The camaraderie between these actors is visible with their encouraging cheers and laughter, as they practice lines and wait for rehearsal to begin.

Kalamazoo College’s theater cast and crew has decided to produce The Rocky Horror Show this Fall. The group rehearses Sunday through Thursday from 6:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

In 1973, Richard O’Brien’s play The Rocky Horror Picture Show premiered for the first time in London at the Royal Court Theatre. This science fiction theatrical production is a play about a young couple who stumbles upon an eerie castle, where a crazy scientist lives. This musical overcomes stereotypical gender roles, featuring men in heels and lingerie.

Cody Colvin K’14, who plays the character Eddie, a rock n’ roll motorcyclist, said, “This is the best experience that I’ve had so far.  Everyone is on the same wavelength, and there is a phenomenal synergy.”

The Rocky Horror Show will premiere on Nov. 3 at 7:30 p.m. in the Nelda K. Balch Theatre.  The play will also hold showings on Nov. 4, 5 and 6.

Tickets are free for Kalamazoo College students as long as they present their ID. The admissions fee is $5 for students without their ID, $15 for adults, and $10 for senior citizens aged 65 and older.

Monica Johnson K’13, the Assistant Director, said they are looking forward to having some fun by “encouraging audience participation.”

With this in mind, please join Kalamazoo College’s cast and crew as they entertain us with their performances during 8th week.
