Get ready to do the “time warp” when Nazareth College’s Department of Theatre Arts and Theatre League bring Richard O’Brien’s silly, sexy musical “The Rocky Horror Show” to Nazareth College Arts Center’s Callahan Theater, 4245 East Avenue, Rochester. Performances are at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, April 16 and 17, and the following week-end, April 23 and 24. Matinee performances begin at 2 p.m. on Sundays, April 18 and 25. And, in true Rocky Horror tradition, there will be a special midnight performance on Friday, April 23. Tickets are $15 general admission; $14 for students and $13 for seniors; mature audiences only. To purchase tickets, call the Nazareth College Arts Center Box Office at (585) 389-2170 or order on-line at boxoffice.naz.edu.
Please note: In Rocky Horror Show tradition, the audience may throw newspaper, confetti, and toast. The audience is PROHIBITED from throwing liquids, rice and hotdogs.
When their car breaks down in a rainstorm, a young couple is forced to look for and accept help from the bizarre residents of a rundown mansion. A mad scientist and his wacky, not-altogether human assistants give the young couple—and the audience—a night to remember! Since the show was first staged nearly 40 years ago, “The Rocky Horror Show” and the movie it inspired have become cult classics.
The Rocky Horror Show is directed by Dr. Matt Ames. The cast includes Nazareth College students Adam Andrianopoulos (Eddie), Brent Burkhart (Rocky), Scott Charles (Riff Raff), Marissa Davis (Phantom/Ensemble), Scott Duell (Frank), Tiffany Everspaugh (Dr. Scott), Marlena Gaby-Dater (Columbia), Katie Ganem (Phantom/Ensemble), Annie Girven (Phantom/Ensemble), Erin Hassett (Phantom/Ensemble), Laura High (Narrator), Owen Jones (Brad), Kate Keating (Janet), Joshua Lau (Phantom/Ensemble), Katie Murphy (Phantom/Ensemble), Zak West (Phantom/Ensemble), Lzay Whalen (Uherette/Magenta), and Brian Ziemann (Phantom/Ensemble).
