Lincs: Go crazy for a Rocky Horror sing along
The campest cult classic film of all time – The Rocky Horror Picture Show – is to be shown at The Baths Hall just in time for Halloween.
Made in 1975 with Tim Curry as Frank ‘n’ Furter, Susan Sarandon as Janet, Richard O’Brien (who also wrote the screenplay) as Riff Raff and Meatloaf as Eddie, The Rocky Horror Picture Show is one of the craziest, not to say weirdest, movies ever made.
It’s packed full of unique and memorable musical numbers including Sweet Transvestite, Whatever Happened To Saturday Night?, Science Fiction Double Feature, Toucha Toucha Touch Me and, most memorably, The Time Warp.
As a stage show, the Rocky Horror Show has been an unqualified success and remains as popular as ever.
Last year, it celebrated it’s 40th anniversary and still plays to packed houses of people all dressed up in black women’s underwear and other camp and fetishistic costumes.
Indeed, it’s almost considered bad form not to be dressed for the occasion.
Now at long last The Rocky Horror Picture Show gets what it’s been waiting for - the full Sing-along-a treatment that has wowed audiences around the world.
And it is coming to The Baths Hall in Scunthorpe for one night only on 30th October.
The fun-filled show starts with a vocal warm-up led by the evening’s host.
They will also take the audience through their complimentary ‘magic moments fun pack’, which will contain various props to be used at strategic points throughout the film.
This is followed by a fancy-dress competition in which everyone who has come in costume is invited onto the stage to show off their imaginative creations.
The audience then settles down to sing its heart out with on-screen lyrics so everyone can join in.
In the case of Sing-a-long-a Rocky Horror, expect the howling to go on all night.
Fancy dress is not obligatory but highly recommended.
