A RIOTOUS mix of the Addams Family, Young Frankenstein and Phantom of the Opera is promised in a bizarre, anarchic and very funny rock ’n’ roll musical coming to the Regal Theatre in Minehead this weekend.
The Rocky Monster Show, presented by Oasis and Hocus Pocus, tells the tale of Baron Frankenstein’s descendant, an ex-pop star turned professor of genetics who creates DNA moulds of people in his computer.
How these moulds come to life as the ultimate rock group, headed by a clone of Elvis, is the highlight of the plot.
Audiences are promised a heart-warming adaptation of the story by Malcolm Sircom and a 60s-style rock ‘n’ roll score.
The Oasis group, which includes local people of all ages, hope to impress with their enthusiastic dance, singing and acting.
Performances on Friday and Saturday begin at 7.30pm and at 2.30pm on Sunday.
Tickets cost £5.50 and are on sale at the Regal box office. Phone 01643-706430 or visit www.regaltheatre.co.uk.
