The Rocky Horror Show

September 30, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - October 29, 2022 @ 8:00 pm

The Rocky Horror Show opens Friday, September 30th at 8:00pm and runs through Saturday, October 29th. For show times and dates, please go the Trustus website.

Let’s do the Time Warp again. The Rocky Horror Show returns to the Thigpen Main Stage just in time for Halloween. Running September 30th through October 29th, this spooky, sensual fan-favorite is directed and choreographed by Trustus Company member Terrance Henderson and musically directed by Company Emeritus Chris Cockrell with company member Walter Graham returning to the role of Frank’N’Furter. Rocky Horror marks the seventh time the show has been produced by Trustus, 30 years after the original production. The show is sponsored by Top Hat Sweepers, Z Realty, and Marketing Performance.

Stuck with a flat tire during a storm, newly engaged love birds Brad and Janet find themselves at the eerie mansion of Dr. Frank’N’Furter. What follows is a “strange journey” full of wild characters, huge musical numbers, and fan-favorite moments that are sure to please. This out-of-this-world classic will leave audiences dancing, laughing, and shivering with antici…pation. The Rocky Horror Show inspired the 1974 film of the same name. With book, music and lyrics by Richard O’Brien, The Rocky Horror Show is an interactive rock musical. Audiences are encouraged to dress in costume and yell “callouts” back at the cast throughout the show. Trustus will also be selling participation kits that include playing cards, newspapers, toilet paper, and more. The audience is welcome to use their props during specific moments in the show, making it a communal experience for cast and patrons alike. (Trustus does not allow outside props into the theatre.)

 Trustus is proud to partner with Twisted Spur Brewing for a dinner package that includes a three course dinner and a ticket to Rocky Horror. On select nights in October, enjoy a fixed menu with lots of delicious options before your performance of Rocky Horror. The package is $95 per person, or $180 per couple and includes dishes like Oysters Rockefeller, shrimp and grits, and tiramisu. Tickets can be booked through the Trustus website. Questions can be directed to Twisted Spur at (803) 764-0203.

 Trustus will also host a closing night Halloween party. Partake in spooky snacks catered by Twisted Spur, free drinks, door prizes, and a costume contest before the show, then enjoy the closing night performance of The Rocky Horror Show with your participation bag included. Costumes are highly encouraged and guests are invited to continue the party after the show. More info to come. Tickets are very limited and can be purchased through the Trustus website.
