It has been performed worldwide in more than 30 countries in every continent and has been translated into more than 20 languages.

To celebrate the 40th anniversary, Christopher Luscombe created a new production for a year-long UK National Tour.

On the way to visit an old college professor, two clean cut kids, Brad Majors and his fiancée Janet Weiss, run into tyre trouble and seek help at the site of a light down the road. It's coming from the Frankenstein place, where Dr Frank'n'furter is in the midst of one of his maniacal experiments…

Follow squeaky-clean sweethearts Brad and Janet on an adventure they’ll never forget, with the scandalous Frank'n'Furter, rippling Rocky and vivacious Magenta.

Get ready for a night of fun, frolics and frivolity in this thrilling production of Richard O’Brien’s classic original script!.

Bursting at the seams with timeless classics, including Sweet Transvestite, Damn it Janet, and of course, the pelvic-thrusting Time Warp, Richard O’Brien’s Rocky Horror show is a non-stop party.e

It is at York Grand Opera House from Monday June 10 to Saturday June 15.
