It's the biggest and baddest rock'n'roll musical ever — it's the Rocky Horror Show!

October 26-29, 2006 & October 31, 20067:30 p.m. at the PIX/Capri Theatre
On the way to visit an old college professor, the two clean-cut kids, Brad Majors and his fiancée Janet Weiss run into car trouble and seek help at the site of a light down the road. It's coming from the Frankenstein place, where Dr. Frank N. Furter is in the midst of one of his maniacal experiments...
Follow squeaky clean Brad and Janet on an adventure they'll never forget, with the scandalous Frank N. Furter, rippling Rocky and vivacious Magenta. Get ready for a night of fun, frolics and frivolity. Bursting at the seams with timeless classics, including "Sweet Transvestite", "Damn It Janet", and of course, the pelvic-thrusting "Time Warp". Richard O'Brien's The Rocky Horror Show just can't stop partying! Ready to thrill you with its frothy fun and naughty moments, this is the boldest bash of them all, so fish out the fishnets, buff up your basque and sharpen those stilettos for the rockiest ride of your life! Don't dream it, be it.
Created by Richard O'Brien who wrote the book, music and lyrics, this homage to the horror film is as "SEXY AND FUNNY AS EVER" -London's Daily Telegraph
PLEASE NOTE: The PIX/Capri is under renovation - therefore, no a/c, heat, or seats. Please bring your own lawn chair, camp chair, or cushion to sit on, and dress for the current outdoor temperature! Also, this is the live Broadway musical version of the show, performed by a company of 18 actors, and NOT the film version. While there will be an opportunity for some audience participation, please DO NOT bring props or other items usually associated with the film presentation (i.e., water pistols, toast, rice, toilet paper, etc). Your cooperation is very much appreciated.
