Lakeland Players staging 'Rocky Horror Show'
ELKHORN--Lakeland Player s will perform a seasonal treat—that includes a Halloween night performance—with “Rocky Horror Show" Oct.25, 26 and 31 and Nov. 1 and 2 at The Walworth County Performing Arts Center, 15 W. Walworth St., Elkhorn. All shows are at 7:30 p.m.
“Rocky Horror,” a musical by Richard O'Brien, is a humorous tribute to the science fiction and horror B-movies from the 1940's through the early 1970's. It tells the story of a newly engaged couple getting caught in a rainstorm and coming to the home of a mad transvestite scientist unveiling his new creation, a muscle man named "Rocky Horror." The show does include adult content.
The musical was also adapted into the film "The Rocky Horror Picture Show," which today has a "cult" following and is the longest running release in film history. Filmgoers frequently bring items—from confetti to gloves-- to play with as the action on screen dictates.
While carry-in prop bags won't be allowed at the Lakeland Players' performances, prop bags will be for sale at the theater. Lakeland Players also encourage patrons to come dressed in costume.
The production is co-directed by David Whitney, and Amber Fox. Whitney also is the choreographer. Amberleigh Aller is the musical director, with Linda Kouzes producing.
