‘Rocky Horror Show’ to open at Clear Space Oct. 15

October 13, 2021

Clear Space Theatre is doing the Time Warp ... again.

Clear Space Theatre’s 17th season continues with “The Rocky Horror Show,” running three weekends, Friday to Sunday, Oct. 15 to 17, Oct. 22 to 24 and Oct. 29 to 31. Shows are at 7 p.m., Fridays; 7 and 11 p.m., Saturdays; and 2 p.m., Sundays.

A  musical tribute to the famous science fiction B-movie with lyrics and book by Richard O’Brien, “Rocky Horror Show” centers around a newly engaged couple, Brad and Janet, as a storm forces them to enter the home of the mad transvestite scientist, Dr. Frank-N-Furter. The musical has gained cult classic status, much like the movie, with songs like “Time Warp,” “Science Fiction – Double Feature,” “Damn it, Janet” and “Sweet Transvestite.”

Last seen in the 2021 summer repertory, Christopher Decker (Frank-N-Furter), Lars Hafell (Brad), and Mady Rogers (Janet) are returning to lead the cast in this iconic and wildly popular musical. Playing the role made famous by Tim Curry in the movie and onstage, Decker said the most exciting part of this experience is being able to bring such an iconic character to life on stage.

Other actors returning to the Clear Space production include Leilani Anupol, Amanda Aris, Grace Baeurle, River Bellistri, Drew Colegrove, Lorraine Leavel, Chase Mears, Rick Nazzaro, Elli Oechsler, Dylan Phillips and Hannah Weilminster.

An 11 p.m. performance for late-night fans occurs each Saturday. Audience members can be part of the show with the “participation prop bag,” available to purchase during the late-night shows.

Dogfish Head sponsors the show.

Tickets for tables for two or four are available online. To learn more, go to ClearSpaceTheatre.org or call 302-227-2270. Audience participation is not only allowed but encouraged. The show is for mature audiences only due to harsh language, violence and sexual content.

In an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19, Clear Space Theatre requires all patrons to wear a mask inside the building.
