Let’s do the Time-Warp again…
Yes, it’s time for the annual Halloween season revival of the original audience participation cult film “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” screening in 35mm at the Palace Theatre in Albany at 7pm on Monday (October 21). Of course, the film will be accompanied by the live shadowcast, the Picked On Kids. Tickets are $7. And don’t forget the rice, newspaper, toast, toilet paper…
BUT WAIT… Have we got a deal for you! We’re giving away a pair of FREE TICKETS to the show to a lucky Nippertown reader! To enter the contest, just post a comment below. Please leave your email address, too. We won’t publish it, but we’ll use it to contact you if you win. The deadline to enter is 12noon on Monday (October 21), and the winner will be selected at random and notified on Monday afternoon. Enter today! And good luck! Congratulations to the winner, who has been notified by email.
Haven’t you always wanted to jump on stage dressed in little more than fishnet stockings, a garter belt, high heels, a bustier and pearls?
Sure you have. And now’s your chance to do it.
The Whip-It Outskirts – who bill themselves as “Albany’s premiere live ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ shadowcast troupe” – are holding open auditions from 2-7pm on Thursday at the Palace Theatre in Albany.
There are a few audition requirements, but not many of them. You don’t even need to be able to sing – it’s all lip-synching, of course.
Costumes aren’t required for the audition, either, although as the website points out “if you want to…go for it!!!” The most important tip for auditioners? “We aren’t looking for perfection…mostly we are looking for attitude!!!” Gosh, they sure do like their exclamation points, don’t they?
It’s all in preparation for a pre-Halloween performance/screening of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” at the Palace Theatre on Monday, October 25.
Come on down, all you Sweet Transvestites…
