Do the Time Warp with Rocky Horror— live this weekend in Rossland

The Rossland Light Opera Players give themselves over to absolute pleasure

The Rocky Horror Picture Show, a live musical theatre version, hits the Miners Hall in Rossland this weekend.

“It’s one heck of a crazy show,” is how producer Denis Senecal of the Rossland Light Opera Players describes this cult classic from the 1970s.

Senecal had actually never seen the show before and now he just can’t stop doing the Time Warp. Again.

A humorous tribute to the science-fiction and B horror movies of the late 1940s and ‘50s, Rocky Horror became a huge cult hit after it graduated from the stage to movies in the mid-1970s.

The musical tells the story of a newly engaged couple getting caught in a storm and coming to the home of a mad transvestite scientist, Dr. Frank-N-Furter.

Losing all of their innocence, Brad Majors and Janet Weiss, “go on a strange, strange journey” when Frank-N-Furter reveals his new creation. It’s a sort of Frankenstein-style monster in the form of an artificially made, fully grown, physically perfect muscle man named Rocky Horror, complete “with blond hair and a tan.”

Slowly, Brad and Janet give in to absolute pleasure.

The show is directed by Agatha Storie and is led on the local stage by veteran actor Zak Higgins. Most of the cast are superfans and burst with energy on the stage.

This is a live musical production of The Rocky Horror Show and admission is restricted to those 19 and older.

There are four shows at the Rossland Miners Hall — today, tomorrow, and Saturday, along with a special Saturday performance at midnight.

Wear your favourite sexy costume, buy a piece of toast to throw at the cast, and prepare to belt out your favourite songs.

Audience participation is what makes this show an unforgettable experience.

Tickets available online at RLOP.ca, Bay Avenue Music in Trail and Tails pet store in Rossland.
