Marin Summer Theater is thrilled to announce that THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW will be second mainstage show of the 2016 season. ROCKY HORROR has been one of the most popular requests by MST audiences and company members since MST was founded. The stage show that inspired the cult-favorite movie, ROCKY HORROR is "A musical that deals with mutating identity and time warps becomes one of the most mutated, time warped phenomena in show business." - The New York Times.
THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW joins A WHOLE NEW WORLD and completes the MST mainstage season. ROCKY HORROR will be performed at the Sir Francis Drake High School Little Theater. MST will start its 2016 season with auditions on March 20 and April 3, 2016. Audition appointments and details will be available in early January.
Any student actors, singers, musicians, dancers and technicians between the ages of 13 and 23 are eligible to audition or apply for MST.
Because of the sensitive nature of ROCKY HORROR's subject matter, only actors over 18 or those with specific parental permission may audition for ROCKY HORROR. “There are great parts for all of our company members in WHOLE NEW WORLD” says Nims, “the ROCKY HORROR cast will be limited to our older company members only. This is a show for mature performers and audiences.”
