Genesius Theatre Performing ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ at Shocktoberfest

“Let’s do the Time Warp Again!” Genesius Theatre presents “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” this weekend in Sinking Spring. Held on the grounds of Shocktoberfest, the cast will perform only four shows, October 16, 17, 18.

With the deliciously creepy backdrop of Pat Konopelski’s Shocktoberfest, it’s the perfect setting to present this whacky Broadway musical based on the ‘uber popular audience participation film “The Rocky Horror Picture Show”! The musical version has audience participation as well! Genesius’ production of this time-honored musical is a must-see for “virgins” and fans alike.

In regard to audience participation, the audience is welcome to purchase “Survival Bags” which have props they can use to participate during the show. The $10.00 bags can be purchased at the door or purchased online and picked up at the door. Limited quantities per performance, the bags are first come, first serve. Genesius is not allowing audience members to bring their own props to the show.

Genesius has assembled yet another awesome cast of local talents, starting with veteran actor, James Barksdale, as the sweet transvestite from Transsexual, Transylvania, Frank N. Furter.

The show also features Genesius newcomers Zach Haines as Brad, and Collin T. Bollinger as Riff Raff… add to that Genesius regulars, Becka Malanios as Magenta, Dara Himes as Janet, Jon Browning as Eddie/Dr. Scott, Christina Haws as Columbia, Jahlil Little as Rocky and Christopher Sperat as the Narrator… along with an ensemble of Rocky Horror Phantoms and this group will truly rock the shock!

The Rocky Horror Show is seen as an influence on the countercultural and sexual liberation movements following its creation. O’Brien describes the musical as a celebration of difference that allows marginalized communities to gather and coexist.
