Rocky Horror makes Liverpool Playhouse date this Christmas


The Rocky Horror Show will be over at the Liverpool Playhouse this Christmas.

The UK touring production of the hugely popular cult classic stage spectacular will spend four weeks at the Williamson Square theatre as its seasonal show.

It runs from December 3 to January 4, and tickets cost £11-£50.

Previous Christmas shows at the Playhouse in recent years have included Fantastically Great Women Who Changed the World, SIX the Musical and The Woman in Black.

The Rocky Horror Show was created by Richard O’Brien, who played Riff Raff in its earliest stage incarnations half-a-century ago as well as in the 1975 film version The Rocky Horror Picture Show, which also starred Warrington-born Tim Curry as ‘sweet transvestite’ Dr Frank-N-Furter, Susan Sarandon as Janet and Meat Loaf as Eddie.

Celebrating the shlocky horror B-movies of O’Brien’s childhood, it tells the story of strait-laced sweethearts Brad and Janet whose car breaks down on a stormy night, leaving them seeking shelter in the eerie mansion owned by transvestite scientist Dr Frank-N-Furter where they meet a house full of weird and wild characters.

The rock ‘n’ roll musical features songs including Sweet Transvestite, Over at the Frankenstein Place, Dammit Janet and The Time Warp, and has been seen by more than 30 million people worldwide since it opened upstairs at London's Royal Court Theatre in 1973.

The touring show is directed by Christopher Luscombe. Casting for the Liverpool dates is yet to be announced.

The Rocky Horror Show comes to the Liverpool Playhouse from December 3-January 4. Tickets HERE
