CLARKSVILLE, TN — Dig out your fishnet stockings, dust off your stilettos and “Rediscover the Fantasy” of Richard O’Brien’s cult classic The Rocky Horror Show!   Prepare to dance the “Time Warp” like never before with that sweet transvestite and his motley crew, as they return for the eleventh year in an annual tradition at the Roxy Regional Theatre, on Thursday, October 12, at 7:00pm.

Bradley Oosterink and Kayla Brandt star as sweethearts Brad and Janet, who innocently set out to visit an old professor one fateful night.  The night out is destined to be one they will never forget, as a thunderstorm and a flat tire lead them to the castle of Dr. Frank-N-Furter, an alien, transvestite scientist with a manic genius and insatiable libido, played by a stiletto and fishnet stocking-clad Travis Ulrich.

Through elaborate dances and rock songs, Frank-N-Furter unveils his latest creation: a muscular man named Rocky.  A loving homage to the cult-classic, sci-fi film and horror genres with an irresistible rock ‘n’ roll score, this is a hilarious, wild ride that Clarksville will not soon forget.
