Director's Note

Every Saturday night since 1977, people have donned corsets, ripped fishnets, maid costumes, and gold underwear to come together with a group of strangers to chant, sing, and throw hotdogs at a screen. The Rocky Horror Picture Show (the film version of The Rocky Horror Show) is not only a cult classic, it is so much more. 


It is single-handedly responsible for keeping small theatres and cinemas open. It heavily influenced the punk movement in England. It gave queer representation in a time where there was none to be seen. It is campy, silly, over-the-top, with incredibly catchy music. But more than all of that, it provides people with what we need the most.



Rocky Horror brings people together. Whether audience members come to celebrate gender-fluidity and pansexuality, or to identify with the outcasts because we all know what it’s like to be ostracized. Whether you come because you like to sing along or shout the callbacks. Maybe you’re here because you know it’s safe for you to dress the way you want. Maybe you’re here to be you. Or maybe someone dragged you along one day and for some unknown reason you too, were hit by the bug. Maybe someone dragged you along today.


No matter the reason that brought you, for the next two hours you are a part of a community. You are among people having the same immersive experience, shouting the same “asshole!” and “slut!” to the stage as you are, singing the same songs, taking that same step to the right, celebrating and loving the same campy, silly, over-the-top show. You are with your people. 


I am so incredibly proud of every single person in this production. Not only are they all incredibly passionate and talented, they are equally lovely people. And I think the chemistry on stage speaks to the friendships they’ve forged in the fires of this show. 


Rocky Horror brings people together. 


Thank you for joining our community tonight.
