The newly engaged Brad and Janet find themselves stranded after their car breaks down during a
heavy downpour. With few options, they make their way to the “castle” of Dr. Frank-N-Furter
along with his, let’s just say, eccentric entourage. The strait-laced Brad and Janet have no idea
what this night has in store for them, and this night is particularly special because Dr. Frank is
unveiling his newest creation: Rocky. Innocence is lost as Brad and Janet give in to the seductive
influence of their transvestite host. Nothing will be the same after this fateful night, and the same
goes for the audience as they are transported into the life of Dr. Frank-N-Furter.
The Rocky Horror Show is the original production on which The Rocky Horror Picture Show is
based. The original production was produced in London in June of 1973, the movie was created
in 1975. The show provides plenty of audience partici … pation.

Goody bags can be purchased at the door. For the safety of the actors and other audience
members, food props (hot dogs, toast, and rice, etc.), water pistols, and open flames are NOT
permitted. You CAN, however, say the relevant audience participation lines to the cast.
Examples are: When a character says “Brad Majors” on stage, you can yell “asshole;” when a
character says “Janet Weiss” you yell “slut.” Other rules and guidelines will be gone over prior
to each performance.

Goody bags are $5 each, they include a Johnson City Community Theatre flashlight, noisemaker,
newspaper, toilet paper, party hat, playing cards, and confetti. All this will be handed to you in a
Johnson City Community Theatre bag.

Due to JCCT being one of the only Thrust stage spaces in the state of Tennessee we have the
unique ability to do something fun. In 2019, we are offering 2 seats for every performance that
are on stage. The cast will move you around and make you become part of the action of the
show. Giving you the best and most interactive seat of the show. These seats come with your
goody bag and special VIP Parking.

Johnson City Community Theatre is Tennessee’s longest continuously running theater company.
JCCT is a member-run 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that derives its support primarily from
performance proceeds, charitable donations, and the community.
