It is open to the public
Prop bags are available for sale on a first come first serve basis for $3 each, if people bring prop bags from home we just ask that the toast isn’t buttered and that the rice isn’t cooked, also no hot dogs.
No shadow cast, but anyone can get up and do the Time Warp or whatever whenever they want

Rocky Horror Picture Show MOVIE showings for October 2012

Here’s what we’ve all been waiting for, the list of Michigan shows for the 2012 Halloween season! (And there was much rejoicing…yay!) We plan on going to as many as we possibly can – and will be in full costume at all shows. Don’t forget to dress up – if not as one of the main characters or Transylvanians, just wear something sexy. If you happen to be at one of the shows we are at, make sure you come say Hello. And don’t be shy about asking us to pose for photos for/with you – we love it! We would especially love it if you shared your photos with us as well. Nudge, nudge, wink, wink!
Okay, here is the list in alphabetical order by theater name. Check the menu on the left titled Upcoming Shows to see them in order by date and city.

Rocky Horror Show (the original stage show, NOT the movie!) for October 2012

This list pertains to only theatres doing the STAGE performance in October. For those who may be new to Rocky Horror, it was the stage show first before it became a movie. The story is mostly the same, but there may be a song or two you may not of heard before if you’ve only seen the movie. And just like the movie, audience participation is part of the show and what makes it fun!

Spring Showings!

Taylor Spotlight has announce 2 shows – Friday the 28th and Saturday the 29th. Unfortunately, that’s Penguicon weekend so me and most of my friends won’t be able to make it. Sun Theater has also announce a May 19th showing. YAY! It’s a fun theater for Rocky. Hopefully they have louder speakers this time and that they remember to tell the virgins that we yell at the screen. Then there’s Ionia who TOTAL got the jump on every one and have already announced their Halloween show. Unfortunately, they have chosen Oct 27th, so will get totally drowned out by all the other Halloween shows where as last year they were a week early. Hooray for Rocky showings!!

September 2010 update!

I have finally gotten around to updating the site to WordPress. I hated having the horrible looking slit screen of the old site. It looked stupid, but I also wanted an easy want to keep it updated. I have now updated all my web site but 2 to wordpress and have found them SO much easier to keep things updated. The theme isn’t the best, but it will do for now. So I only know about 3 showing coming up this October.

 

State Theater -Ann Arbor – Oct 22-23rd with the Tickle me Fancy burlesque troupe(not a true Rocky cast)

 

Michigan Theater – Jackson – Oct 30th with Painted Perversion

 

I now have a nifty plugging on the side announcing upcoming shows. Click the link for more info on these shows. Royal Oak Music Theater says they are working on getting Rocky, but so far have nothing to announce.

 

I have not heard from Obivions Wife and Kids, Fuzzy Memories, nor the Tender Subjects.

 

Cast director for Painted Perversion Jon is direct a showing of  “The Rocky Horror Show”(which means the stage play). He is also still looking for cast members. For full details, check his post…

 

http://community.livejournal.com/mrhps/3795.html

 

Let me know if you know of more shows and I will do the same!
