CCT gets ‘active’ with Rocky Horror Picture Show


 The Chickasha Community Theatre will be hosting a one night only showing of the Rocky Horror Picture Show in the Historic Washita Theater in Downtown Chickasha (509 Chickasha Avenue).
 The show will be held on Saturday, February 13th at 7:30 pm. Tickets are available at Jay’s Jewelery, downtown or on line at www.chicakshatheatre.org. Prop bags guaranteed for advance ticket holders. The box office will be open one hour prior to showtime for same day ticket purchases. $20/person. For audience safety masks are required and social distancing practices will be in place.
 This is a ‘R’ rated interactive movie that encourages audience participation. According to Nerd Nation Magazine, “For decades now, The Rocky Horror Picture Show has been a “Cult Classic” in every sense of the word. The bizarre, over-the-top, and very unapologetic sci-fi/horror musical/gender-bending rock opera is a true, undeniable legend of cinema; one that cemented the legacies of such stars as Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, and even Meat Loaf. But it’s not just the film itself… far from it, even! The Rocky Horror Picture Show is all about the fans… and more specifically, the audience participation! During each showing of “Rocky” (as it’s commonly known to pretty much everyone) a group of loyal fans will do a Shadowcast (as in, literally dress up in the costumes and act out the film as it’s being shown) while the rest of the audience will engage in pre-planned shenanigans and hurl hilariously insulting lines at them/the movie/each other. Think of it as one part dinner theater, one part drag show, one part roast, and of course, all parts insanity!”
 Anyone under the age of 18 will need to be accompanied by an adult. CCT encourages attendees to come in costume.
 Show sponsors include F.R. Enterprises, LaForge Properties, Rock Island Grill, Monk Chiropractic & Arvest Bank. This is a fundraiser that will help maintain and restore the Washita Theatre in downtown Chickasha.
