On Halloween, come out to the Bardo Arts Center to watch The Rocky Horror Picture Show on the big screen at 7:30 p.m. — and while you’re at it, experience the special WCU student shadow cast that will be bring the film to life before your eyes.

The film experience will be partially live with lip-syncing performers and the 1975 cult classic will be playing in the background.

The screening at the arts center will encourage audience participation and will provide goody bags for purchase at the door — not to mention seeing the on-screen characters come to life.

The on-stage WCU student shadow cast mirrors the on-screen performance, lip-syncs with the songs, and gives the audience actors to interact with, a much-desired part of any Rocky Horror experience.

“The Rocky Horror Picture Show” is probably the oddest, most off-the-wall cult film ever made; a kinky rock’n’roll science fiction horror satire that is everybody’s favorite Halloween show.

A young couple stumbles into a castle inhabited by weirdos from the planet Transylvania including Dr. Frank N. Furter (played by Jowers) a transvestite Frankenstein in rhinestone heels.

The student shadow cast is made up of students from all across campus.

The screening and shadow cast production are on Halloween Night, October 31, at 7:30 p.m. on the big screen in the Bardo Arts Center Performance Hall.

Tickets are $5 for students, $10 for WCU faculty/staff and seniors 65+, and $15 for the general public. Please note that all seating is general admission. To purchase tickets or for more details, please visit arts.wcu.edu/rocky.

Arrive early in your best Halloween or Rocky Horror costume and enter to win a $25 gift card and BAC swag bag; the winner is announced at the end of the show.
