 CARY, NC (August 2, 2018) Let’s do the Time Warp again! Come to see happens when Theatre Raleigh and Cary’s Booth Amphitheatre join forces again to present the LIVE MUSICAL version of the cult classic The Rocky Horror Show on stage October 26 & 27.

Richard O’Brien’s The Rocky Horror Show, the musical that inspired the 1975 classic cult film, “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” follows innocent couple Brad and Janet as they seek shelter at a mysterious old castle on a dark and stormy night, where they encounter transvestite Dr. Fran ‘N” Furter, his “perfect” creation Rocky, and an assortment of other crazy creatures.

MERCYYYYYYY! Just when you think this can’t get any better Theatre Raleigh announces YouTube sensation Penn Holderness will be playing Riff Raff, the Transylvanian who came to Earth with his sister Magenta and his master Dr. Frank N. Furter.

Don’t miss your favorite motley crew as they do the Time Warp LIVE at Booth Amphitheatre. Complete with audience participation, this deliberately kitschy rock ‘n’ roll sci-fi gothic musical is more fun than ever and coming just in time for Halloween. General Admission Lawn tickets are $22.50 and Reserved Seats are $35. Go to for more info. Tickets on sale now!
