‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ set to debut

It’s Wolfbane’s 10th birthday — and what better way to celebrate than Richard O’Brien’s ultimate party classic, “The Rocky Horror Show.”

According to a press release, Wolfbane Productions, in association with Jamerson Building Supply and Williams Collision Center, is bringing the musical to the castle in the woods located at the Wolfbane Performing Arts Center (Wolf P.A.C.) from Sept. 7-30.

“Gates open at 7 p.m. and the show begins at 8 p.m.,” officials said in the release. “Upgrade your ticket to the Floor Show for the full Rocky experience and your chance to participate in the action. This show contains strong sexual themes and language.”

A fun loving tribute to horror and science fiction B-movies, “The Rocky Horror Show” chronicles a very unusual evening in the lives of the newly engaged couple, Brad Majors and Janet Weiss, as their car breaks down in the woods on a dark and stormy night. Their lives soon change as they enter a nearby castle and meet Dr. Frank N’ Furter, a “transvestite” mad scientist, his creepy sidekicks and tailor made creations and the band. The release cites that “The Rocky Horror Show” stars Ken Arpino and Leanne A. Smith as “Brad and Janet”, Matt Densky as “Riff Raff,” Logan Alexis Troyer as “Magenta,” Sophie Moshofsky as “Columbia,” BJ Gruber as “Rocky,” Beverly Owens as “Dr. Scott,” and Luke Milhoan as “Eddie,” Hubbard Farr as “Frank N’ Furter” and Bill Bodine as “Narrator.”

“Rounding out this incredible company are ‘Phantoms’ Joshua Boyce, Shelbie Filson, Stephen Sargeant, and Katana Scannell and our band, Holly Phelps, Gregory E. Robey, Aaron Vaders-Collins and Seth Westgate,” officials said in a release. “This production features artistic direction by Dustin Williams, music direction by Troy Mearkle, with lighting design by Scott Chapman, costumes by Christine Yepsen and Rebecca Myrie and stage management by Christine Yepsen.”

Wolfbane is partnering with The Babcock House for pre-show dinner specials every show night and the brand new Appomattox Inn and Suites will also be offering a Wolfbane room rate of $89 a night all season long.
