Let's do the Time Warp . . . AGAIN!

December 03, 2010
In its continued efforts to explore new avenues of audiences and income, Theatre Bristol will bring back the ever-popular Richard O’Brien’s The Rocky Horror Show as a special fund-raising event this Christmas holiday season. That sweet transvestite and his motley crew return to the Theatre Bristol stage to remind you “Don’t dream it, be it.” Complete with sass from the audience, avalanches of cards, confetti and an array of other audience participation props, this deliberately kitschy rock 'n' roll sci-fi gothic musical is more fun than ever. Don’t miss it! Audience members are encouraged to dress up! Goody bags will be for sale and specific lists of do’s and don’ts will be posted to the website.
