Among the vast amount of homecoming activities this week, two screenings of The “Rocky Horror Picture Show” will be presented at the Backdoor Playhouse. WTTU, Tech Players and Tech Activities Board present the screening beginning tonight and Friday at 10:30 p.m. The screenings are open to the public but not recommended for people under 17 years of age.
“If you have an open mind, it’s the most fun you can have watching and participating with a movie,” John Corley, junior geology major, said. “The most fun came from watching everyone dance around on stage dressed in ridiculous clothing and hearing all of their off-the-wall comments.”
Tickets to the event are free and can be retrieved at the Information Desk in the lobby of the RUC. An estimated 200 tickets are available for each screening, so acquiring tickets early is encouraged.
In keeping with “Rocky Horror” tradition, audience members are encouraged to dress as their favorite character. Also, prop bags will be available to purchase before the film begins. The prop bags cost $1 and will contain many items commonly thrown during the cult classic.
