Synopsis of Richard O'Brien's "The Rocky Horror Show": An outrageous musical comedy featuring a Transylvanian transvestite, a cryogenically preserved zombie motorbiker and Frankensteins monster in Greek god form. This sexual parody of horror and science fiction films premiered onstage in London in 1973, becoming the popular cult classic film The Rocky Horror Picture Show in 1975.

Character Breakdown:
While we are not trying to re-create the movie, and may go in different directions, this play ultimately deals with overt sexuality. Everyone who auditions needs to be comfortable with this. Performers of all ethnic and racial backgrounds are encouraged to attend.
We are seeking male actors ranging in age from their 20s through 60 and female actors ranging in age from their 20s through 30s as follows:

Character List:


Narrator: Good Radio Voice. Possible non-singing role. Age range 35-60.

Usherette: Mezzo (Top C/D) Rock belter. Double cast as Magenta.

Brad: Tenor (written top G/Ab) Maybe a sort of Neil Sedaka 60s style. Audition with either a pop song in that style or a pop/rock musical song. Straight Hero type. Age range 20s. Must be comfortable performing in underwear.

Janet: Soprano (Top F) Comfortable with some light belting but can also sound classical in head voice. Audition with 2 short contrasting works for this part: An easy pop/rock (Mamma Mia, Aida) and a classic Broadway soprano role (Show Boat, etc). Straight Heroine type. Age range 20s. Must be comfortable performing in underwear.

Riff Raff: Tenor (written top G/Ab) REALLY A true rock screamer. Audition with something like an Aerosmith or The Who rocker. Not your average handyman. Age range 20-30s.

Magenta: Mezzo (Top C/D) Rock belter, but looking for a contrast between Magenta and


Columbia. Think Joan Jett or Janis Joplin, Ann Wilson or Grace Slick. For these roles any good belting pop/rock song would work (NO Mariah or American Idol type showoff songs this is ROCK). Maid type on the kinky side. Riff Raffs sister. Age range 20-30s. Double cast as the Usherette.

Columbia: Mezzo (Top C/D) Rock belter, but looking for a contrast between Magenta and

Columbia. Think Joan Jett or Janis Joplin, Ann Wilson or Grace Slick. For these roles any good belting pop/rock song would work (NO Mariah or American Idol type showoff songs this is ROCK). Must be able to tap. A Groupie. Age range 20s. Must be comfortable performing in underwear. Must tap.

Dr. Frank N Furter: High Baritone (Top F or G) Need a full-bodied voice able to do a range of voices. A traditional pop/rock musical song would work (Aida, Chess, etc.) Age range 25-35.

Eddie: - Baritone (Top F#) For auditions, any Meatloaf song would be fine, of course. Biker look. Age range 25 45. Double cast with Dr. Scott.
Rocky: Tenor Must be in good shape and comfortable with partial nudity Age range 25-35.

Dr. Scott: Dr. Scott is Eddie’s uncle and coincidentally a scientist and specialist on space aliens at the Bureau for the investigation of UFOs. He is a Dr. Strangelove type, wheelchair bound and possibly an ex-Nazi. Sings gospel/rock and roll. Age range 45-55.
