Hey everyone! I'm just curious as to whether or not there are any Pro or Amateur productions of The Rocky Horror Picture Show scheduled for this Halloween season?

Back in Hamilton, there was an old-school screening at the Tivoli where attendees would dress up as their favourite characters, throw rice, light lighters, etc... you know, the traditional way of seeing RHPS.

A couple years back, I took my Mom to a full-cast musical production at the Sony Centre on Front St. That was also just before Halloween.

I would love to take in an authentic screening, or better yet, production of the show this month so if ANYone can help me out (even if it's just community productions), PLEASE let me know!

Thanks everyone, and happy haunting! .. or Crossdressing or whatever it is you do on Halloween ;)

I saw the movie Rocky Horror more times than I'll admit to here back in the 70's & early 80's at the Roxy out on the Danforth, such fun memories there. The movie with audience participation will be playing over Halloween weekend at the Bloor Cinema, Bloor just east of Bathurst. I've never seen it there but I hear that they do a good job with the participation & stage show during the film. I think they normally do a late show on Friday or Saturday nights once a month there. I haven't seen anything regarding a live stage version anywhere in the city.

Is that the movie screening with performers also on stage, or an actual stage production of the musical?

The show is the live stage musical. We pay homage to the film while bring the original 1973 stage version to life. just like the movie, we encourage the callbacks. It's almost better with the live show because you'll have the chance to yell at the actors live on the stage!
