Richard O'Brien's THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW Returns To The Roxy Regional Theatre For The Eighth Year
Dig out your fishnet stockings and sharpen your stilettos! That sweet transvestite and his motley crew are back for the eighth year in an annual tradition on the corner of Franklin and First in Historic Downtown Clarksville.
Richard O'Brien's cult classic THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW returns to the Roxy Regional Theatre for a limited engagement on Friday, October 25, at 8:00pm. In keeping with the theatre's traditional pay-what-you-can opening night, all tickets not pre-sold at the regular ticket price will go on sale at 7:30pm that evening for a $5 minimum donation.
Ian Alexander Erbe and Yarissa Tiara Millan star as Brad Majors and his fiancee Janet Weiss -- a wholesome, well-behaved, utterly normal young couple in love -- who innocently set out to visit an old professor one fateful night.
Unfortunately, the night out is destined to be one they will never forget, when a thunderstorm and a flat tire lead them to the castle of Dr. Frank 'N' Furter -- an alien, transvestite scientist with a manic genius and insatiable libido -- played by a stiletto and fishnet stocking-clad Mike Kinzer.
A loving homage to the cult-classic, sci-fi film and horror genres with an irresistible rock 'n' roll score, this is a hilarious, wild ride that Clarksville will not soon forget!Ryan Bowie once again returns to the role of Riff Raff, alongside Melody Lieberman as Magenta, Caitie L. Moss as Columbia, Geoffrey F. Belliston as Eddie, Matthew Combs as Rocky, and Brian Best as Dr. Scott. Prepare to dance the "Time Warp" like never before to live music provided by The Roxy Band, featuring Matt McNeill on piano, John Mayes-Barron on guitar, Colin Mai on bass and Thad Wallus on drums.
