Curtain Call brings the cult classic “The Rocky Horror Show” to life on stage as it was meant to be seen!
Fresh off the heels of the critically acclaimed Next to Normal, Curtain Call is proud to present the wild and sexy The Rocky Horror Show. With over a dozen hit songs like The Time Warp, Sweet Transvestite, and Touch-A, Touch-A, Touch Me, this cult classic will breathe new life in a special one weekend only performance at the Jensen Beach Performing Arts Center on the campus of Jensen Beach High School. October 31st– November 2nd.
“The show’s appeal is to people of all ages- what was once seen as a taboo show is now a hit favorite, and we’re excited to be bringing such the live show to the Treasure Coast for the first time” says producer and director Jake Sanders, who also serves as Curtain Call’s Artistic Director. “Rocky is hilarious and filled with amazing rock songs- we know that audiences will love to experience whether they’re seeing it for the 30th time or the first.”
With choreography from Rafael Gomez and a professional cast from all over South Florida, a full live band and true rock show lighting, Rocky Horror has all of the pieces in place for success. “I’m thrilled to be working on Curtain Call’s biggest show yet- I know our cast and the creative team really see this as a huge passion project,” says Associate Director Chris Cromer, who’s also playing Riff Raff.
Cast members have been training non-stop to be in top physical condition for the show, with actor Joseph Machekso training for the role of Rocky for three months with CrossFit Fort Pierce and trainer Melissa Brodzinski. “We’ve really been working him nonstop since he was cast to have him be able to carry out this iconic role- fans of the movie will not be disappointed,” says Melissa, the co-owner of CrossFit Fort Pierce, who also stars as Magenta.
The cast is full of professional dancers and actors from across south Florida committed to performing this iconic show as it’s meant to be seen. Equity Actor Casey Honeycutt stars as the gender-bending Dr. Frankenfurter, with Nicole Kinzel as Janet, Samantha Streich as Columbia, Equity Actor Chris Cromer as Riff Raff, Melissa Brodzinski as Magenta, Mariano Garcia IV as Eddie, Heidi Condon as Dr. Scott, Michelle Lucey as the Usherette and a multitalented ensemble led by choreographer Rafael Gomez, Arianna White, Ross Parris, Sarah Kenny, and Quintin Smith. “Rocky Horror is one of the more off the wall musicals,” says actor Casey Honeycutt, who stars as the scientist, Dr. Frankenfurter. “The show’s unique, because people in the audience get to have as much fun as the people on stage.”
“While the movie has been screened before, this will be the first truly immersive Rocky Horror in the area. We’ve got prop bags prepared for our patrons, and we’re encouraging audience participation,” says Sanders. “We’re really looking forward to kicking off a stellar second season.”
The Rocky Horror Show runs October 31st through November 2nd at The Jensen Beach Performing Arts Center on the campus of Jensen Beach High School with performances Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8PM at 2875 NW Goldenrod Road, Jensen Beach- 34957.
