Wednesday, January 28, 2015 – The National Touring Company of WICKED will host “THE WICKED ROCKY HORROR SHOW,” a staged concert performance of Richard O’Brien’s “The Rocky Horror Show,” at The Fonda Theatre Monday, February 23, at 7:30 p.m. The event will feature the company of WICKED, and net proceeds will benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

In addition to the performance, there will be live auctions including several opportunities to join the company backstage at The Pantages Theatre, and a chance to bid on a walk-on role in a performance of WICKED.
“THE WICKED ROCKY HORROR SHOW” is part of an ongoing series of performances by the touring company to support charitable causes which advance WICKED’s theme of acceptance and illuminate the musical’s message that people should not be judged on first impressions. The company believes that in these divisive times we must come together to support those in need throughout the country and around the world. In its nearly ten years on the road, the company has raised over $3.5 million in donations for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and local AIDS service organizations all over the country.
Produced by company members, the evening is an opportunity for them to step out of their roles in the musical and kick up their (spiked) heels as Dr. Frank-N-Furter, Riff Raff, Columbia, Magenta, Rocky, Janet and Brad.
The event will be directed by company member Timothy A. Fitz-Gerald with choreography by Jonathan McGill. Musical direction provided by Andrew Graham.
WICKED, Broadway’s biggest blockbuster, is playing through March 15 at the Pantages Theatre. Good seats are still available. Tickets can be purchased by visiting www.hollywoodpantages.com or www.ticketmaster.com/wicked or also by calling Ticketmaster at 800-982-2787.
