ROCKY: A Horror Show

An original alternative comedy by The Wardrobe Theatre

25th Dec
Ages 14+ | Christmas 2016

It’s a hook to the left! And then a jab to the right! Let’s do the time-warp back to 1976 – a world when women were men, men were women and the mean streets of Philadelphia were filled with campy song.

When small-time boxer Rocky is challenged to the fight of his life, the Italian Stallion must learn to float like a butterfly, sting like a bee, dance like a rock’n’roll star and sing like a queen!

After the stunning successes of Goldilock, Stock & Three Smoking Bears and Muppits Die Hard, The Wardrobe Theatre is totally thrilled to be bringing you another of our signature, darkly comic, adult only, alternative Christmas shows – a madcap merging of Sylvester Stallone’s breakthrough classic with Richard O’Brien’s cult musical masterpiece. A scary-sexy, knock-out comedy that always punches below the belt, Rocky: A Horror Show is a Christmas show you won’t forget… however hard you try…

“A smash hit must-see… Fantastically entertaining.”
★★★★ The Fix

“There are laughs aplenty, not the polite laughter of the theatre crowd but real genuine guffaws from an audience with a drink in hand and ready to have a good time.”
★★★★ The Reviews Hub

“The outright winner of the comedy heavyweight title… Take a ringside seat, and have a good roll round in the aisles of the Wardrobe Theatre, punchdrunk with glee.”
