The Rocky Horror Show
October 25th – November 4th
Halloween is just around the corner, and who better to celebrate with than the denizens of Dr. Frank N. Furter’s home-sweet-castle in Richard O’Brien’s beloved cult classic, The Rocky Horror Show. And Entr’Acte Theatrix is inviting audiences to come do the Time Warp again… when they present ‘Rocky’ at the Crest Theatre at the Delray Center for the Arts at Old School Square from October 25th through November 4th.
The Rocky Horror Show is an outrageous assemblage of the most stereotypical science fiction movies, Marvel comics, Frankie Avalon/Annette Funicello outings and rock ‘n’ roll of every vintage. The play (upon which the classic film The Rocky Horror Picture Show is based) has grown from an experimental production originally produced in a small London theatre in June 1973, to a cult phenomenon with fans world-wide.
Rocky is also the quintessential audience participation show, and Entr’Acte will have what have come to be known as ‘survival kits’ available for purchase for those who want them.
Rocky ‘virgins’ and Rocky veterans alike will delight in Entr’Acte’s production, which features a talented young cast led by well known South Florida director Kevin Black, who is thrilled to be involved with the show: “As a teenager, I was completely obsessed with Rocky Horror,” he says. “And I’m so excited to finally get the chance to direct the stage version with this amazing cast. We’ve decided to put a fresh new twist on this cult classic, propelling this outrageous and campy piece into the next millennium.”
Among the cast are:
Ross Parris (Dr. Frank N. Furter) was most recently seen as James in Entr’Acte’s 2012 summer production of Jesus Christ Superstar. His previous theater credits include Oklahoma!, Guys and Dolls, and Annie at the Lakeworth Playhouse, and The Pajama Game with the Island Players in Palm Beach.
Elaine Flores (Janet) is a recent graduate in Musical Theater from the New World School of the Arts in Miami, and a Miami native. She has played Wendla in Spring Awakening (The Colony Theatre), Janet in the Drowsy Chaperone (Louise O. Gerrits Theatre), and Marcy Park in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee (New World School of the Arts Studio Theatre). Elaine has also studied at the American Theatre Wing in NYC and appeared in the Major Motion Picture Rock of Ages.
Juan Gonzalez Machain (Brad) studied Vocal Performance and Musical Theatre at the University of Miami and was most recently seen as Peter in Entr’acte’s summer production of Jesus Christ Superstar. Other credits include Jesus in Entr’acte’s Godspell , Matt in The Fantasticks (The Lyric Theatre) Kenny in Edith Can Shoot Things and Hit Them (New Theatre in Miami) and Van in Dog Sees God (University of Miami). Juan has also toured Latin America for six months with the Argentinean Educational Theater Company ARTSPOT.
Entr’acte Theatrix, is a not-for-profit, semi-professional, showcase company for young actors, providing performance opportunities for emerging theatre artists. An off-shoot of the Palm Beach Principal Players, a twelve-year-old acting company for theater students of high school and college age, Entr’acte, as the name suggests, is the “next step,” from classroom to career, and provides the young actor his or her first professional, all-important, resume-building credit.
The Rocky Horror Show will run for 12 performances only, from October 25 – November 4, at the Crest Theatre at the Delray Beach Center for the Arts at Old School Square. The theatre is located at 51 North Swinton Avenue, Delray Beach, 33444. Tickets are on sale now, and are available by calling 561-243-7922.
