TAP Presents “The Rocky Horror Show”
October 19, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - October 21, 2017 @ 9:00 pm
The Tred Avon Players (TAP) presents Richard O’Brien’s “The Rocky Horror Show,” with book, music and lyrics by Richard O’Brien, for two weekends in October.
Brad and Janet, two ordinary, wholesome American kids who, after their car breaks down in the middle of the night, stumble upon a castle in Ohio. The castle is filled with alien lifeforms sent to Earth to observe and report the Earthling way of life back to the planet of Transsexual in the galaxy of Transylvania. Unbeknownst to Brad and Janet, and the rest of his minions, the Crown Prince of Transsexual (Frank N. Furter) has grown bored with the mission and has decided to burrow in and indulge in the human way of life with the help of his alien subordinates, Riff Raff and Magenta.
This musical satire pays tribute to the era of B movie horrors and science fiction. The story unfolds with humor and intrigue that leads the audience on a wide ride of a night to remember enriched by the music and lyrics of “Science Fiction Double Feature,” “The Time Warp” and more. Meet the residents of the castle: Frank N Furter, Riff Raff, Magenta and others.
