An All-American couple, Brad Majors (Barry Bostwick) and fiance Janet Weiss (Susan Sarandon), decide to visit their old professor. Unfortunately, their car breaks down just outside an old Castle, and they are forced to stay the night. Inside the house Brad and Janet find a world of mad science, strange characters filled with subliminal sexuality.
The film itself is filled with great tunes and a slightly loopy plot. So it's just like your common-or-garden musical in that way. The film really takes off in its subversion of sexual mores as Brad and Janet break free by spending time with Dr. Frank N Furter, the Master of the castle, freeing them from their normality.
Richard O'Brien created THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW for the London stage, and in addition to writing duties also shows up as butler Riff Raff. But the show belongs to Tim Curry as cross-dressing scientist Frank N Furter.
you might have seen it so many times that you're tired of singing along, or have never seen it before, but either way, you can gain new thrills by seeing it at the cinema and entering the world of audience participation. Dress up and costume contests! Goodie bags of fun props! Fun Preshow Games! Call backs you can shout at the screen and enter conversations with the characters in the film! Many claim that audience participation is the essence of the Rocky Horror experience, and the film itself merely an excuse for this mayhem.
Will it appeal to everyone? Certainly not. But for those willing to experiment with something a little bit different, a little bit outr, THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW has a lot to offer.
Salem Rocky Horror Picture brings a determined group of volunteers together all year long in preparation to put on a great show in Salem, Oregon. A cast and crew ranging from 10 to 20 people, from 5+years of acting and modeling to beginners, all with the opportunities giving by an open flexible schedule, no acting required and an ability to be yourself in a theater setting.
Our motivations are to bring Salem together through entertainment, and provide a place, time and theme to have fun, laugh and support our community of subcultures that live outside the box. Our goal is to grow and continue to bring an annual show every October. Through local support and volunteers we encourage connections and independent theater groups, in hope that Salem will continue to grow creatively
