Hamilton - shiver with anticipation, at spending "An Evening with Richard O'Brien", creator of the cult hit The Rocky Horror Show, and hosted by Quantas TV award winner Mark Sainsbury. Richard would like to take you on a strange and revealing journey of his life, music and memoirs at the Gallagher Concert Chamber on 16 December at 7pm.

The event precedes an exciting new musical docudrama due to film next year, about Richard's past, from small, frail boy, bound for a life of farming in New Zealand, to cult hero of the silver screen. Writer/director, Fiona Jackson is keen to seize the opportunity to further Hamilton's status as a city capable of producing creative arts projects of an international standard.

Richard O'Brien was previously a resident of Hamilton, where the statue of Riff Raff, central character from The Rocky Horror Show, has been erected on the former site of the Embassy Theatre on Victoria Street. Richard worked as a barber in the adjacent building and was inspired by the theatre's late night double features to write his show. Two years later, The Rocky Horror Show was adapted into a film which has since become one of the most well known and financially successful midnight movies.

Exclusive tickets to "An Evening with Richard O'Brien" will be auctioned on Trade Me in the week before 10 December.
