Southern State Community College Theatre will hold auditions for its summer production of Richard O’Brien’s “The Rocky Horror Show.”
Open to community members and students, auditions will be held 6:30 p.m. Friday, May 12, in the Edward K. Daniels Auditorium on Southern State Community College’s Central Campus, 100 Hobart Drive, Hillsboro. Callbacks, if necessary, will be held 6:30 p.m. Saturday, May 13.
One fateful night, Brad Majors and his fiancée, Janet Weiss—a wholesome, well-behaved, utterly normal young couple in love—innocently set out to visit an old professor. Unfortunately for them, this night out is destined to be one they will never forget. A thunderstorm and a flat-tire force them to seek help at the castle of Dr. Frank ’N’ Furter, an alien, transvestite scientist with a manic genius and insatiable libido. Brad, Janet, and Frank’ N’ Furter’s cohorts are swept up into the scientist’s latest experiment. The night’s misadventures will cause Brad and Janet to question everything they’ve known about themselves, each other, love, and lust. A loving homage to the classic B sci-fi film and horror genres with an irresistible rock n’ roll score, “The Rocky Horror Show” is a hilarious, wild ride that no audience will soon forget.
Those interested in auditioning should prepare and memorize a comedic one- to two-minute monologue, as well as a short song, from Broadway, rock and roll, or “Rocky Horror.” For certain roles (please visit the web for more info) auditioners are asked to wear form-fitting clothing.
