10/11/2012 - Rocky Horror Show Returns to Anchorage, AK

THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW RETURNS TO MAD MYRNA’S FOR A FALL RUN


Mad Myrna’s Productions is proud to announce that The Rocky Horror Show is back! Following in the theaters style of producing high energy, camp musicals, such as Saucy Jack and the Space Vixens, Little Shop of Horrors and more, Mad Myrna’s annual production of The Rocky Horror Show will open for a 21 show run from October 19th-November 17th.


Producer RJ Haywood and Director Cameron Morrison first teamed up on the summer 2012 production  of Saucy Jack and the Space Vixens. Following in the success and critical acclaim of that show, Executive Producer Jeff Wood (aka Mad Myrna) asked them to lead this years production of The Rocky Horror Show.


For several years the production of The Rocky Horror Show has taken on several themes. From circus, to Hollywood glamour, 80’s icons, the show has been reimagined over and over to great success. “Our theme this year is to take it all back to the beginning and pay homage to the movie that started it all. To really honor the amazing work of Richard O’Brien” RJ Haywood states.


The Rocky Horror Show first began as a stage musical in the early 70’s, with a USA premiere at the Roxy Theatre in L.A. in 1974. The Broadway opening occurred in March of 1975 at the Belasco Theatre. It was later made into a movie, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, widely considered a flop.


Cameron Morrison has brought on some of the past productions stars such as Regina MacDonald, Dean Williams, and Shawna Rayn Borgen. He also has brought on some very new talent in the lead roles. These fresh faces with fantastic voices are sure to delight the crowd with their take on the roles, such as Lisa Hartlieb as Janet Weiss, and Joey Murphy as Frank N Furter. With a brand new choreographer, and a new musical director this will not be The Rocky Horror Show that you are used to but will have the same energy, creativity and fun that audiences have come to expect.


Get your tickets now to make sure that you can come see this fun, disrespectful, and completely inappropriate masterpiece. Show times will be Thursday and Friday nights at 7pm, and Saturday nights at 7pm and 10pm. There will be a special Halloween show at 7pm on October 31st. Tickets are available at www.centertix.net . $23 for Thursday Shows, $28 for Friday and Saturday nights.


On October18th the final dress rehearsal will be open to the public as a “Pay what you can” preview show. Suggested donation of $10. All donations received from this show will benefit the Denali Arts Council in Talkeetna.
