The 49th annual fundraiser is sure to sizzle your summer nights

After 39 long years of debauchery and Rock N’ Roll fun, The Rocky Horror Show – the original cult classic musical – finally makes its debut at the Chapel Street Playhouse! The Rocky Horror Show is the timeless story of what happens when two seemingly innocent, straight laced kids get their worlds rocked and turned upside down by a deranged mad scientist/sexual deviant transvestite from the Planet Transexual in the galaxy of Transylvania! Featuring hit songs such as “The Time Warp,” “Sweet Transvestite” and “Hot Patootie,” expect Rocky to the biggest party of the summer! Audience participation is highly encouraged!

Due to content and language, Rocky is not recommended for children under 13 years of age.

Rocky Horror runs June 15th, 16th, 22nd and 23rd at 8pm and a special midnight show, June 22nd at 11:59pm. All tickets just $18, Prop bags are $5 each, please call (302) 368-2248 or e-mail
