the rocky horror picture show

schonell theatre

Get ready to do the Time Warp again when The Rocky Horror Picture Show returns to the Schonell Theatre with live floor show.

The 1975 British film, starring Susan Sarandon and Tim Curry began its journey as a London stage musical before becoming the longest running cult film of all time.

A box office failure upon initial release, 20th Century Fox re-opened Rocky Horror at midnight in April 1976 and it found its audience.

People began attending the screenings in costume, and shouting out lines in response to the film dialogue. From this, the concept of a 'floorshow cast' began.

Over the years, this idea has developed with groups now performing during the screenings. In character and in costume, the casts perform a live lip-synch floorshow on the stage in front of the screen whilst the film plays.

Now, more than forty years later, audience members are still flocking to screenings of the film all over the world. Nothing can beat seeing the film with a live cast in costume, and with audience members singing-along and shouting audience participation lines in time with the film.

Need to know - This screening of The Rocky Horror Show will be accompanied by the infamous Cards 4 Sorrow floor show. This is a 15yrs+ event.
