Prosser’s Princess Theatre will host its tenth annual showing of Rocky Horror Picture Show Saturday, October 27th. Attendees are welcome to dress for the event and compete for prizes.
As of Monday, October 29, 2018
PROSSER Trick-or-treat adult style is on the marquee at the Princess Theatre in Prosser for its 10th straight year this Halloween.
The theatre will host two showings of the original “Rocky Horror Picture Show” on Sat., Oct. 27, at 8 p.m. and midnight.
The cost is $15 per person for admission to the movie, props bag and pre-show parties at 7 and 10:30 p.m. in the theatre’s adjoining Green Room.
The 10th annual parties include music, Halloween treats, a trivia contest, a no-host bar with local wines and microbrews available by the glass and a “Time Warp Costume Contest” after 7:30 and 11:30 p.m.
Rocky Horror Picture Show is not a horror film; it is a rock-musical send-up of old science-fiction and horror films. Originally a stage play, the movie was released in 1975, and has become a cult classic interactive experience. More information about the movie is at www.rockyhorror.com.
As part of the RHPS experience, attendees are encouraged to dress up in costumes, yell back lines at the movie and act out the film with a bag of props.
Due to theatre policy, attendees will not be permitted to bring their own props into the theatre.
The $15 ticket includes a props kit with the script, bubbles, newspaper, toast and more.
First-time RHPS attendees are traditionally referred to as “virgins.” Training/refresher sessions for the interactive portions of the film will begin at 7:45 p.m. and 11:45 p.m.
Purchase tickets online at www.ThePrincessTheatre.net, or in person at Adventures Underground in Richland and at the Theatre’s office at 1230 Meade Ave..
