"Rocky Horror" to invade Olivet College March 30 through April 1
Mar 05, 2012

The Olivet College Performing Arts Department and Music Program will present Richard OBrien’s “Rocky Horror Show” Friday and Saturday, March 30-31 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, April 1 at 3 p.m. in the Oaks Theatre in downtown Olivet. All performances are free and open to the public.

The production, which was later made into the cult classic movie, “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” follows newly engaged couple Brad and Janet as they travel through a rainstorm to visit their former science tutor, Dr. Everett Scott. During their journey, their car gets a flat tire. As they approach an old castle in search of a telephone, little do they know that the owner, who happens to be a transvestite scientist, his servants and a motley crew of characters await them!

The cast includes: Jeremy Adams, of Battle Creek (Frank); Devin Craw, a freshman from Marshall (Eddie and Dr. Scott); Cameron Eldridge, a sophomore from Nashville (Riff Raff); Timothy Gingerich, a freshman from Lowell (Rocky); Mark Gouba, a senior from Novi (Brad Majors); Kayla Green, of Mason (Janet Weiss); Lynette King, a freshman from Lake Odessa (Columbia); and Marla Strickler, of Battle Creek (Magenta). Also included in the show are: Arthur Chupp, a senior from Bellevue; Sierra Clark, a junior from Interlochen; Cortni Howard, a freshman from Delton; Josh Kofflin, a sophomore from Milan; Britney Page, a senior from Olivet; and Amy Zesiger, a senior from Galesburg. Tricia Hilton, of Marshall, serves as choreographer for the show, which is directed by Timothy Flynn, Ph.D., Performing Arts Department chair and associate professor of music.

This production contains adult language and themes, and is not appropriate for all audiences. While the audience is encouraged to come dressed as their favorite character, this show is not interactive out of respect for the actors and venue. For more information, call (269) 749-7660.
