Houri Tapiki, General Manager Theatre Royal Sydney, says,“The 50th Anniversary tour of The Rocky Horror Show has been an enormous success at Theatre Royal Sydney. Night after night, sell out audiences have joined the party and participated in the Time Warp, led by the incredible cast including Jason Donovan and Myf Warhurst. We are thrilled to be able to now share this amazing production with the rest of the country, by teaming up with Trafalgar Releasing to distribute the show live into cinemas from the Royal. Cinemagoers are in for a treat, with the unveiling of never- before-seen drone footage of the Venue, showcasing everything that happens behind the scenes to bring this sort of event to life. Innovation and creativity is at the heart of everything we do to deliver an experience like no other at Theatre Royal Sydney. We dare to be different and will continue to pioneer initiatives such as these to make Arts accessible to those in Regional areas and to those who may not be able to make it to the Theatre.”

Marc Allenby, CEO of Trafalgar Releasing, says “We’re delighted to be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of The Rocky Horror Show with a live broadcast from Theatre Royal Sydney to cinemas across Australia. This is our first live broadcast from an Australian venue and it’s fantastic to be working with the team at the theatre and our partners within the Trafalgar Entertainment Group to bring one of the world’s favourite musicals to cinema audiences across the continent for the first time”.
