Presented by The Phoenix Theater Company
We would like… if we may… to take you on a strange journey. Join the Phoenix Theater Company for our production of The Rocky Horror Show, October 17-28, at Trinity-on-Main in New Britain, CT. Of course there will be special midnight shows. This 70s cult classic is known for its campy humor and audience participation. See mad scientist Frank N Furter corrupt the innocent Brad and Janet and try to make his perfect man. Join Magenta and Riff-Raff in their memories of happier days. Watch Columbia and Eddie have a good time… for a while anyway. See Dr. Scott roll around the stage and hear Rocky grunt. Heckle the Narrator as he abuses you right back! Prop bags will be sold so you can make yourselves part of the fun! Feel free to dress up as your favorite character.
