Smack your lips, gird your loins and tighten your corset for The Rocky Horror Show – a delectable, cult-classic musical with unforgettable characters and steamy musical numbers.

This salute to B-movies and sci-fi thrillers will tempt you to dance the “Time Warp”, seduce you with a “Sweet Transvestite” and leave you howling, “Hot Patootie, Bless My Soul”!

ROCKY Etiquette

Here are a few tips and tricks to make the most out of your experience while attending The Rocky Horror Show at Hart House Theatre.

Dress to impress. Whatever that means to you, just go for it. Shed your inhibitions and let loose, much like the characters on stage. Gowns, garters, leather and lace, just because you’re not on stage doesn’t mean you shouldn’t feel the fantasy!

Audience Participation. Don’t run away just yet. The Frankenstein Place, while excessive and wild, is a safe space and your level of participation is up to you. Just be aware that your friendly neighbours may be die-hard fans and know when it’s their turn to yell out and get involved in the show. Feel free to join in at your own pace, just make sure you’re following the script, no one wants angry notes from the Stage Manager.

There’s no crying in baseball and no throwing in Rocky. Nada, niche, nothing. No toast, no rice, no playing cards, no stray candies from your handbag and definitely no squirting of water. Our ushers all hold black-belts and will quickly remove you from your seat and make you stand at attention in the lobby for the rest of the show. Trust us, the view is far better from your seat.

Now that you know the ins and outs of etiquette around The Rocky Horror Show we hope you are already on Pinterest to plan your outfit and we will see you Sept. 27-Oct. 12, 2019!

The Usherettes take us through a few if the finer points of etiquette when attending THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW.
