Though this week of the year—the filling in our Christmas and New Year’s cookie sandwich—is brimming with social engagements, there’s little in the way of public performances.

The Rocky Horror Show
By Sarah Bonneau
Feeling down? Perhaps a visit to the doctor is in order—with Dr. Fran-N-Furter that is!

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. So put your hands on your hips and do the pelvic thrust over to the MTS box office or www.musicaltheatresw.com.
