ROCKYtober 2015!

On this 40th Anniversary year of the Rocky Horror Picture Show, it’s abundantly clear that the love of this movie (and play) is as strong as ever. Here is the 2015 Rockytober list that we have compiled thus far. As we do each year, we make direct contact with all venues involved (and never just do a copy-n-paste from any other source) to ensure all information is current as of the date of publishing. The information listed is everything we were given by the respective venues. For further information for each event, we recommend you contact each theater directly. This list will be updated as we receive new/additional information.

Time is running out

We are in the process of compiling the new listings for all the RH shows in Michigan for RocKYtober 2015. If you plan to do a screening of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and/or plan to Shadowcast it, or put on the  Rocky Horror play, please contact us as soon as possible so we can list your show! Send all the information you want listed to 2015listings@MichiganRockyHorror.org (Note to spammers: this email account will be deleted after November 1st).

THE RHPS 40th Anniversary is coming up this month!

HWPr1HC

Update: MiRHPS in Detroit Metro Area

We earlier reported that the Michigan Rocky Horror Preservation Society was going to have a Tiki Theme Night on their first show in August. That was in error, as it is actually going to be on their second August show on the 22nd.

They would like to make sure everyone knows that they will not be having a second show in September, because they will all be in NYC at the RHPS 4oth Anniversary convention instead.  Their only September show will be on September 12th. They will be back with a show every single weekend in October, however!

Rockytober 2015 is coming soon!

We will be doing our updates for Rockytober in the very near future. If you plan to do a screening of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, or plan to shadowcast it, or put on the play, please contact us as soon as possible so we can list your show! If you know of a screening or play that we don’t have listed, let us know!

St Joseph!

St. Joseph’s Mickey’ Pub will be invaded by the Hot Patooties cast out of South Bend, Indiana for a one-time show on July 17th! See their Facebook event page for details: https://www.facebook.com/events/1651816238384282/

Latest Michigan Happenings

This time of year, not too much Rocky Horror related is happening. But here’s a couple things.

Metro Detroit Area: The Michigan Rocky Horror Preservation Society just celebrated their 2nd anniversary this month and is still doing  their spectacular shows every 2nd and 4th Saturday of each and every month at the State Theater in Wayne. Know that’s the case, even if we forget to update them in the “Upcoming Shows” list. Since their theater was renovated in November 2014, they have sold out practically every single show, so if you want to go see them, it’s best to buy your ticket well in advance. Go to their website and follow the links. They will be having various theme nights once each month over the summer: Patriotic Night; last show in June. Sock Hop; first July show. Tiki Night: first August show. They will be at the RHPS 40th Anniversary Convention in NYC during the weekend of their second September show, to it’s TBD at this point if they will have a show that weekend.

Jackson Area: The Glorious Garters won’t be doing any shows until Halloween. However, they will be doing a Repo! the Genetic Opera / RHPS double feature that night at the Michigan Theater.

That’s all the info we have for Michigan happenings. For national and international happenings, you’ll want to check out RockyHorror.ORG or RockyHorror.COM or for info on the RHPS 40th anniversary convention in New York, RHPS40.com is the website.

ROCkyTOBER 2014 Is Here!

October is the favored time of the year for special Rocky Horror showings and performances, thus we dub the month to be ROCkyTOBER! We’ve compiled this list by direct contact with all venues involved and all information is current as of the date of publishing. The information listed is everything we were given, thus for further information for each event, we recommend you contact the respective theater directly. This list will be updated as we receive new/additional information.
