Plot Summary: In this cult classic, sweethearts Brad and Janet, stuck with a flat tire during a storm, discover 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.”
USHERETTE: Age Flexible (Range: Mezzo Soprano Belt, Bb3-Eb5) She opens the production singing “Science Fiction/Double Feature”, with Usherette and phantom chorus and then reappears at the end to sing a reprise of that song. This role will be one of the female roles cast as a Transylvanian/Phantom
MAGENTA: Age Flexible (Range: Mezzo Soprano Belt, Bb3-Eb5) Magenta is a domestic from the planet Transsexual, in the galaxy Transylvania. Her job is simple, keep the castle clean and prepare all meals. And wait on Frank hand and foot. Cater to his every whim. Magenta is fond of her brother Riff Raff, and can be seen laughing at the other’s misery. She is close friends with Columbia. Magenta is not afraid to put her foot down to get her point across, and will be pushy or rude to get what she wants.
BRAD: 18-35 (Range: Bari Tenor, Bb2-G4) Quirky and overly optimistic at times. An All-American man who proposes to his girlfriend Janet Weiss. However, on the way to meet his old friend and science teacher, Dr. Scott, Brad Majors ends up with a flat tire on his car. He soon finds himself at the mercy of Dr. Frank N Furter, his servants, and ends up confused over his own sexuality after the events in the castle.
JANET: 18-35 (Range: Mezzo Soprano Belt, A3-Eb5) Good, innocent girl who is madly in love with Brad. Always seems to be frightened of something. Keeps losing more of her clothes throughout the story. Emotionally weak and caves into pressure easily. During her time in the castle, she has sex with both Frank N. Furter and Rocky…the latter prompting pure rage from the former. In the end, she’s also confused about what has occurred, but also realizes the benefits of living a sexually active life.
