The cult classic is back! Craig McLachlan does the Time Warp again and reprises his role as the strange and wonderful Dr. Frank N Furter!
Producers Howard Panter, John Frost and Torben Brookman announce that the world’s favourite rock and roll musical would return to Australia in a fresh new production next year, with Helpmann Award winner, Craig McLachlan leading the cast in the legendary fishnets.

The Morning Bulletin said, “Craig McLachlan is absolutely fabulous. He’s cheeky and owns the stage whenever he’s on it. His voice is powerful and he oozes sex and charm”, while the Herald Sun said, “McLachlan is audacious and ostentatiously camp.”
“Craig McLachlan is absolutely fabulous.” “To say we are thrilled to dance the Time Warp across Australia again is an understatement,” said Howard Panter on behalf of the producers.
