About The Show

It's Back! The Detroit Actor's Theatre Company's Shadow Cast is back and Better than ever! The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a 1975 musical comedy horror film written by Richard O'Brian and directed by Jim Sharman. Based on the 1973 musical stage production, The Rocky Horror Show, tThe production is a satirical tribute to the science fiction and horror B movies of the 1930s through early 1970s. The film stars Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick along with cast members from the original Royal Court Theatre, Roxy Theatre and Belasco Theatre productions.

The story centers on a young engaged couple whose car breaks down in the rain near a castle where they seek a telephone to call for help. The castle is occupied by strangers in elaborate costumes celebrating an annual convention. They discover the head of the house is Frank N. Furter, an apparent mad scientist who actually is an alien transvestite who creates a living muscle man in his laboratory. The couple is seduced separately by the mad scientist and eventually released by the servants who take control.

This year, the show will open in the center of Downtown Detroit at Campus Martius Park on October 24th. There are also performances at the Olympus Hall at the new menjos Complex on October 29 and 30th and November 7th. Audience participation is strongly encouraged!
