WILD AND UNTAMED: Bay Street Theatre is back with ‘The Rocky Horror Show Live’

Updated October 18, 2022 at 10:02 p.m.

It is that time of year again and Dr. Frank N Furter and the Transylvanians are back at the Bay Street Theatre, and they are ready to the ‘Time Wrap’ again! “The Rocky Horror Show Live” is back and this year will mark their 12th annual production of Richard O’Brien’s show.

Ready to ‘Rose Tint Your World’ the cast is directed by Bay Street Theatre’s Executive Director Travis Coles, with musical direction by Brandon Kaufman, and choreography by Lauren Holmen. They are thrilled to be bringing to life once again for returning and new audience members.

“After having to come through covid and doing the show last year it really makes you some things that are consistent,” said Coles.

A lot of familiar names from Bay Street Theatre will be taking the stage in this year’s production but a few fresh faces unleashing their inner wild and untamed things for the first time.

“We always get a new cast every year. We have some veterans this year, some newbies as well, some freshmen from SCAD. It’s never the same show,” said Coles.

There are a few surprises in store for this year’s production, so the cast is being kept under wraps. You’ll have to join them in Frank’s lab to see what they’ve been cooking up that brings something new to the show this time around for Bay Street Theatre.

“We had to make some changes with this adjustment, but it wasn’t a big deal. It will be a surprise for those seeing the show though,” said Coles.

This is not Coles first time directing this show, but this production faced a couple of challenges for the rehearsal process because much of the cast was in other shows and delayed some days because of Hurricane Ian.

“It’s been a quick rehearsal process with a lot of music and choreography, but it helps having veterans on the cast,” said Coles.

Performances will be on Oct. 21-23 and 28-31. Show start times are 7:30pm except for Saturdays, which start at 5:30 p.m. On Monday, Oct. 31 there will be a show at 8 p.m.  and a bonus show at midnight.

Props (rice, hotdogs, squirt guns, etc.) are strictly prohibited. However, audience members are encouraged to dress up and participate for the shows.

“Every year the fan base grows more and more and it’s kind of a phenomenon where it was always a cult classic but especially for our area with this show,” said Coles.

Tickets go fast each year for this cult classic, so getting your tickets in advance is encouraged. Tickets are available at clubone-online.com
