The Rocky Horror Show | Live Musical 

October 21-23 (three shows) at the Byrdcliffe Theater



R’ville Stage Creations is proud to present a live musical production of Richard O’Brien’s cult classic The Rocky Horror Show. In this creatively reimagined rendition of the original stage musical, sweethearts Brad and Janet find themselves in an abandoned traveling sideshow led by mad scientist Dr. Frank-N-Furter who is preparing to unveil his latest creation: a physically perfect muscle man named “Rocky”. As the night unfolds the young couple find themselves in a world of wild characters, mutating identities, fluid sexuality, and innocence lost. This campy gothic glam rock musical pays tribute to the sci-fi and horror B movies of the mid-1900s.


Under the artistic direction of Tara Hostash, R’ville Stage Creations is a non-profit community organization dedicated to bringing live theater to rural communities in and around the hilltowns of upstate New York. The Rocky Horror Show book, music and lyrics by Richard O’Brien. The Rocky Horror Show is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals.
