Clarksville, TN – Dig out your fishnet stockings and sharpen your stilettos … that sweet transvestite and his motley crew are back! Here by popular demand, the Roxy Regional Theatre’s revival of “The Rocky Horror Show” opens Friday, October 19th, at 8:00pm.
Richard O’Brien’s cult favorite tells the story of Brad Majors (played by Rob Rodems) and his fiancée Janet Weiss (played by Kaitlin Doughty), two clean-cut young people on the way to visit an old college professor. When they run into trouble and seek help at the freaky Frankenstein mansion, little do they know that Dr. Frank N. Furter (played by Matt Varelia) is in the midst of one of his maniacal experiments!Directed and choreographed by Tom Thayer, “The Rocky Horror Show” also features Ryan Bowie and Emily Eden as Riff Raff and Magenta, Michelle Foletta as Columbia, Colin Ryan as Eddie, Matt Casey as Rocky, Humberto Figueroa and Nicole Powell as phantoms, and John McDonald as Dr. Scott. Audiences will be doing the “Time Warp” to live music provided by Tom Thayer on piano, Jarrod Jackson on guitar, Bruce Ervin on bass, Thad Wallus on drums, and Johnny Tubbs on saxophone.
“The Rocky Horror Show” is made possible in part through the generous support of Fort Campbell MWR.
This production is rated “M” for Mature. Audience participation is encouraged, and patrons are invited to dress up in their favorite Rocky Horror attire. Bags of props will also be for sale in the lobby one hour prior to every performance. The following items, however, will not be permitted: rice, confetti, glitter, squirt guns, lighters, matches, candles, silly spray string, or any other objects which may damage the theatre or injure actors and/or audience members.
