rocky horrorThe Rocky Horror Show is returning to its traditional home at the Bucks County Playhouse just in time for Halloween. Featuring direction by Hunter Foster and choreography by Lorin Latarro, the cast for The Rocky Horror Show will include Nick Cearley as Brad, Jennifer Cody as Columbia, Lauren Molina as Janet and Will Swenson as Dr. Frank-N-Furter.

The creative team includes David L. Arsenault and Wilson Chin (Set Design), Nicole V. Moody (Costume Design) and Travis McHale (Lighting Design).

 “We are thrilled that this all-star Broadway cast and creative team is as excited as we are to bring this New Hope tradition back to the Playhouse,” said Producing Director Jed Bernstein.

The Rocky Horror Show, with book, music, and lyrics by Richard O’Brien, is a musical that inspired the 1975 classic cult film, The Rocky Horror Picture Show. It 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. Frank N Furter, his “perfect” creation Rocky, and an assortment of other crazy creatures.
