After-Show Gala on Saturday, October 25


WARNING: The Rocky Horror Show is not recommended for the easily offended. This show deals with MATURE subject matters in an IMMATURE way.


The cult classic movie comes to life!
A humorous tribute to the science fiction and horror B movies of the late 1940s through to the early 1970s, this musical tells the story of  two clean-cut kids, Brad Majors and his fiancée Janet Weiss. On the way to visit an old college professor, they run into tire trouble and seek help at the strange “house with a light” just down the road. The light is coming from the Frankenstein place, where Dr Frank N. Furter, is in the midst of one of his maniacal experiments. Come along for the ride as Brad and Janet meet Riff-Raff, Magenta, Columbia, Rocky and more and embark on a night that they will never forget!


One of the things that makes The Rocky Horror Show so much fun is the ability for the audience to become an active participant in the show. To fully enjoy The Rocky Horror Show experience, we will have participation kits available, which will include the audience script and props to use and throw and blow all during the production. If you come all decked out in Rocky Horror costume, you will receive your participation kit for FREE.

The Rocky Horror Show is produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc

Beyond the RLT – October/November 2014

Beyond the RLT Logo

By Wendell Barnes

Halloween is in the air, and RLT has offered one of the scariest and quirkiest shows ever for the season, “The Rocky Horror Show.”  Of course, this show is not for everyone, so you may not want to see it more than once, but there are some other choices around the state that you might want to partake of now that the weather has cooled off and you are seeking a warm place to be entertained.  So come with me on a magic carpet ride “Beyond the RLT!”  Of course, we also will have this year the community joint production of “The Nutcracker” sponsored by RLT, local dance companies, Rome’s Own Musical Ensembles and Berry College, running November 21st and 22nd at Rome City Auditorium, Friday and Saturday at 8:00 and Saturday at 2:30 p.m., and this and other holiday shows will be covered in the next issue of “Backstage Pass.” Continue reading
