WITH an abundance of corsets, fishnet tights, stockings, false eyelashes, glitter and bowties and not a drab drag act in sight, The Rocky Horror Show is never dull. And that’s just the audience. Photographer TRACEY ADAMS and Good Weekend reporter REBECCA JACKMAN went to The Fugard to see the fabulous fashions on show before the show.
