MONTREAL, October 9th, 2019 – MainLine Theatre is thrilled to bring Richard O’Brien’s The Rocky Horror Show – the live Montreal musical – back to its MainStage from October 17th to November 2nd.
What has become a much-anticipated staple in Montrealers’ Halloween events calendar, this fully-staged spectacle is the city’s only live musical version of the cult classic with full-blown choreographies and a five-piece band. And yes, of course, the audience is strongly encouraged to shout out callbacks throughout the performance! This year’s production is directed and choreographed by MainLine Theatre’s Executive and Artistic Director, Amy Blackmore with artistic collaborations from Debora Friedmann (Contact Theatre’s Bonnie & Clyde), holly Greco (Measure for Measure, A Century Songbook) and Jessica Rae (Bad Girl Puppet Club).
