Got Your Party Hat? Let's Do ROCKY HORROR Again!

Getting pretty close to Halloween, aren't we? And you know what that means. It's time for the annual Rocky Horror Picture Show sponsored by Theatre of Ted in ISU's Capen Auditorium. This extravaganza combines a live performance in front of the movie, so if either is your thing, well, you're in luck.

As they bill it, "It's astounding. Time is fleeting." So, you know, let's do the time warp again!

Performances are scheduled for Friday, October 26 and Saturday, October 27. Doors open at 7 pm, with the so-called "Virgin Ceremony" a 7:30 and performances at 8. This extravaganza is priced at $5, and the first hundred people there get a free bag of props like flashlights and newspaper to use at appropriate times and make the experience that much richer.

You are invited to come in costume, shout out any lines you like, and even sing and dance with the cast.

If you bring your own props, be aware that no fire, water, rice, food, or confetti is allowed, given the fact that Capen is carpeted. You may, however, bring toilet paper, playing cards, a rubber glove, a party hat, noisemakers/party poppers, and finally a card with a picture of a piece of toast so you can throw it without actual toast crumbs getting in the carpet. The aforementioned flashlight and newspaper is also okey dokey.

Capen Auditorium is on the second floor of Edwards Hall, which is part of the Illinois State University campus in Normal, IL. It's located on the East side of University Street two buildings south of College Avenue. Parking is available in the Bone Student Center parking lot for a small charge.
