Let’s do the time warp again, St. Pete! The Duke Energy Center for The Arts – The Mahaffey Theater will host a spectacular viewing of the cult classic film/musical The Rocky Horror Picture Show on Sunday, October 2. The antici…pation is palpable for this interactive evening. The one-and-only Barry Bostwick, who many will know as Brad Majors, will be in attendance for the screening in the Sunshine City.
Bostwick will be joined by a live shadow cast, Tampa’s own Hell on Heels, and audience participation is of course encouraged. Rocky Horror Picture Show fanatics will also be able to gaze at a memorabilia display with artifacts and an actual costume from the movie. Dress in your finest film-inspired garb because there will be a costume contest. Audience participation bags will be available for purchase in the Lobby prior to the start of the show.
Those looking for an even more immersive experience are in luck. VIP Meet & Greet tickets are available for this performance. VIP tickets include preferred seating for the performance, plus the opportunity to meet Barry Bostwick himself, have a personal photo taken, and get an autograph.
For those who are unaware of the film, here’s the basic breakdown: A newly-engaged couple have a breakdown in an isolated area and must seek shelter at the bizarre residence of Dr. Frank-n-Furter.
A plethora of musical moments ensue. The costumes, the sets, the Meatloaf cameo, it’s an absolute interactive cinematic feast.
The theater is location at 400 1st Street South.
