Don’t Dream it, Come Believe It.
Pieter Toerien and Howard Panter presents the legendary Musical Extravaganza, The Rocky Horror Show, coming to Cape Town later this year, and Johannesburg early in 2020, with Craig Urbani as the infamous Dr Frank’n’Furter, Kate Normington as the Narrator, with Rocky being played by Jarryd Nurden.
Recently announced by Pieter Toerien Productions, is that record-breaking actor playing the infamous Riff Raff, Kristian Lavercombe, will be joining the current South African Production, due to open at Montecasino on the 17th of January 2020. Lavercombe has just completed the UK Tour of Richard O’Brien’s The Rocky Horror Show where he notched up a staggering 1600 performances! Not only is this a record for an actor playing the role the most, but it also marks the record any actor has performed in Rocky Horror since its conception.
Since it first opened in London in June 1973 at the Royal Court Theatre Upstairs, Richard O’Brien’s The Rocky Horror Show has become the world’s favourite Rock ‘N’ Roll musical, having been performed worldwide for 45 years in more than 30 countries and translated into over 20 languages. Directed by Christopher Luscombe, the smash hit show features all of the famous musical numbers which have made The Rocky Horror Show such a huge hit for over four decades, including Sweet Transvestite, Dammit Janet and, of course, the timeless floor-filler, The Time-Warp.
The Rocky Horror Show tells the story of Brad and his fiancée Janet, two squeaky clean college kids who meet Dr Frank’n’Furter by chance when their car breaks down outside his house whilst on their way to visit their favorite college professor. It’s an adventure they’ll never forget, with fun, frolics, frocks and frivolity, bursting with timeless songs and outrageous outfits. The Rocky Horror Show is a guaranteed party, which famously combines science-fiction, horror, comedy and music while encouraging audience participation meaning, of course, getting dressed in the most outrageous fancy dress.
The cast includes the BEST SA talent. Urbani, Normington, and Nurden will be joined on stage by Anthony Downing, Marlee van der Merwe, Tyla Dee Nurden, Stefania du Toit, Zak Hendrikz, Jessica Sole, Usisipho Nteyi, Robin Timm and Sean Louw.
Ready to thrill you with fun and naughty moments, The Rocky Horror Show is the boldest bash of them all. But be warned, this show has rude parts!
BIGGER and BETTER than ever seen before on South African stages – this is Richard ‘O Brien’s original legendary Rock ‘n Roll Musical – It’s just a jump to the left… and then a step to the right!
