Rocky Horror Show at the Fugard Theatre
The timeless musical is back for another racy romp on stage in Cape Town
It’s time to whip out those wigs and brush up on the old ‘Time Warp’: the Fugard Theatre in Cape Town presents Richard O’Brien’s Rocky Horror Show as its 2013 winter musical production, from Wednesday, 10 July 2013 to Sunday, 12 January 2014.
The kitsch classic that’s run from stage to cinema and back to stage is a firm favourite of theatre fans the world over for its camp combination of comedy, horror and unforgettable music.
Brad and Janet need no introduction as the freshly engaged couple who happen on some car trouble. As a result, the unknowing duo stumble upon the home of Dr Frank N. Furter, a mad scientist and transvestite whose latest creation is the strange and wonderfully muscular Rocky Horror. A sexy, saucy adventure ensues, with hits like ‘Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch Me’, ‘Science Fiction/Double Feature’ and ‘Dammit Janet!’ peppering the performance with unforgettable melodies.
Produced by Eric Abraham and the Fugard Theatre, this local take on Richard O’ Brien’s Rocky Horror Show is directed by Matthew Wild, and the madcap gender-bending ensemble of actors and actresses is made up of an all South African cast.
Needless to say, a jump to the left and a step to the right (with your hands on your hips) will land you straight in the middle of this much loved adult musical. Don’t forget to dress the part, audience members are invited to get in full gear to support the play.
