"The Rocky Horror Show" @ Buzzards Play Productions

When: Thu Oct 31st
12:00 am - 2:30 am

Where: Buzzards Play Productions, Inc. | 3065 Cranberry Highway | East Wareham

Buzzards Play Productions will open its inaugural theater season on Thursday, October 24, with “The Rocky Horror Show.” That seasonally appropriate offering will run at the Wareham theater through November 2.

Richard O’Brien’s “The Rocky Horror Show” enjoys nearly universal cult status, one that culminated with the 1975 classic movie “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” The Buzzards Play Production performance of the play welcomes the participation of the audience.


Theater personnel will have goodie bags with props on sale at the door for full audience participation.


Director Corinne Cameron said she is excited to be bringing such a cult classic to Buzzards Play and promises, “It will be a fully interactive ‘Rocky Horror’!” She encourages all interested audience members, however, to visit the website for more information on active participation, including tips on etiquette, dressing up, dancing, props and talk backs.
Rice, for example, should only be thrown during the wedding scene; the squirt guns that are under some chairs, used only during the rain storm. Similar rules are posted for the flashlights, gloves, confetti, playing cards and more.
Dancing is encouraged at one point in the show, but jumping up at others is not. The rules, including when and what not to shout, are at buzzardsplayproductions.com.
The Buzzards Play production of “The Rocky Horror Show” features local actors and music direction by Kevin Quill, who recently performed in a one-man show at the Cotuit Center for the Arts.


Buzzards Play Productions has been hosting shows at its theater for nearly three years, including original works, open mic nights with local talent, comedians, and theatrical productions such as “Godspell,” “Rent,” “The Glass Menagerie,” Shakespeare plays and more.


After “Rocky,” the company’s inaugural season will continue with “A Christmas Carol,” along with music concerts and entertainment through its “musical half,” 3065 LIVE! Touring bands from all over the country will be coming to entertain, along with local artists, who get their chance to entertain in open mic nights, acoustic nights and more.
