Perhaps you’ve never seen The Rocky Horror Picture Show…or perhaps you are more than familiar with this 1970s cult classic. First of all, it’s a movie. Secondly, it’s live theatre. But it’s so much more than that! The writer, Richard O’Brien probably said it best: “It’s a guaranteed party.” What other production has a live action cast performing in front of a screen? What other production expects audience members to get involved by yelling things and throwing special props? What other production gives its audience the chance to participate in costume?
Rocky Horror is the story of Brad Majors and his fiancée Janet Weiss; two normal youngsters who set out to visit their old teacher, Dr. Scott. On their journey, their car breaks down and they’re forced to walk to the creepy castle up the road in search of a phone, where instead, they find Dr. Frank N. Furter, a mad scientist/sweet transvestite who’s picked that night to complete his masterpiece: the bringing-to-life a man of his own creation, Rocky himself. What follows is a night that will change our heroes’ lives forever…and likely change YOURS too.
