THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW Opens Next Week at ShenanArts

THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW Opens Next Week at ShenanArts

Innocent Brad and Janet find themselves seeking shelter at a mysterious old castle on a dark and stormy night, where they encounter transvestite Dr. Frank 'n' Furter, his "perfect" creation Rocky, and an assortment of other crazy creatures.

A parody tribute to the science fiction and horror B movies of the 1930s through early 1970s, this hilariously dark and foreboding musical invites you to leave your inhibitions at the door, and revel in the strange and absurd. Fans of the film will recognize many of the songs, such as "Science Fiction Double Feature", "Damn it Janet", "Time Warp", "Sweet Transvestite", "Hot Patootie", and more.

SPONSOR ~ Redbeard Brewing

Redbeard Brewing Company, LLC is downtown Staunton's first brewery since prohibition. The brewery, a 40 seat Taproom, and outdoor Beer Garden are located at 120 S. Lewis St in the Wharf District. 8 or more American, English, and Belgian Ales are available mere feet from where they were brewed, fermented, and packaged. The majority of Redbeard Brewing Company's beers are as close to "Real Ale" as you will find in Virginia, as all are warm fermented, unfiltered, and naturally carbonated in the kegs they are served from. We brew Small Batches of Big Beers for our neighbors and visitors to enjoy.
