Fugard Theatre Extends ROCKY HORROR SHOW Through January 2014
The Fugard Theatre's recent announcement that their production of Richard O'Brien's THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW would extend to the end of October has resulted in a further massive demand for tickets and the Fugard has now extended the production, for one final time, through 12 January 2014 to run through the holiday season.
THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW, directed by Matthew Wild, has taken the Mother City by storm and has received rave reviews across the board playing to full houses each night since opening on the 10th July. The Fugard's Executive Director Daniel Galloway said "Never in our wildest dreams did we think that our ROCKY would create this sort of response form our audiences. We knew it would be popular but we are literally, night after night, overwhelmed by the incredible response. This will be one seriously hot ticket for the Holiday Season and we expect the New Year's evening show to sell out in a flash!".
The superb all-South African cast of THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW is led by Brendan van Rhyn as Dr Frank-N-Furter, Paul du Toit as Brad and Jenny Stead as Janet. Andrew Laubscher's Riff Raff has received huge acclaim. The live onstage band accompanies the cast every night as they belt out the iconic hit songs "Science Fiction/Double Feature", "Dammit, Janet!", "Sweet Transvestite" and "The Time Warp" and has audiences rocking in their seats night after night.
Participation packs, for sale at R20 each, are a huge hit and make for even more fun as theatre goers throw confetti, wave glowsticks and snap their plastic gloves as instructed by the Narrator. Dressing up for every performance has proven very popular amongst audience members - with fishnets and feather boas a plenty! There are official dress up nights on the 6 and 20 September; 18 October; 15 and 29 November; 6, 13, 20, 27 and 31st December; and 10 January, where the best dressed audience member (judged at the end of the season) can stand a chance to win a weekend away for two courtesy of Travel With Flair. So get a group together, plan those outfits and book your tickets today! Ever wanted to see your boss in fishnets, or your Financial Director in leather? NOW IS YOUR CHANCE! With the show extending through the holiday season audiences are invited to make their end-of-year office party bookings as soon as possible. The New Year's eve performance will start at 21h35 ensuring that the audience counts the New Year in with the full company as the curtain call takes place! This is sure to be the hottest New Year's Eve ticket in Cape Town and will sell out fast - so get your group together and book today!
