Rocky Horror Picture Show with Live Shadow Cast

This October, come out and celebrate the 45th anniversary of the Rocky Horror Picture Show! The Nevada Theatre Film Series, Nevada City Live and Untamed Productions present this cult classic film complete with shadow cast by some of Nevada County’s favorite performers and dancers live on stage at the Nevada Theatre. The show goes on four times in three nights in downtown Nevada City: Friday, Oct. 18 at 8:00pm, Saturday, October 19 at 7:30pm and 10:30pm and Sunday, October 20 at 7:00pm.

As Brad (Barry Bostwick) and Janet (Susan Sarandon) come upon the creepy castle of flamboyant transvestite scientist Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry) on the big screen, their counterparts on stage will act it all out for you in living flesh.  The show features tongue-in-cheek comedy and Broadway style song and dance, with plenty of audience participation.  Audiences are invited to come as you are or dressed up and ready to do the Time Warp all over again!
