Based on the hit play with music, book and lyrics by Richard O'Brien, who also co-wrote the screenplay and played 'Riff Raff' on stage and in the film, The Rocky Horror Picture Show was a phenomenon in the mid-70s that had teenagers dressing in drag, throwing toast, shouting lines at the screen such as "Superman!" (when actor, Barry Bostwick as Brad, removes his Clark Kent-type glasses) shooting squirt guns during the rain scene, throwing rice during the wedding scene, and acting out the film in front of the screen. Lines of costumed movie-goers would form around the block for the midnight screenings of the darkly comic, gender-bending musical horror film that gave young people who were a bit different a place to come together and feel accepted and safe. The plot focuses on a seemingly normal couple, Brad & Janet (Barry Bostwick and Susan Sarandon) who break down on a rainy night and seek assistance at a creepy house inhabited by mad-scientist, Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry) a "sweet transvestite from transexual Transylvania." Afraid and horrified at first, Brad and Janet soon fall under his spell and find themselves a part of the merry melee. The film is a parody of and tribute to the B movie horror films and science fiction films of the 1930s. Among other hilarious and unexpected moments, the film features an appearance by rock star, Meat Loaf who sings "Hot Patootie."

Time is fleeting, so dig out your corset, grab the hairspray to do up your best Magenta hair and don your fishnets because you've got a show to see and a party to be a part of at The Ridgefield Playhouse on October 26th!
