The Rocky Horror Picture Show is an “erotic nightmare beyond any measure.” Relive Richard O’Brien’s sinfully twisted salute to horror, sci-fi, B-movies and rock music–a “sensual daydream to treasure forever”–starring Tim Curry (in his iconic performance), Barry Bostwick, and Oscar winner Susan Sarandon. Do the “Time Warp” and sing “Hot Patootie” with live Madison shadow cast Velvet Darkness–one night only at Memorial Union’s Shannon Hall!

Audience participation is more than welcome, and costumes are encouraged. However, for the sake of the cast and crew the following items will NOT be allowed in the theater: rice, toast, hot dogs, squirt guns, lighters or open flames, blown noisemakers, food/drink of any kind, or glitter/small metallic confetti. Items that are welcome are playing cards, toilet paper, party hats, spinning noisemakers, newspapers, and flashlights.  

Doors open at 9:15pm, costume contest at 9:30pm with preshow festivities and the film screening to follow.  Prop bags will be available for purchase.   


This event is intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff and Union members & guests.
