“The Rocky Horror Show” Hits Rock Island October 20

On the way to visit an old college professor, two clean cut kids, Brad Majors and his fiancée Janet Weiss, get caught in a storm and end up at the home of a mad transvestite scientist, Dr Frank ‘n’ Furter, who is in the midst of one of his maniacal experiments!

The show is filled with twisted, whacky comedy and memorable songs including “The Time Warp”, Sweet Transvestite”, “I’m Going Home,” “I Can Make You A Man” and many more!

Directed by long time “Rocky Horror” veteran Tristan Tapscott – who appeared as Franky in The Speakeasy’s productions in 2018 and 2020 and directed the show in both 2021 and 2022, the show features Micah Bernas as Franky, Taylor Lynn as Janet, Tyler Henning as Brad, Kelsi Ford as Magenta, Bradley Heinrichs as Eddie/Dr. Scott, Adam Cerny as Rocky, Abigail Graham as Riff-Raff, Sophia Kilburg as Columbia and returning for his 7th consecutive year – Doug Kutzli as the Narrator!

“The Rocky Horror Show” is produced by Brett Hitchcock and features Choreography by Ashley Becher and Music Direction by Bobby Becher, reuniting the same creative team behind the 2022 and 2023 productions. The design team includes Lighting Designer Cameron Strandin, Sound Designer Ben Takitch and Stage Manager Jeremy Littlejohn.
