel free to join in. (Just remember, it's all in the timing.)


We'll remove the cause AND the symptom! Absolutely no throwing things at the stage! This is a live show and those are real people up there, plus the audience has paid good money to get hit with the props. Remember, if anything gets projected onto the stage, the show will be stopped and the perpetrator will be singing "I'm going home" in the parking lot.
