CCM stages cult classic musical 'The Rocky Horror Show'

CCM continues its CCMONSTAGE Musical Series with Richard O’Brien’s 'The Rocky Horror Show' on Oct. 31- Nov. 3 and Nov. 7-10, 2019 in Cohen Family Studio Theater

UC's College-Conservatory of Music continues its CCMONSTAGE Musical Series with Richard O’Brien’s The Rocky Horror Show on Oct. 31- Nov. 3 and Nov. 7-10, 2019 in Cohen Family Studio Theater. Tickets are going fast for this cult-favorite musical, so make sure to claim your seats while they are still available!

CCM’s production of The Rocky Horror Show brings the story closer to home by setting the action in an abandoned movie theater in Denton, Ohio on Halloween 2019. Directed by Vincent DeGeorge, this rock ‘n’ roll sci-fi gothic musical features popular hits such as “Science Fiction – Double Feature,” “Time Warp” and “Hot Patootie (Bless My Soul).”

In this cult classic, sweethearts Brad and Janet, stuck with a flat tire during a storm, discover the eerie mansion of Dr. Frank-N-Furter. As their innocence is lost, Brad and Janet meet a houseful of wild characters, including a rocking biker and a creepy butler. Through elaborate dances and rock songs, Frank-N-Furter unveils his latest creation: a muscular man named Rocky. For mature audiences.

Nominated in the 2001 Tony Awards for Best Revival of a Musical, The Rocky Horror Show originally premiered in London in 1973. “To build this monster, its creator Richard O’Brien combined his love of science fiction and horror movies with his desire to be part of the glam rock counterculture of the day,” says DeGeorge. Now, nearly 50 years later, the musical has entertained and inspired generations. 

“The Rocky Horror Show was one of the first musicals to depict gender expression and sexual fluidity and openly celebrate the power of self-creation,” DeGeorge adds. “Today, it continues to challenge all of us to question who we are and how we choose to express ourselves.”

The 2019-20 CCMONSTAGE Musical Series presents The Rocky Horror Show on Oct. 31- Nov. 3 and Nov. 7-10, 2019, at Cohen Family Studio Theater. Tickets are on sale now through the CCM Box Office; student discounts are available. Tickets for The Rocky Horror Show are limited.
