Oscar Alejandro of Dearborn will star as Dr. Frank N. Furter in “The Rocky Horror Show” at Clutch Cargo’s in Pontiac. The three weekend show continues its run Oct. 22 to 24 and 29 to 31.
Audience participation is encouraged with this cult classic: Sing, cross dress in character and do the Time Warp.
General admission is $20, with special group pricing. The venue features two bars which remain open for service during the show. Thursday shows are for those 18 and over, while the Friday and Saturday shows are for age 21 and over.
When straight arrows Brad and Janet have car trouble and seek help down the road, they have no idea they are headed for the place where Dr. Frank N. Furter is conducting strange experiments. The play is part rock musical, part science fiction spoof and irreverent seduction.
Dan Rose of Berkley directs the show, with assistant direction by Deborah Landis-Sigler of Clawson. In addition to Alejandro, the cast includes Adam Landis of Clawson, Sara Winter of Eastpointe, Jason Landis of Clawson, Vanessa Sawson of Ferndale, Mary Ann Redhage of Riley, Jon Ellison of Royal Oak, Mark Hamell of Lathrup Village, Jeff Richardson of Grosse Point Woods, Lloyd Ziel of Las Vegas, Amy Schell of Royal Oak, Lauren Wilson of Oak Park, Nick Presto of Royal Oak and Chris Gerlach of Ferndale.
Landis-Sigler and Rose have more than 40 years of combined theatrical experience. “The Rocky Horror Show” is their sixth production working together.
Tickets are available online at www.showsatfrontrow.com or through TicketMaster outlets.
