Let's do the time warp again at the Art Centre Theatre! In this sexy sci-fi parody, which was made into a cult film starring Tim Curry and Susan Sarandon, Brad and Janet seek refuge in a mysterious castle on a rainy night -- only to become stranded with Dr. Frank N. Furter and his creepy crew of aliens and misfits, who cast an unconventional spell and lead the young couple on an intergalactic adventure of sexual discovery and rock 'n' roll. Sing along to all your favorite hits: "Time Warp," "Sweet Transvestite" and "Dammit Janet." Learn More

I've attended other Rover Drama Works plays and this one sure didn't measure up. The actors worked very hard, but the play described as a farce, was more like something from the Three Stooges. The costumes literally fell apart during the play.
I hope the next play presented will be able to take advantage of some of the talented actors involved.
Lovesick and desperate, sculptor Brindsley Miller has embellished his apartment with furniture and objects d’art “borrowed” from the absent antique collector next door hoping to impress his fiancée’s pompous father and a wealthy art dealer. The catch? A blown fuse has plunged the apartment into darkness … just as said neighbor arrives home.
Unexpected guests, mixed-up cocktails, and the flame of a single lighter impede Brindsley’s frantic attempts to set things right before light is restored. A brilliant farce described by the International Herald Tribune as “pure hilarity.”
