Montreal, September 25, 2018 – MainLine Theatre is thrilled to bring back Richard O’Brien’s The Rocky Horror Show to the MainLine MainStage from Oct 18-31, 2018. Brought to you by the producers of the St-Ambroise Montreal Fringe Festival, this has become a favourite Montreal Halloween tradition. Directed and choreographed by MainLine Theatre’s Executive and Artistic Director Amy Blackmore with collaborations from Holly Greco and Jessica Rae, this production is Montreal’s only live musical version of the cult classic.

The Rocky Horror Show is more than just a good night out (“Night in!”). Like your first kiss, you’ll always remember your first time… and always want another! It’s no accident (“An accident!”) that MainLine Theatre, producers of the Fringe, Fringe Encore and Bouge d’ici, has been presenting this show for the past four years. The Rocky Horror Show celebrates diversity, accessibility and artistic freedom — values MainLine Theatre holds dear.

With full-blown choreographies and a five-piece band to accompany, Richard O’Brien’s characters come to life in this fully staged version. And, yes, of course, the audience is strongly encouraged to shout out callbacks throughout the performance! (“Say it, ***hole!”)
