By Rod Oden, Lee Street theatre
Get ready to get dressed up and do the Time Warp again this weekend at Lee Street theatre!
Lee Street will be offering two different Rocky Horror themed events, with the brand-new musical trolley tour experience, the Time Warp Trolley Tour, running Oct. 1-19 with nightly showings on the hour at eight, nine, ten, eleven and Midnight showings!
Then there is also the Monster’s Ball and Rocky Horror Picture Show movie showing on Oct. 19.
Both events ffeature casts performing the Rocky Horror Picture Show and Musical. Tickets are available at leestreet.org or 704-310-5507.
The brand-new Lee Street’s Time Warp Trolley Tour will feature a talented regional cast performing an adults only, 21 and up, adaptation of the Rocky Horror Picture Show in a shortened 35-minute trolley ride, that includes several stops and some of your favorite Rocky Horror tunes like “Damn It, Janet,” “Hot Patootie,” and, of course, “The Time Warp.”
The trolley runs five times nightly on the hour, starting at 8 p.m., all the way through an appropriately scheduled midnight trolley run. The Rowan County Tourism Development Authority also partnered with Lee Street to help make this production possible.
The Lee Street lobby will be open from 7 p.m. until midnight with bar and concessions, so you can be fully prepared to enjoy yourself.
The talented cast includes Cale Evans as the Voice of the Investigator, Nick Culp as Brad Majors, Lizzie Medlin as Janet Weiss, Kevin Leichman as Riff Raff, Chelsea Childers as Magenta, Jonathan Ford as Dr. Frank-N-Furter, Michael Meres as Rocky, and James Hickerson as Eddie.
The production is directed by Cale Evans with the music direction of Caroline Stephenson, choreography by Shannon Harris and production management by Raquel Oden.
On the closing night of the trolley tour, you also can enjoy getting dressed up, dance and party in your best Halloween costume and style at Lee Street’s Monster’s Ball and Rocky Horror Picture Show movie showing, sponsored by Salisbury PFLAG, Pride and Avita Pharmacy.
At 10 p.m., we will be showing the Rocky Horror Picture Show, with the Concord “That Type” Shadow Cast performing live in front, with all the campy-cult and innuendoes you can handle as they give all the callbacks and make this a truly audience participatory and interactive performance!
Please note: the Rocky Horror Picture show does include adult themes and language. So get dressed up, and get down to the Time Warp as you party with the shadow cast and trolley tour casts this weekend.
So don’t dream it, be it, this weekend at LSt’s Time Warp Trolley Tour and Monster’s Ball and Rocky Horror Picture Show viewings. Seating and tickets are limited.
