Show Details
Let’s do the Time Warp again! Richard O’Brien’s “The Rocky Horror Show” is the full stage rock musical that led to the (in)famous Mother-of-All-Cult-Films, “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” In this sexy romp, our Sweet Transvestite, Dr. Frank N. Furter, and his not-so-merry gang of Transylvanians from Outer Space host two hapless suburbanites for a night after which “nothing will ever be the same.”

This is not the film and shadow cast experience. No screens, no lip syncing. Auditioners should be prepared to dance, act and sing.

A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR: As you prepare for your audition, there are a few things to think about. This production will not be the standard, typical version of the show. This production will be set in 198o’s during the Punk Rock period. I need people who are willing to risk possibly looking silly in order to create something magical. Your physical appearance is the very last thing I will consider. If you can do all of the things mentioned above and happen to be physically different than what you are used to seeing with these characters, you could find yourself cast. With the exception of the character of Rocky, what you look like will have very little influence on casting. I am VERY interested in people of color and people different body types. Rocky is about embracing what makes you different and loving YOU for YOU. I am really looking for my own talented band of weirdos to take this journey with. Think you have what it takes? I’d love to see you! Due to the mature content of this show, we will only be able to cast people 18 and over. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: This is technically a “revival” production based on the 2015 production. A good majority of the original cast will be returning, but we are looking for a few amazing actors to fill out the Phantom (Ensemble) and the role of Brad.
