Clarksville, TN – Dig out your fishnet stockings and dust off your stilettos! That sweet transvestite and his motley crew are back for the tenth year in an annual tradition on the corner of Franklin Street and First Street at the Roxy Regional Theatre in Historic Downtown Clarksville.
Richard O’Brien’s cult classic “The Rocky Horror Show” returns to the Roxy Regional Theatre on Thursday, October 13th, at 7:00pm.
The night out is destined to be one they will never forget, as a thunderstorm and a flat tire lead them to the castle of Dr. Frank ‘N’ Furter, an alien, transvestite scientist with a manic genius and insatiable libido, played by a stiletto and fishnet stocking-clad Sam Alan Johnson.
When Brad, Janet and Frank ‘N’ Furter’s cohorts are swept up into the scientist’s latest experiment, the night’s misadventures will cause Brad and Janet to question themselves, each other, love and lust. A loving homage to the cult-classic, sci-fi film and horror genres with an irresistible rock ‘n’ roll score, this is a hilarious, wild ride that Clarksville will not soon forget.
Directed and choreographed by Emily Ruck with music direction by Tyler Saunders, “The Rocky Horror Show” also features Brooke Bennish as Riff Raff, Victoria Preisman as Magenta, Faith Konty as Columbia, Dave Stishan as Eddie and Dr. Scott, Brett Vance as Rocky, and David Graham as the Narrator. Prepare to dance the “Time Warp” like never before to live music provided by Tyler Saunders on piano, Thad Wallus on guitar, Caleb Barlow on bass and Bernard Lott on drums.

Bags of props will be available for $5.00 in the lobby one hour prior to performances. Outside props will not be permitted, as they may damage the theatre or injure actors and/or audience members.
