Time really must be fleeting because The Rocky Horror Show is back in Australia after celebrating its 50th birthday in 2023. Since its debut in 1973 from maestro Richard O'Brien (and the beloved film adaptation in 1975), the show had a meteoric rise to icon status. Now, it's back in the Athenaeum Theatre by popular demand until Saturday, March 23.

In case you're among those who haven't had the pleasure of viewing this high energy rock 'n' roll masterpiece: It follows a squeaky-clean young couple who experience car troubles while driving on a remote highway and walk to a nearby castle to find help. Waiting in the castle is a mad scientist, his mad staff and an even madder creation.

This run hails the Neighbours legend Jason Donovan in the lead role of Dr Frank-N-Furter, plus Joel Creasey as The Narrator, Blake Bowden (The Phantom of the Opera) and Deirdre Khoo (Once) as the couple in question, Brad and Janet.

The cast also includes Ellis Dolan (School of Rock) as Eddie/Dr Scott, Darcey Eagle (Cruel Intentions: The 90s Musical) as Columbia, Daniel Erbacher (Cruel Intentions: The 90s Musical) as Rocky, and Henry Rollo (Jagged Little Pill the Musical) as Riff Raff.
