BPA Stages Cult Classic THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW

"Let's do the Time Warp Again!" Head to Bainbridge Island for a spooky night out and the cult classic - The Rocky Horror Show - October 11 - 27 at Bainbridge Performing Arts. Stuck with a flat tire during a storm, sweethearts Brad and Janet discover the eerie mansion of Dr. Frank N. Furter and his household of unforgettable characters. BPA's production of Richard O'Brien's time-honored musical is a must-see for "virgins" and fans alike.

The Rocky Horror Show's creative team will be familiar to BPA audiences: Director/Choreographer Joanna Hardie previously directed BPA's Xanadu, A Christmas Story, The Little Mermaid, and The Drowsy Chaperone. Her choreography has also been seen at BPA in Little Shop of Horrors, Shrek, The Full Monty, Chicago, The Rocky Horror Show, and A Chorus Line. Musical Director Will Sanders was a member of the BPA Mainstage Band in Mamma Mia, Xanadu, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Big Fish, and A Christmas Story. Assistant Choreographer Alex Ung has choreographed A Chorus Line, Elf, and Xanadu at BPA. This September, Olympic Performance Group brings The Guild Dance Company of Seattle to perform Ung's Immigration Stories, a choreographic historical odyssey retelling a family's forced migration.

Together, the trio leads a dazzling cast starring Adam Minton as FRANK N. FURTER, Mikaela Karter as JANET, Brandon Weglin as BRAD, Ellen Dessler Smith as MAGENTA, David Hardie as RIFF RAFF, Joey Chapman as ROCKY, Gabrielle Mehlman as COLUMBIA, Rachel Brinn as EDDIE / DR. SCOTT, Andrea Ogg as NARRATOR, and Matthew Manguso, Alex Sanso, Philippa Myler, Laura Sposato, and E Cady as PHANTOMS.
