Synopsis "The Rocky Horror Show": An outrageous musical comedy featuring a Transylvanian transvestite, a cryogenically preserved zombie motorbiker and Frankensteins monster in Greek god form. This sexual parody of horror and science fiction films premiered onstage in London in 1973, becoming the popular cult classic film The Rocky Horror Picture Show in 1975.
While we are not trying to re-create the movie, and may go in different directions, this play ultimately deals with overt sexuality. Everyone who auditions needs to be comfortable with this. Performers of all ethnic and racial backgrounds are encouraged to attend.
Magenta: Mezzo (Top C/D) Rock belter, but looking for a contrast between Magenta and Columbia. Think Joan Jett or Janis Joplin, Ann Wilson or Grace Slick. For these roles any good belting pop/rock song would work (NO Mariah or American Idol type showoff songs this is ROCK). Maid type on the kinky side. Riff Raffs sister. Age range 20-30s.
