Right: Craig McLachlan with the 2014 cast
Craig McLachlan will again be donning Frank N Furter’s legendary fishnet stockings in his Helpmann Award-winning role in the Howard Panter, John Frost and Torben Brookman production of Richard O’Brien’s The Rocky Horror Show.
The show will re-open the refurbished Festival Theatre at the Adelaide Festival Centre from 28 December 2017, then play at QPAC, Brisbane from 18 January 2018, and the Crown Theatre, Perth from 17 February 2018.
“To say we are thrilled to dance the Time Warp across Australia again is an understatement,” said Howard Panter on behalf of the producers. “We’re often asked when everyone’s favourite rock and roll musical is returning, so it’s wonderful that the planets have aligned to bring Craig back to his award-winning role. This is sure to be an even wilder, funnier and sexier night out than ever before!”
The Rocky Horror Show is one of theatre’s most endearing and outrageously fun shows. It opened at London’s Royal Court Theatre on June 19, 1973, quickly developing a cult following, and was adapted into the 1975 film The Rocky Horror Picture Show, which has the longest- running release in film history.
Millions of people all over the world have and continue to see productions of The Rocky Horror Show and sing along to classics like Sweet Transvestite, Dammit Janet, I Can Make You A Man, Touch-a Touch-a Touch Me, Over At The Frankenstein Place and of course, The Time Warp.r.
