The Alamogordo Music Theatre has recently begun rehearsals for The Rocky Horror Show! Rocky Horror originally opened in London theaters in 1973. The story was then made into The Rocky Horror Picture Show movie in 1975 and burst into a cult phenomenon.
For those unfamiliar with Rocky Horror, the performance tells a story of a young couple – Brad (Daniel Humm) and Janet (Stacy Beaupre) – who end up at the mysterious castle of Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Lee Austin). The night takes many twists and turns, throwing them into a world unlike any they have ever known. Unfortunately for them, this evening out is destined to be one they will never forget.
The show blends film genre tropes such as science-fiction, Gothic fantasy and horror in a mishmash of styles that pokes fun at the B-movies of the 1950’s. In addition, the production boasts a great rock and roll score with songs like “Science Fiction, Double Feature”, “Damn it, Janet” and the iconic piece “The Time Warp”. Unlike the popular midnight movie sing-a-longs, this is a live stage production of Rocky Horror. The people who have been cast in the show will be doing a completely live theatrical creation.
Dates for the AMT production of The Rocky Horror Show are November 3, 4, 10, 11 at 7 PM. There will be an additional special midnight show at 11:59 PM the evening of November 4th. All performances will be at the Flickinger Center.
