Downtown Performing Arts Center performs "The Rocky Horror Show"
The Lambertville, N.J., Downtown Performing Arts Center’s annual production of “The Rocky Horror Show” takes place at the New Hope Arts Center, 2 Stockton Ave., New Hope, at 9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25 and 9 p.m. and midnight (11:59 p.m) Saturday, Oct. 26.
Tickets are $20 online and $22 at the door. Advance purchases are suggested.
On a dark and stormy night, Brad Majors and Janet Weiss find themselves lost and with a flat tire. Their only choice for help is to knock on the door of a nearby castle where they find Dr. Frank N. Furter and a group of strange characters holding their annual Transylvanian convention.
The ensemble includes his servants Riff Raff and Magenta and a groupie named Columbia. The highlight of the evening is the introduction of Frank’s ultimate creation, the muscular, Rocky, who seems to be the object of everyone’s affection. The question: Will Brad and Janet be able to escape the clutches of Dr. Frank or will they become his play things like the rest of his zany crew?
Louis Palena will again play Dr. Frank N. Furter and Jill Palena will repeat her role of Janet Weiss. Lambertville’s husband and wife acting team, David and Jenny Whiteman, take on the roles of Dr. Scott and Eddie, while New Hope resident Lewis Matheney returns as Rocky.
The production is an audience participation show with audience members encouraged to dress up as their favorite characters and respond to the performance as it happens.
