Christie Whelan Browne is angry over the reaction of her former employer

The head of the production company responsible for The Rocky Horror Show has issued an apology to the women allegedly abused by actor Craig McLachlan, as two more accusers have come forward.

The accusations were leveled by three actresses who were cast members of a 2014 production in the city of Melbourne of the "The Rocky Horror Show", in which McLachlan starred as the transvestite alien Dr. Frank-N-Furter.

Frost said GFO had strict policies and procedures in place for people who have complaints about harassment, and that they were in place in 2014.

Erika Heynatz, Angela Scundi and Christie Whelan Browne, performers from the 2014 production, have made the allegations about their co-star to the ABC's 7:30 Report.

The reports come after Ms Browne, Ms Scundi and Ms Heynatz, who appeared in the 2014 production of the Rocky Horror Show, said McLachlan inappropriately touched them or exposed himself.

McLachlan mutually agreed with the Gordon Frost Organisation to step down from the current run of The Rocky Horror Show pending an investigation into the allegations.

"That's not normal workplace behaviour, that's not normal, that's not OK and yet for some reason, because of this sense of entitlement and this level of confidence ... he thought there was nothing wrong with doing that", she said.

"I can only explain this by pointing out that I speak to many people backstage across many productions and have little time to spend with each person", he said in a statement.

The award winning theatre star - who claims McLachlan pulled up her underwear and kissed her buttocks whilst only she was visible on stage - took to Twitter to defend herself against the trolls accusing her of making up the story for money.

Another woman said she was 25 and working in a tanning salon in Adelaide in 2004 when McLachlan came in.

"It was so out of the blue, it was the middle of the day, I'm at work, you don't really expect that".

Another woman told Fairfax Media she contacted producers following an encounter with McLachlan in her auto as she drove him to the airport.

McLachlan has not spoken publicly since the allegations were raised but has described them as "baseless" and "inventions" in a statement.

Whelan-Browne and McLachlan now co-star in Ten's The Wrong Girl.

She said McLachlan then called her later and asked her to meet him for a drink, which she declined.

She added: "The amount of love is drowning them out. rising above is hard, but I'm trying". While Craig McLachlan is facing serious allegations for sexual misconduct he has not been changed by Police for any crime.

The 52-year-old actor, who is a household name in Australia, has denied the allegations, which were first reported in the media on Monday.
