The Rocky Horror Picture Show returns to Vic Theatre this Halloween season


Let’s do the time warp again!

This spooky season, cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show is returning to our very own Vic Theatre for five showings of kooky fun.

Running from October 25th all the way until Halloween night, it’s that time of year to put on your fishnets, wig, and little gold shorts for an interactive show you’re surely not to forget.

Whether you’re a Rocky Horror newbie or a seasoned veteran fan, the Vic Theatre promises to host a fantastic night featuring a lively host – to indoctrinate Rocky Horror virgins, of course – a costume contest, and all of the rice-tossing, newsprint-hoisting, interactive madness you can dream of.

In this highly acclaimed and famed screening, sweethearts Brad (Barry Bostwick) and Janet (Susan Sarandon), stuck with a flat tire during a storm, discover the eerie mansion of Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry), a transvestite scientist.

As their innocence is lost, Brad and Janet meet a houseful of wild characters, including a rocking biker (Meat Loaf) and a creepy butler (Richard O’Brien). Through elaborate dances and rock songs, Frank-N-Furter unveils his latest creation: a muscular man named “Rocky.”

Note: This is a 19+ event. Two pieces of ID are required for entry. No outside props are allowed, as bags will be checked but prop bags will be available at the door for $5 cash. Stock is limited, so get there early!
