An accompanist will be provided.
It is recommended that actors familiarize themselves with the characters and material in the play.
ABOUT THE PLAY: Smack your lips, gird your loins and tighten your corset for The Rocky Horror Show – a delectable, cult-classic musical with unforgettable characters and steamy musical numbers. This salute to B-movies and sci-fi thrillers will tempt you to dance the “Time Warp”, seduce you with a “Sweet Transvestite” and leave you howling, “Hot Patootie, Bless My Soul”!
