Lyric Theatre's "The Rocky Horror Show" Encourages Audience Participation
By Tourism Industry Partner
Lyric Theatre's 2010 production of Richard O'Brien's The Rocky Horror Show is a brand new musical with a fresh cast and original elements that Rocky Horror fans have never seen before. This year we are offering a new, fun attraction, 'The Rocky Ride', as well as providing goody bags that you can purchase at the door and allowing audience participation to make Rocky Horror fans’ experience better.
From October 14-30, during each performance, four lucky Rocky Horror fans will get the chance to join the cast including Dr. Frank'n'Furter, Columbia, Rocky, Magenta, Janet, Brad and Riff Raff on stage at the Plaza Theatre for “The Rocky Ride”. To get the chance to participate in “The Rocky Ride”, buy your tickets online or call (405) 524-9312, then sign up in the Plaza lobby before each ticketed performance.
Props or any other items from home are not allowed in the theatre so Lyric Theatre's Associate Board put together goody bags for the audience to participate in the show. These goody bags will be sold for $5 each in the Plaza Theatre Lobby before each performance night. The goody bags contain items that make the fans’ Rocky Horror experience fun, with items that are safe for our actors. Items include newspapers, flashlights, rubber gloves, toilet paper, party hats, noise makers, bells, cards and boas.
Lyric Theatre highly encourages audience participation. Dressing up head-to-toe like your favorite Rocky Horror character, just wrapping a boa around your neck or showing up as you are, we want audience members to experience Rocky Horror the way it has been celebrated for years. Rocky Horror wardrobe ideas include corsets, fishnets, 4-inch (or higher) high heels, red lipstick and so much more. For more information about how to get involved in the Rocky Horror experience, go to www.lyrictheatreokc.com/experience-rocky.
Performances are Tuesday through Thursday at 7:30 pm, Friday at 8:00 pm and Saturday at 8:00 pm and midnight. Tickets are $40 each. For more information or to purchase tickets call (405) 524-9312 or go to www.lyrictheatreokc.com.
