Some description

Celebrate Studio 2ndStage’s 25th anniversary with this original horror comedy musical! Two naïve lovers, Brad and Janet, seek shelter from a thunderstorm in an old castle and find themselves thrust into the laboratory of pansexual, cross-dressing mad scientist Dr. Frank ‘N’ Furter and his cadre of madcap minions. Stripped of their inhibitions—and their clothes—Brad and Janet embark on a wild, unforgettable odyssey of carnal pleasures and self-discovery. Reality, fiction, and camp collide in this mashup of comics, rock and roll, and late-night horror flicks. 

2ndStage is Studio’s playground for emerging artists, offering innovative and thrillingly eclectic programming with shorter rehearsal periods and smaller budgets than our other productions, with a spirit of exuberance and experiment.


An amazing feat of physical, sexual, and musical prowess. This is one show you won’t want to miss this summer! 

Brightest Young Things

Crackles with energy and invention, joy and savagery.
