All the fun and quirkiness of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" returns to the Averitt Center this weekend for three shows – Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. – filled with lipstick, fishnets and riotous humor.
A live musical performance, the annual Halloween tradition has attracted fans from around the region for many years.
It is a campy, musical spoof on the haunted-castle horror movie, encompassing a '70s glam-rock world with characters that are more than offbeat. 

In this cult classic, sweethearts Brad and Janet, stuck with a flat tire during a storm, discover the eerie mansion of Dr. Frank-N-Furter, a transvestite scientist. As their innocence is lost, Brad and Janet meet a houseful of wild characters, including a rocking biker, creepy butler, and the latest creation: a muscular man named “Rocky.”

Audience members are invited to come in their favorite costume and join the fun.

Performances of Rocky Horror are expected to be boisterous. Traditions include "callbacks" - phrases the audience is encouraged to shout in response to the dialogue - and the Time Warp dance.
In Rocky Horror, audience interaction is encouraged and expected. In fact, it just wouldn't be Rocky Horror without it. 

To purchase tickets, please visit www.averittcenterforthearts.org or call (912) 212-2827 during Box Office hours, Tuesday-Friday, from noon to 5:30 p.m. Tickets are $20. While the show is intended for mature audiences, children will be admitted with an adult.
