Inspired by Science fiction and horror B movies, the rock 'n' roll musical tells the story of squeaky clean sweethearts Brad and Janet and their encounter with crazy transvestite scientist Dr. Frank-N-Furter and his latest muscular creation, Rocky Horror. The score is packed with fan favorite songs including "The Time Warp", "Sweet Transvestite" and "Dammit, Janet".

The Rocky Horror Show first appeared at the Royal Court Theatre in London in 1973 and following its success was later adapted into the film, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, featuring creator Richard O'Brien in the role of Riff Raff, Susan Sarandon as Janet and Tim Curry as Dr. Frank-N-Furter. The screen version boasted the longest running release in film history, which has helped to perpetuate the success of the stage production. The Rocky Horror Show has since taken the world by storm with productions taking place in over 30 countries.
