The rock musical by Richard O'Brien will play the San Diego resident theatre Sept. 15-Nov. 6. Opening night is Sept. 23. Oanh Nguyen directs the classic cult musical with book, music and lyrics by O'Brien, choreography by JT Horenstein and music direction by Mike Wilkins.

The cast also features Andrew Call (Eddie, Phantom), Jeanna de Waal (Janet), Sydney James Harcourt (Rocky), Nadine Isenegger (Columbia), Lauren Lim Jackson (Phantom), Kelsey Kurz (Brad), David Andrew Macdonald (Narrator, Dr. Scott), Anna Schnaitter (Phantom), Laura Shoop (Magenta), Kit Treece (Phantom) and Jason Wooten (Riff Raff).

The 1973 musical that became a cult-hit movie and started a 35-year nonstop cultural phenomenon (with screenings at which audience members act out the picture and dress in costume) concerns Brad and Janet, a clean-cut young couple from the suburbs who stumble into the world of "the devilishly charming transvestite Dr. Frank 'N' Furter…and his mysterious laboratory," offering a "a time warp of sexual and scientific possibilities — and, perhaps, true love."

The creative team also includes Donyale Werle (scenic design), Emily Rebholz (costume design), Rui Rita (lighting design), Kevin Kennedy (sound design), Aaron Rhyne (projection design) and Anjee Nero (stage mnager).
