'Rocky Horror Show' comes Downriver
“The Rocky Horror Show,” the most hilarious rock and roll stage musical ever, will be performed live as a fund-raiser for the advancement of the arts in the City of Taylor.
Proudly presented by the Taylor Cultural Arts Commission and the nonprofit Friends of the Arts, the cult musical comedy will be performed four times by the Downriver Actors Guild at the Huron High School Civic Auditorium, located at 32044 Huron River Road in New Boston, across the street from the Michigan Memorial Cemetery.
Show times are 8 p.m. October 21, 27 and 28. There also is a midnight show on October 28, true to the Rocky Horror legend. All tickets are assigned seating and are $15 for the show only or $25 for premier seating.
The members of the actors guild are the same performers who presented last fall’s sold-out smash hit “Nunsense” at the William Ford Senior Activity Center in Taylor. The cast and musicians also have previously performed at the Trenton Village Theater. John Sartor, who plays Brad, was with the national and international tour of “Hair.”
The cult musical comedy is an outrageous audience participation production that encourages the audience to dress up in costume. Spectators yell out call back lines to the actors and use props at various times during the performance. This is a live production, not the film, and features the talents of many local non-equity professional actors and musicians. It is directed and choreographed by Dione Carrico. While this show is very fun and frivolous, it is also filled with adult subject matter and parental discretion is advised.
No outside props will be allowed inside the theater. Survival kits with everything needed for the show will be available at the door for a nominal fee.
