‘Rocky Horror’ comes to Negaunee

For anyone looking to see a quirky play this Halloween season, Negaunee’s Vista Theater may have the right one for you.

The Peninsula Arts Appreciation Council is performing The Rocky Horror Show.  The play is about two wholesome kids who find themselves in a mature situation.

“They stumble across some aliens who are not afraid of who they are, and it’s a larger than life kind of thing,” co-director Martha Webster said.

“It’s a show about finding yourself, they really come across as who they really are, and everyone accepts them that way,” co-director Eliisa Gladwell said.

The Rocky Horror Show also has a lot of audience interaction, including opportunity to dress up and throw things near the stage.

“It’s only half a production until the audience comes in and they’re participating, singing along, dancing along, giving these call backs…throwing things,” Webster said.  “They’re just a big part of it as the actors on stage.”

“It’s such a fun show, everyone comes out here and no one judges you,” Gladwell said.  “And it’s a tradition here in Negaunee for sure, and everyone loves it so much.”

Performances are October 25 and 26, and October 30 and 31 at 7:30 p.m., with an additional midnight showing on October 26.

Tickets are $12 per person, and $15 for the midnight performance.  No one under the age of 13 is allowed, unless accompanied by an adult.
