  • What to Expect

    A little audience participation, a lot of silliness, and a ton of fun! The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a moviegoing experience unlike any other. Our shadowcast performers will expertly act out the film in front of the screen (with some added frivolity) while you, the audience, throw things and yell expletives! PLUS Arrive early for a fun video dance party!

    What to Bring

    Only your beautiful self! And a little cash. The Cosmic Light Cabaret sells prop bags at the show with everything you'll need to participate. From rice to newspaper to toilet paper-- we've got you covered! Prop bag sales are how we afford to continue bringing this show to you, so please support the cast and buy a prop bag!

    What to Wear

    Wear what makes you feel confident and comfortable! Wanna lace up into a rhinestoned corset and fishnets as Frank n Furter? Go for it! Feel like breaking out your favorite old Halloween costume? Sounds good! The Rocky Horror Picture Show is the perfect place to dress up in your sexy best, but a t-shirt & jeans is also perfectly fine. We're adults running around a movie theater in our underwear -- we're in no place to judge what other people wear to our show. We do sometimes hold costume contests though, so keep an eye on our social media to see when the best time is to wear a particular costume. You might even win a prize!

    What the Fuck?

    The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a rated-R movie, so attendees should be 17 years of age (or come with a guardian). While there is a lot of raunchy humor in our show, sex, nudity, drugs, and alcohol are NOT allowed. This is a safe event, even if it is a bit wild.

  • Devirginization

    Not as scary as your middle school health teacher made it sound

    Losing your Rocky Horror virginity

    It doesn't hurt (unless you're into that)

    Those who have never seen Rocky Horror in a theater with a shadowcast before are known as "Virgins" and one of the most exciting parts of any Rocky Horror performance is the Devirginization ceremony! This brief ritual is a fun, harmless way to commemorate your first time getting the full Rocky Horror experience. You only have to go through it once, and once you have, you can bring your unsuspecting friends to the show next week and watch them experience it too! It's the gift that keeps on giving.
