‘Rocky Horror’ hits stage in Negaunee

NEGAUNEE — It is not Halloween just yet but freak shows, aliens, monsters, and lots of inappropriate singing and dancing will all descend upon Negaunee for the next two weeks.

The Rocky Horror Show will once again grace the stage of the Vista Theater.  Rocky Horror  is synonymous with Halloween and the one-of-a-kind performance kicks off Thursday night.  If something is shocking or inappropriate, expect it to be included in the dramatically weird, on-stage, outlandish horror sensation.

“You’re probably going to be leaving the theater asking yourself, “what did I just watch”? but you will definitely have enjoyed yourself,” Rocky Horror actor Michael Darling-West said.

To properly attend a Rocky Horror show, you should bring props including, hot dogs, rice, toilet paper and toast.  And to really get into the feel of things, you should come dressed in costume–the weirder the better.

“It is filled with excitement, we have all been working so hard and we are so thrilled to get things kicked off,” Rocky Horror actor David Jilbert said.

“There is so much audience participation and you get to throw things, yell at us. the audience plays such a key part in the show we call it our missing cast member,” Rocky Horror actor Eliisa Gladwell said.  “It’s a lot of fun to have the audience in there.”

The Rocky Horror Show premiers Thursday at 7:30 p.m.  Other performances are October 24-25 and October 29-31 at 7:30 p.m.  Tickets are $12; two midnight shows (October 25 and 31) cost $15.
