After an 18 month hiatus, the Waterfront Playhouse on Mallory Square will open its doors with the “wacky and tacky” cult musical The Rocky Horror Show.
This production played a sold out run at the Waterfront Playhouse in 2019 and will feature most of the cast from that production. Directed and Choreographed by Tom Thayer, Set Design by Michael Boyer, and Lighting Design by Kim Hanson this production will star International Star Christopher Peterson in the role of that sweet transvestite Dr. Frank-N-Furter. Peterson, the star of La-De-Da’s Eyecon’s, most recently appeared on the Waterfront stage in Priscilla Queen of the Desert, which was the last production at the Waterfront prior to the covid shut down. That lovable duo, Brad and Janet, will again be played by Key West favorites Arthur Crocker and Belle Jampol.
Crocker also appeared in Priscilla Queen of the Desert while Jampol has been entertaining Key West as lead singer for Coconut Victrola. That mad three-some, Magenta, Riff-Raff and Columbia, will be played by Jillian Todd, Donovan Pavlicek and Carolyn Cooper. Ross Pipkin will dance into the role of Eddie, John McDonald will return as Dr. Scott and Tony Konrath will again play the Narrator.
The role of Rocky will be played by Joshua Lawson. Joshua Lawson is a performer who has worked in many facets of entertainment. He most recently was Dance Captain and actor/singer in Beach Blanket Beagle at Cedar Point Theme Park as well as Mainstage dancer traveling to Asia with Princess Cruises.
The Rocky Horror Show is a rock and roll parody of B-Movie horror flicks and tells the tale of Brad and Janet who, on a fateful night, stumble across Dr. Frank-N-Furter and his unveiling of his newest creation, Rocky! Filled with hit songs and plenty of audience participation, this musical has become an international cult favorite.
“Participation Bags” will be on-sale prior to entry to the theatre. The bags, which include “Time Warp” Dance instructions, Flashlight, Card, Noise Maker, Party Hat and Newspaper are all you need to participate with this production. (No other items are allowed).
The show runs at 8pm October 14,15,16, 20,21, 22, 23, 26, 27, 28, 29. Tickets ($50/$60) can be obtained visiting www.waterfrontplayhouse.org or call 305-294-5015.
