The Rocky Horror Show was originally an offbeat musical performed in a disused cinema in the 1970s. The setting suited the spirit of the piece which was inspired by classic horror, sci-fi movies of the 50s and Rock ‘n’ Roll

.

The story is loosely based on the Frankenstein story, and features a couple who, returning from a wedding, are stranded by a puncture in a storm. They take refuge at the nearby residence of a scientist and find themselves involved in an experience which changes the lives of all involved

.

The musical became a film which didn’t do much box office until an American cinema started showing it as a ‘late night double feature’ with the Mel Brooks classic ‘Young Frankenstein’, after which it became a cult.

Although British audiences, brought up on Pantomimes, were used to audience involvement,(and it is more common-place nowadays with juke-box musicals), at the time, a production where the audience could be involved through dressing up as the characters, a ‘heckle-script’ and use of props – newspapers, water-pistols and toilet roles, etc- at key moments - was a novelty. (It’s also what puts some theatres and cinemas off hosting the show !)

The show tours regularly but rarely reaches the Maidstone & Medway area (Chatham never recovered from its last visit in the 1980s), therefore your potential ‘local’ locations are Brighton and Bromley (also Canterbury occasionally. A full list of locations and dates can usually be found at  http://rockyhorror.co.uk/

Don’t dream it, be it in this selection of outfits inspired by the Show
