Theatre fans are sure to be thrilled as Kellogg Community College brings six showings of the popular musical comedy/horror classic “The Rocky Horror Show” to campus in November.
Theatre professor and show director Brad Poer called the play, “The show that invented the term cult classic.”
“It’s a rite of passage,” Poer said. “It’s going to be unique in every way imaginable.”
The plot of “The Rocky Horror Show” centers on a newly engaged couple who wind up at the home of a mad scientist after getting caught in a storm. The production inspired the 1975 feature film “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” and has since become a renowned cult classic known for audience engagement and participation.
KCC’s Spectrum student group, which works to provide a safe and supportive social setting for LGBTQIA+ individuals and their allies, will be selling prop/audience participation bags onsite with proceeds going to support group initiatives. Proceeds from the show’s ticket sales will support a KCC Theatre trip to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland in 2024.
The upcoming “Rocky Horror Show” performances at KCC include evening shows at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, Nov. 4, 5, 11 and 12, and afternoon shows at 3 p.m. Sundays, Nov. 6 and 13.
Tickets are $10 for KCC students and employees and $15 for the general public. Reservations can be made in advance by calling the KCC Box Office at 269-965-4154.
Due to mature themes, all attendees under age 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
