It’s astounding, time is fleeting – The Rocky Horror Show is celebrating 50 entertaining years with shows at Theatre Severn in Shrewsbury, and audiences are invited to do the Time Warp again.

Richard O’Brien’s legendary rock’n’roll musical celebrates 50 years of non-stop partying with a special anniversary production coming to Shropshire Council’s Theatre Severn from Monday 6 March to Saturday 11 March 2023.

The Rocky Horror Show is the story of two college kids – Janet, and her fiance Brad. When, by a twist of fate, their car breaks down outside a creepy mansion whilst on their way to visit their former college professor, they meet the charismatic Dr Frank’n’Furter. It is an adventure they’ll never forget, filled with fun, frolics, frocks, and frivolity.

Directed by Christopher Luscombe, The Rocky Horror Show is ready to thrill with fun and naughty moments, and features timeless classics including Sweet Transvestite, Damn It Janet, and of course, the pelvic-thrusting show-stopping Time Warp.

The Rocky Horror Show writer Richard O’Brien said:-

“To be celebrating 50 years is beyond my wildest expectations – from the humble beginnings back in 1973 at the Royal Court Theatre in London. The fact that The Rocky Horror Show continues to delight audiences as it tours the UK 50 years on is simply amazing. The Rocky Horror Show is one of Britain’s most performed and beloved musicals of all time”.

The Rocky Horror Show is a guaranteed party for audiences. It famously combines science fiction, horror, comedy and music, while encouraging audience participation; meaning getting dressed-up in the most outrageous fancy dress but, be warned, this show does have its rude parts.
