Experience the cult classic film The Rocky Horror Picture Show in a unique way when live, costumed casts perform as the movie plays in the background. Audience participation and rowdiness is encouraged at these “shadowcast” performances. Sing along to musical favorites, such as “Time Warp” and “I’m Going Home.” Times and prices vary for performances.

Here’s a brief synopsis of Rocky Horror for any virgins—that’s what you’re called if you’ve never experienced a shadowcast show—who may not be familiar with the 1975 musical horror comedy film:

When newlyweds Brad and Janet get a flat tire, they wind up at the mansion of the self-proclaimed “Sweet Transvestite from Transsexual Transylvania” Dr. Frank N. Furter, where they meet a ton of wild characters. Tim Curry, Barry Bostwick, Meat Loaf, Richard O’Brien and New Jersey’s Susan Sarandon star in the film.
