Third Time’s a Charm…
New TCR site will open with audience favorite "Rocky Horror"

Back by popular demand and just in time for Halloween, Theatre Cedar Rapids will stage its third production of the rockin’ cult classic, The Rocky Horror Show, playing this Oct.24 thru Nov. 1 at TCR’s new location by Lindale Mall.

“We are pushing the envelope of outrageous with a brand-new, glam-rock approach and a formidable Frank N. Furter,” said Damon Cole, production and music director of Rocky. “[It’s] larger than life and with a naughty sense of humor.”

TCR’s third production of Rocky Horror won’t be a carbon copy of the previous two. It features a mostly new cast and director, audiences will be seeing an entirely different production design, and—most notably—the show will be staged in an entirely new performance venue.

While TCR’s home in the Iowa Theatre Building remains closed for flood repairs, staff and volunteers worked long hours to build the new “TCR Lindale” site. Located at 4444 1st Ave. NE, the new venue will house all productions for the remainder of the theatre’s 75th Anniversary season, and Rocky will be the premier production in the new space.

Rocky’s premiere in the new TCR Lindale space will bring that building full circle back to its performance venue roots. The facility once housed the Plaza theatre, and more recently Let’s Dance.

If you’ve never seen the Rocky Horror Show, here’s a quick explanation: Brad and Janet have a wholesome existence until a fateful meeting with Dr. Frank N. Furter and his crew of alien misfits. Caught up in Frank’s web of sexual intrigue, murder, and medical experimentation, Brad and Janet’s lives quickly unravel.

Still, most people don’t come to Rocky for the plot. What makes the show such a hit with audiences is the memorable music, not to mention the up-close and personal relationship between the actors on stage and patrons in the house.

Rocky audiences have full permission to shout call-backs, sing and dance along to the “Time Warp,” dress in outrageous costumes, and throw things at actors (pre-approved items only).

Rocky performs for two weekends only on Friday and Saturday nights, Oct. 24 thru Nov.1, and will feature an early show at 7:30 p.m. and a late show at 10:30 p.m. each night. For tickets call the TCR Box Office at 366-8591, visit them online at www.theatrecr.org, or stop by the Box Office at 800 2nd Ave. SE in Cedar Rapids.
