The Rocky Horror Show hottest ticket in town


Excitement is building with the 50th anniversary tour of The Rocky Horror Show heading to Newcastle’s Civic Theatre early next year.

Proving to be one of the hottest tickets in town, the classic rock ‘n’ roll musical has already attracted thousands of bookings, with the season taking place from 12 January to 4 February.

The blitz was welcome news for leading British theatre producer Sir Howard Panter, of Trafalgar Entertainment, who admitted he was delighted to debut The Rocky Horror Show in Newcastle as the inaugural stop on its national tour in 2024. 

“We are thrilled to be able to bring the first of what will be many new international smash hit theatre productions to the city,” he said.

“And, what better way to start the party than with the ultimate rock ‘n’ roll celebration, The Rocky Horror Show?

“Audiences are in for the time of their lives.”

Lord Mayor Nuatali Nelmes said the early ticket sales showed just how much Newcastle residents appreciated being able to see shows of this calibre at their own iconic Civic Theatre. 

“There’s already so much anticipation building across the community for this production,” she explained.

“The record-breaking Come From Away season earlier this year showed just how much demand there is for world-class entertainment in Newcastle.

“And, it also highlighted the impact it has on our visitor economy by attracting a large contingent of its audiences from outside of the city. 

“As one of the world’s most popular musicals, we expect The Rocky Horror Show will be a major drawcard show for the city, too.

“I think everyone’s looking forward to seeing Jason Donovan and Myf Warhurst as Frank N Furter and The Narrator respectively.

“I’m sure they’ll wow fans.”
