The Rocky Horror Picture Show
10 p.m. Monday
101 E. Main, Norman
Maybe it means that magical time of year where you can put on lipstick, regardless of gender and social constraints. It’s your chance to pull out those fishnet thigh-highs (because, let’s face it, there’s nowhere else to wear those without sending the wrong message).
Tighten up your bustier. Babies, “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” is coming to town.
Dr. Frank-N-Furter and his fascination with blond, ripped-abs men is back. The cross-dresser in you has waited all year for your dose of “Rocky,” so why deprive it?
Starring Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick, Tim Curry and Meat Loaf, the cult rock musical from 1975 comes to the Sooner Theater on Monday for its ninth year. The 10 p.m. Halloween viewing will feature an interesting aspect in that a live cast to accompany the film’s screening will be handpicked from the audience, so those wishing to fulfill that secret fantasy to be Riff Raff or Janet (dammit) better come with their A-game.
Participants will be chosen just before the show based upon their costumes. Tom Farris, event producer, said that there is a three-year reining champion for the groupie character of Columbia, so get creative, as audience members vote on who they want to see perform in front of the unspooling film.
He said that the venue resembles a castle and “makes you feel like you’re in the movie.”
“Doing the ‘Time Warp’ with 650 people isn’t something you can get at home,” Farris said. “Plus, you get to make a mess and leave it.”Prop bags will be sold for $5, containing all the items needed for audience participation during key moments. Tickets can be purchased in advance at Pfenning Law Offices, 108 E. Main in Norman, or by calling 818-7238.
“Guarantee you won’t be prepared,” Farris said. “Every year is different.”
