Just a Sweet Transvest-Nite

The Rocky Horror Show

Feeling down? Perhaps a visit to the doctor is in order—with Dr. Fran-N-Furter that is! The perfect way to celebrate Halloween (it's just a jump to the left) is to get a ticket to Musical Theatre Southwest's production of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the film and seeing a local production will make the musical come to life. With tickets only $20-22, this show is a local gem.
