Back with gender-bending abandon, the Barn Theatre School presents The Rocky Horror Show, playing October 18 – 20 & 25 – 27. Do the Time Warp again!
Joining the company for the Barn Theatre’s 12th incarnation of its most popular production is Alan Palmer in the starring role of Dr. Frank‘N’Furter.
The Rocky Horror Show is a parody of old horror and science fiction movies combined with a rock show. A presumably decent, conservative couple named and Brad and Janet, played by newcomer Beau Hutchings and Barn favorite Melissa Cotton Hunter, respectively, have a flat tire one rainy dark night. They seek help in a nearby castle which turns out to be the lair of a latter-day Dr. Frankenstein, whose wardrobe rivals Fredericks of Hollywood. Dr. Frank‘N’Furter, Equity newcomer Alan Palmer, is on the eve of bringing his gorgeous creation, Rocky, Barn favorite Jonnie Carpathios, to life. The science-fiction spoof will also star Brendan Ragotzy as hunchbacked handyman Riff Raff and will feature Penelope Alex as Magenta, Steven Lee Burright as the Narrator, Samantha Rickard as Columbia, Patrick Hunter as Eddie, and Charlie King as Doctor Scott.
Dedicated Rocky Horror fans are encouraged to come to the Barn in costume and dance “The Time Warp”– BUT MUST PLEASE LEAVE ALL PROPS AT HOME!! Producer Brendan Ragotzy says, “ROCKY is always so much creative fun for our company and the audience, it was time to bring it back. And our fall extravaganza is the perfect time. We’re so excited to share with the audience the new surprises in store with this ROCKY!” (Rated R: Adult Themes, Situations, and Language)
