The return of a cult classic

The Rocky Horror Show at the McPherson Playhouse

The Victoria On Stage Musical Theatre Society presents Richard O’Brien’s The Rocky Horror Show at the McPherson Playhouse from November 25 to December 4.

It’s a night no audience will soon forget. A cult classic. A freak show. The Rocky Horror Show is the story of well-behaved sweethearts Brad Majors (MJ Connelly) and Janet Weiss (Danielle Greschner), who become stranded one stormy night and seek refuge in an eerie, towering mansion owned by Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Jordan Holloway), an alien, moonstruck scientist with a manic genius and an insatiable libido.

The mansion’s colourful inhabitants—a rocking biker (Neil Croswell), a sinister butler (Brayden Lord), his sister Magenta (Emily Hunt), and Frank-N-Furter’s latest lab creation, a muscular man named Rocky (Dan Comeau)—test the couple’s innocence and transport them, seemingly, to an entirely different planet.

The production is a loving homage to the classic B-movie sci-fi and horror genres. With elaborate costumes and an unforgettable rock ‘n’ roll score, this gender-bending coming-of-age story of self-expression is more relevant than ever, with its theme, “Don’t dream it, BE

it.” All it takes is “a jump to the left.”

The show is directed by Hailey Christie-Hoyle, with music direction by Jeff Poynter and choreography by Emily Eymundson, and produced by Francesca Bitonti and Sue Pyke.

The Rocky Horror Show runs November 25-27 and December 2-3 at 7:30 pm, and December 4 at 2 pm. For more information, visit Tickets start at $25.25 and can be purchased at
