The Hilo Community Players will present a distanced, drive-in style, live production of Richard O’Brien’s THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW, Oct. 22, 23, 24, 29, 30 & 31 at 7:30 p.m. at the Afook-Chinen Civic Auditorium Parking Lot. Tickets are available now at HiloPlayers.org. More info below.
When Brad and Janet’s car gets a flat tire, they seek help from the threateningly sexy Frank’N’ Furter, the master of a strange castle in the middle of the woods, filled with a bizarre cast of characters. Not least of these unusual characters is Rocky Horror, and a hunky muscle man created Frankenstein style by Dr. Frank’N’Furter. In the hilarious cult classic, which parodies many sci-fi and horror films, when Brad and Janet are greeted by the butler Riff-Raff, little do they know the entire cast of weirdos that lies within the castle. Along with servants Magenta and Colombia, a group of Transylvanians trick the young couple into doing the Time Warp and letting down their guard. Rescue from this unusual band of strangers seems possible with the appearances of both Eddie and Dr. Scott, but if you’re a ‘Rocky Virgin,’ you’ll have to see what happens!
Tickets are extremely limited, so reserve them now.
