A comedy-drag-boxing-musical extravaganza from The Wardrobe Theatre, makers of Reservoir Mogs and Goldilock, Stock & Three Smoking Bears
It’s a hook to the left! And then a jab to the right! 1976; a world without men and women – only lovers, fighters, dancers and all-nighters and where the mean streets of Philadelphia are filled with campy song.
When small-time boxer Rocky Featherboa is challenged to the fight of their life, the Italian Stallion must risk it all and learn to float like a butterfly, sting like a bee, dance like a rock’n’roll star and sing like a queen!
After the stunning success of Goldilock, Stock & Three Smoking Bears, The Wardrobe Theatre brings you another of its signature, darkly comic, adult only shows – a loving, playful fusion of the boxing classic with the cross-dressing cult musical masterpiece. A scary-sexy, knock-out comedy that always punches below the belt, *_ROCKY SHOCK_ * is a show you won’t forget, however hard you try…
★★★★ A smash hit must-see… Fantastically entertaining.
★★★★ There are laughs aplenty, not the polite laughter of the theatre crowd but real genuine guffaws from an audience with a drink in hand and ready to have a good time.
The outright winner of the comedy heavyweight title… Take a ringside seat, and have a good roll round in the aisles of the Wardrobe Theatre, punchdrunk with glee.

Charity dress-up performance
Release your inner Apollo Creed on Tuesday 18 Dec and join us for our special charity dress-up performance of ROCKY SHOCK HORROR!
This comedy-drag-boxing-musical extravaganza combines the Sly Stallone Rocky film with cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and we’d love to see as many of you embracing this hilarious mash-up by donning your boxing gloves and lippy!
Come as the Italian Stallion himself, or maybe Dr Frank-N-Furter, or just go a bit crazy with the two, it’s all a bit of fun!
We’ll be inviting patrons to make a voluntary donation on the night (minimum suggested donation £1), with all the proceeds going to Theatre Royal Plymouth’s Christmas Appeal – supporting our Funky Llama project – an inclusive platform for adults with different abilities to actively participate the creation and delivery of a programme of activities and professional, inclusive arts events to develop well-being, promote multiple social networking opportunities, reduce isolation and enhance life skills.
See you there with bells on, literally!
