The Grand Theatre is back, starting with The Rocky Horror Show

It’s been more than a year and a half since the historic Grand Theatre has hosted a full stage production due to the pandemic, but it’s back – and better than ever, starting with The Rocky Horror Show.

Performances run Wednesday through Saturday until Oct. 30 at the Grand, located at 1575 S. State St. in Salt Lake City. Tickets can be purchased at www.grandtheatrecompany.com or by calling the Grand Box Office at 801-957-3322.

Featuring a full live band and backup singers, this perennial cult classic pairs sweethearts Brad and Janet, stuck with a flat tire during a storm, stumbling upon the eerie mansion of Dr. Frank-N-Furter. As their innocence is lost, Brad and Janet meet a houseful of wild characters, including a rocking biker and a creepy butler. Through elaborate dances and rock songs, Frank-N-Furter unveils his latest creation: a muscular man named Rocky. As usual, audience participation prop bags will be available for $3. Guests are asked to refrain from bringing outside props. Outside food and drink are also not permitted inside the theatre – but there will be snacks for sale.

Costumes and audience participation are, of course, encouraged. Doors open 30 minutes prior to start time. Children five and up welcome, but no babes in arms. 

Regular tickets are $27 and senior tickets are $20, and the Grand offers many specialized discounts for groups, military/veterans, college students, alumni, junior high and high school students and many more.

Parking is free in the north and east parking lots of the South City Salt Lake Community College Campus. Metered and ADA Accessible parking will be monitored.
