Calling all Sluts and Assholes: Rocky Horror Fri. 10

A group of Grinnell students will perform their own interpretation of the cult film classic “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” at 10 p.m. tonight at Harris Cinema. These enthusiastic students will “shadowcast” the show, meaning that they will act out the movie in front of a playing movie screen.
Those who have never seen the movie, known as “virgins,” are encouraged to come witness a bizarre spectacle including transvestites, corsets, ray guns and the signature Time Warp dance. These virgins will be also strongly encouraged to come up stage and mingle with the cast.
During the show, student director Kelly Musselman ’11 says that the show does benefit from a few gadgets, but that prop bags will be provided for half of the theater and welcomes seasoned “Rocky” veterans to bring their own tools. However, she notes that water or any form of water related props are strictly prohibited. Whether you’ll be in head to toe fishnet, or at risk for getting marked with the quintessential red show virgin “V,” Rocky Horror promises to be raucous good time.
