Lakewood Theatre Company Presents THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW
Lakewood Theatre Company continues its 67th season of live theatre with the out-of-this-world musical The Rocky Horror Show. Featuring music, lyrics and book by Richard O'Brien, this stage version is the inspiration for the iconic classic film, The Rocky Horror Picture Show. When an innocent young couple stumbles upon a mansion in the middle of a storm, they find they're in for the ride of their lives when they discover that the owner of the house is the mad scientist Dr. Frank 'N' Furter! A loving homage to the classic B sci-fi film and horror genres with an irresistible rock'n'roll score. The Rocky Horror Show is a hilarious, wild romp that no audience will soon forget.

The Story: One dark and stormy night, Brad Majors (Colin Stephen Kane) and his fiancée, Janet Weiss (Christine Greenhalgh) - a wholesome, well-behaved, utterly normal young couple in love - innocently set out to visit an old professor to celebrate their new engagement. A turn of misfortune changes their lives forever when a thunderstorm and a flat-tire force them to seek help at the castle of Dr. Frank 'N' Furter (Norman Wilson), a transvestite scientist with a manic genius and insatiable libido. Brad, Janet and Frank 'N' Furter's cohorts become swept up into the scientist's latest experiment, leading Brad and Janet to question everything they've known about themselves, each other, love and lust.
