The Rocky Horror Show

Ready to thrill you with fun and naughty moments, Richard O’Brien’s legendary rock ‘n’ roll musical, The Rocky Horror Show returns to the UK in 2021 as part of a sell-out worldwide tour, having been seen by over 30 million theatregoers.

Directed by Christopher Luscombe and featuring timeless classics, including Sweet Transvestite, Damn it Janet, and of course, the pelvic-thrusting Time Warp.

The Rocky Horror Show is the story of two squeaky clean college kids – Brad and his fiancée Janet. 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.

The audience for The Rocky Horror Show will be seated in a socially distanced way.

  • Tickets will only be available in groups of 1,2,3 or 4 tickets.
  • All tickets in these groups must be purchased by one booker and each group must consist of one household. We will collect the booker’s contact information as usual and if required may share your contact details with NHS Scotland’s Test and Protect.
  • We will send you an email before your visit to the theatre 48 hours before the performance to provide you with useful information about your visit.
  • Tickets will have your arrival time printed on the ticket. We will be staggering entry times in order to limit the number of people arriving at once. Please ensure you arrive at the time printed on your ticket.
