The Story

Brad and Janet are an innocent young couple who run into some car trouble and decide to ask the inhabitants of a creepy castle for some help. Little do they know one of those inhabitants, Dr. Frank N. Furter, is bent on world domination and creating the “perfect man.” They are soon to be dragged into his unusual and nefarious plans in this campy and fun classic rock musical send-up of 1950s science fiction films. Featuring a rock soundtrack, this unique musical will both involve the audience and whip them into a frenzy.
