On a stormy night, Brad Majors and his fiancée, Janet Weiss - a wholesome, innocent, love-struck couple - set out to visit their old professor. But this night will turn out to be one they will never forget. A flat-tire forces them to seek help at the castle of the mysterious Dr. Frank 'N' Furter, a genius scientist with an insatiable libido and a strange castle full of characters. Brad and Janet are immediately sucked into the scientist's latest experiment. The adventures of the evening will cause Brad and Janet to question everything they thought they knew about themselves and their desires. A homage to classic science fiction movies with an unforgettable rock'n'roll score, The Rocky Horror Show is a hilariously delicious ride that will have the whole audience changing into wild and untamed things.
An energetic and sensuous retelling of a cult classic, the Alchemy Theatre production of The Rocky Horror Show includes all your favourite audience participation props, a full 6 piece live band and stars Tiana Swan as Dr. Frank 'N'Furter, the manic and insatiable scientist who plays host to our innocent couple. The young lovers are played by Ryan Waechter as Brad Majors and Gina Foster as Janet Weiss. But Frank 'N'Furter is not alone in his castle, Emma Ciprian and Annastasia Brown play Magenta (The Help) and Columbia (The Groupie) respectively. Alchemy is excited to announce that the nefarious butler Riff-Raff will be played by local Vancouver burlesque superstar Draco Muff-boi. But just what has Frank 'N'Furter been concocting in his lab? That would be the naive Adonis Rocky, played by Michael Gnansounou. Casey Por appears as Eddie, the last plaything the good doctor got bored with, who is also the nephew of Dr. Everett Scott, played by Kazz Leskard. Aiding in the party atmosphere are the phantoms, played by, David Borja, Courtney Dugan, Jayka Murphy, and Jared White. The show is narrated by Bobby Magee as The Criminologist.

About Alchemy Theatre
Alchemy Theatre Ensemble is an innovative, emergent theatre group, and the amalgamation of the talents and dedication of a group of young actors from across the Lower Mainland. Having met while working together on the Vagabond Players' production of Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet), the group created something magical -and it wasn't just the magic on the stage. This production brought together a pool of talented actors whose chemistry was undeniable, and who were drawn together through their mutual desire to produce alternative theatrical works as well as old classics with a new spin.
After officially forming their own theatre group in the spring of 2014, Alchemy Theatre staged their inaugural summer theatre production of Twelfth Night at The Bernie Legge Theatre, a befitting choice since this is where Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet)was performed. This year they are shaking it up with a sexy and high energy spin on Richard O'Brien's cult classic: The Rocky Horror Show. Showcasing new and returning Alchemy members and starting a new tradition of ground-breaking and exciting theatre.
Alchemy Theatre is the operating names of Alchemy Theatre Society, a registered not for profit organization in the province of British Colombia.
