Rocky Horror Show bosses sent 52 tins of Frankfurters after ordering Frank-N-Furter wigs
THE Rocky Horror Show bosses ordered a batch of Frank-N-Furter wigs — and were sent 52 tins of Frankfurters by mistake.
The production team paid for a shipment of black curly rugs inspired by character Dr Frank-N-Furter to sell to audience members.
But bungling suppliers sent the 416 sausage snacks instead to The Orchard Theatre in Dartford, Kent.
Its production of the musical comedy horror starring Strictly winner Ore Oduba, 35, opens this month.
In an online video, theatre worker Kay Hadley says the mix-up probably occurred because the theatre uses the same supplier for food and party items.
She says: “I opened the box and I was completely confused. We checked to make sure no one in the venue had ordered them.
“We are still checking to see what has happened.” Show bosses have since decided to donate the grub to a food bank.
The musical, written by Richard O’Brien, first ran in 1973 and built a cult following.
It tells the story of squeaky clean college kids Brad and Janet who get a flat tyre in their car outside transvestite scientist Frank-N-Furter’s eerie mansion where a bizarre convention is taking place.
