Rocky Horror Show back at Wilmette Theatre--all new LIVE CAST
THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOWMovie with Live Cast! All New Show!
Come up to the lab and see what's on the slab! It's The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975), a screamingly funny, sinfully twisted salute to sci-fi, horror, B-movies and rock music. This weird and wonderful musical film phenomenon will make you shiver with antici...pation!
Adapted by director Jim Sharman and Richard O’Brien from O’Brien’s glam and punk rock inspired UK stage musical The Rocky Horror Show,the madcap, musical mayhem begins when rain-soaked typical square American couple Brad (Barry Bostwick) and Janet (Oscar winner Susan Sarandon) take refuge in the castle of Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry, in his iconic gender-bending performance), a transvestite mad scientist from outer space who is about to unveil his greatest creation - and have a bit of fun with his reluctant guests! Also present is his strange butler Riff-Raff (Richard O’Brien), weird maid Magenta (Patricia Quinn), rock and roll motorcyclist Eddie (rock star Meat Loaf) and his tap-dancing groupie Columbia ("Little Nell" Campbell). The most popular cult classic of all time! The Rocky Horror Picture Show is an extraordinary phenomenon-- an enduring worldwide cult success, beginning in the USA at late-night screenings, where attendees would dress up, chant lines and comebacks in unison, pull visual gags, dance, sing and more for the audience to enjoy. The ultimate audience-participation film, this campy horror send-up is hosted here at the Wilmette Theatre by Chicago TV's horror/scifi hostUndead Johnny and is performed with a live cast The World of the Weird Monster Show in a unique shadowcast performance that both duplicates and parodies the action taking place onscreen for a fabulously entertaining multimedia late-night show. And you can join in the fun as well, with plenty of opportunities for the audience to dig into their participation prop bags (sold at the door, complete with instructions) and enter the wild fun! And there's even a spooktacularly amazing pre-show!
