It is about time that I blog about the Orangeville Music Theather because they always have awesome shows. The Rocky Horror Picture Show is one of my all time favorite films so this weekend Friday/Saturday October 27 & 28 they will be performing at Horizons Event Centre located on Hwy 10 right behind the Mono Plaza.
I don’t get out to enough comedy shows, even though I always have a great time. Orangeville has a phenomenal art community, so I’m sure this show won’t disappoint.
The Doors open at 7:00 pm show starts at 8:00 pm — and there will be an after party with the Band playing till 12:00am. You can also dress up as there will be prizes for best costumes. Also, the event is 19 and older as there the event is licensed under LCBO!
Tickets are still available at a cost of $25.00 and can be purchased at Acoustic traditions on the west side of Orangeville located next to the LCBO and the Brick! You can also get them online….just click here
Now for some history of the Movie……..
Shown for the first time in 1975 it has the longest-running theatrical release in film history. Some cinemas have shown the film decades at a time. The film is a adaptation of The Rocky Show written by Richard O’Brien (How plays Riff Raff in the film) and directed by Jim Sharman.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show is mad, sexy, glitzy, funny, naughty, with fantastic music and a brilliant cast. And the film doesn’t take itself too seriously either. The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a parody/tribute to B-movies, horror films and sciece fiction.
The story is narrated by a criminologist and tells the story of newly engaged Brad Majors and Janet Weiss (Barry Bostwick & Susan Sarandon). One night the young couple get lost, with a flat tire, and decide to stop off at a nearby castle to get som help. This is the residents of Dr. Frank N Furter (Tim Curry), his servants Riff Raff (Richard O’Brien) and Magenta (Patricia Quinn) and bunch of fellow Transylvanians holding an Annual Transylvanian Convention. Dr. Frank N Furter claims to have discovered the “secret to life itself” and soon Brad and Janet are swept into this crazy world ( like Meatloaf as an ex-delivery boy and brain donor.
