Visitors to Terminal 2 at Perth Airport got a live reminder of the mantra made famous by the 1975 cult movie The Rocky Horror Picture Show as performers from Richard O’Brien’s Rocky Horror Show ” on now at Crown Theatre ” erupted into song and dance onsite last Tuesday.
Airport visitors were transported via the Time Warp to Transylvania as the colourful costumed characters of the musical strutted their stuff in a promo for the acclaimed production featuring an Australian cast.
There are several Perth connections in the cast, including Erika Heynatz (Magenta), who spent a year of her childhood living in Rockingham when her dad was posted to Garden Island with the Royal Australian Navy, while Tim Maddren (Brad) and Meghan O’Shea and Vincent Hooper, who play Phantoms, are all WA Academy of Performing Arts graduates.
Nicholas Christo, who plays the dual roles of Eddie and Dr Scott, is also originally from Perth.
While the cast are busy most nights performing in the evergreen production, some of their favourite Perth places to wind down when they are not rehearsing or causing madness at the airport include Perth’s many beaches and the port city of Fremantle.
