Winston-Salem Theatre Alliance to perform The Rocky Horror Show
The Winston-Salem Theatre Alliance will present it’s fourth production of The Rocky Horror Show Oct. 11 thru Oct. 27 (SEE TIMES/DATES BELOW) at the Theatre Alliance, 1047 Northwest Blvd in Winston-Salem.
The production is based on the Book, Music and Lyrics by Richard O’Brien and Directed by Jamie Lawson.
That sweet transvestite and his motley crew did the time warp, and, just in time for Halloween, they’re back for a revival. Complete with sass from the audience, cascading toilet paper and an array of other audience participation props, this deliberately kitschy rock ‘n’ roll sci-fi gothic is more fun than ever.
This is Theatre Alliance’s fourth production of The Rocky Horror Show. The musical that spawned the cult movie and its continual midnight showings, this stage show has all the familiar elements, from the “Science Fiction Double Feature” opening to dancing “The Time Warp” — and a department store’s worth of fishnets.
Just like at the movie version, callbacks are allowed and encouraged! There will also be prop kits available for sale, and patrons are allowed to bring their own props, as long as there is nothing biological – no water guns, open flames, hot dogs/toast/rice throwing – for the safety of the rest of the audience and the performers.
Says Artistic Director Jamie Lawson, “This Rocky Horror is ready to mesmerize you with trashy nostalgia! We can hardly stand the antici……pation ourselves!”
“A musical that deals with mutating identity and time warps becomes one of the most mutated, time warped phenomena in show business.”- The New York Times
“Campy trash.”- Time
