Get ready for a night of fun, frolics and frivolity in this all new 40th anniversary production of Richard O’Brien’s classic Rocky Horror Show

The coveted role of Frank N Furter is played by Craig McLachlan, fresh from shooting the title role in the second series of ABC TV’s top rating drama series The Doctor Blake Mysteries. Playing the roles of Janet and Brad, the naïve young couple caught up in a situation they don’t understand, are musical theatre favourites Christie Whelan Browne (A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum, Shane Warne The Musical) and Tim Maddren (Hi 5, The Addams Family). Reprising his role as Riff Raff, Frank’s loyal handyman, which he played in New Zealand and the UK is Kristian Lavercombe, while his sister Magenta is played by Erika Heynatz, who was nominated for a Helpmann Award for her debut musical theatre role in Legally Blonde.

Columbia, the groupie in Frank’s entourage, is played by Ashlea Pyke (Legally Blonde), and Eddie and Dr Scott are played by Nicholas Christo (My Fair Lady). In his first leading role as Frank’s creation Rocky is played by Brendan Irving (An Officer and a Gentleman). The Phantoms are played by Vincent Hooper (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels), Luigi Lucente (Wicked), Meghan O’Shea (A Chorus Line) and Angela Scundi (Spring Awakening), while the Swing/Dance Captain is played by James Maxfield (A Chorus Line).

Ready to thrill you with its frothy fun and naughty moments, Rocky Horror Show is the boldest bash of them all! 

So, ladies and gents, sharpen those stilettos for the rockiest ride of your life!

"Celebrating 40 years of success." Daily Telegraph

"It rocks! A truly enduring and endearing masterpiece." Daily Star Sunday

"Filled with irresistible hum-along pop songs, delightfully silly dialogue and some of the most outrageous and engrossing characters you will see on stage!" The Times

Be warned, this show has rude parts!
Recommended for ages 15+

I was there to watch Rocky Horror expecting to see a great performance but I was bitterly disappointed, Craig McLaughlin was pathetic in looks and sound. The professor in the wheelchair had an Australian accent instead of a German one. I really thought the whole thing was very amateur. I am a massive fan of Rocky Horror and I think this shoe destroyed it. Brad and Janet were very good in the show

World class performance. Brilliant entertainment. Craig was fantastic, Tim Curry would be proud. Drawback: American accent for Dr Scott; character type cast for Magenta not accurate.

Both of us thoroughly enjoyed the show, I had never seen before but would go again in a flash. Craig brought his own style to it.
