One of the songs is called “There’s a Light” with Brad and Janet singing about a light over at a castle they just passed. This is when the audience in the dark just waves glow sticks or holds up lighters along to the song, and it looks amazing.
Costumes aren’t mandatory: Not a costume fan? Don’t fret. Just because this is a glorious costume opportunity doesn’t mean you need to be all decked out. Wear whatever you want, there are no expectations! You can dress in a costume that’s Rocky Horror related, you can dress in a costume that’s not. You can wear anything. We’re all there to have a good time in a safe space for self-expression.
Note that this year’s event has no shadow cast. For this Halloween’s edition, we’re going back to the essence of the early Rocky Horror Picture Show screenings. This includes gathering together in the spirit of the original 1975 cult film: wearing the costumes of favourite characters or any other fun outfit along with the costume contest; audience members dancing the Time Warp; throwing fun stuff at each other in a beautiful, vintage movie palace; and shouting out favourite lines, while being led through the whole thing by a fabulous and talented emcee.
Go all in on this experience in whatever way feels fun for you. Dance, laugh, yell, wear something fabulous, and channel your inner Rocky Horror character. See you at the Picture Show!!!
