Rocky comes to Cowley
Dominic Andersen, who plays the eponymous role in The Rocky Horror Show, which comes to the New Theatre Oxford for Christmas, visited the metrology lab at MINI plant Oxford, in Cowley.
This is where engineers work to perfect their iconic cars using a range of the latest technology, including ‘Pruefcubes‘ – aluminium full body master structures of the MINI and the perfect representation of the car’s shell.
He said: “Well nobody's perfect, but Oxford's MINI plant comes pretty close with all the research and hard work it puts into its machines. Rather like the hard work I put in at the gym to achieve the body of Rocky Horror.”
The world’s favourite Rock 'n' Roll musical, runs at the New Theatre Oxford from 13th-31st December. It tells the story of Brad and his fiancée Janet, two squeaky clean college kids who meet Dr Frank-N-Furter by chance when their car breaks down outside his house on their way to visit their former college professor. It is an adventure they’ll never forget, with fun, frolics, frocks, and frivolity, bursting with timeless songs and outrageous outfits.
Directed by Christopher Luscombe, the Rocky Horror Show is a guaranteed party, which famously combines science-fiction, horror, comedy and music and encourages audience participation meaning, of course, getting dressed in your most outrageous fancy dress. This musical extravaganza features all of its famous musical classics including ‘Science Fiction/Double Feature’, ‘Dammit Janet‘ and of course, the timeless floor-filler, ‘Time Warp’.
