Barn Theatre Extends Season With Rocky Horror Show
I just had my first experience going to the Barn Theatre School in Augusta last week when I saw Evil Dead: The Musical and it was amazing. I'm even more excited because that was supposed to be the final show of their season. They've decided to thrill, chill, and fulfill us with an encore to their season, by adding Richard O'Brien's Rocky Horror Show on the weekends of October 18th, 19th, & 20th, and also on the 25th, 26th, and 27th.
Special show times are Fridays @ 8 p.m. Saturdays @ 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. Sundays @ 5 p.m. Dedicated Rocky Horror fans are encouraged to come to the Barn in costume and dance “The Time Warp”– BUT MUST PLEASE LEAVE ALL PROPS AT HOME!!
The story of THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW is a parody of old horror and science fiction movies, in a style that combines a rock show and a transvestite chorus revue. A presumably decent, conservative couple named and Brad and Janet, engaged to be married, have a flat tire while driving in the rain on a dark night. They seek help in a nearby castle. It turns out to be the lair of a latter-day Dr. Frankenstein named Dr. Frank ‘N’ Furter. Rather than the traditional mad scientist, though, this version is a visiting transvestite from Transylvania, with a wardrobe that rivals Frederick’s of Hollywood. The plot further unfolds to reveal that Dr. Frank “N” Furter is on the eve of bringing his gorgeous creation, Rocky, to life.
