Why you should see The Rocky Horror Show

Because it’s time to do the Time Warp, again!
Because you loved the movie — so come see the original. (The 1975 movie was based on Richard O’Brien’s 1973 musical.)
Because science fiction, on a stage, is a spectacle for the eyes.
Because of the antici……pation.
Because last time CLTC did the show, the lines were around the block.


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.” Complete with sass from the audience, this deliberately kitschy rock ‘n’ roll sci-fi gothic musical is more fun than ever. City Lights had hit productions of Rocky Horror in 2003 and 2013, and we can’t wait to do the Time Warp with you again!
