Stage

Rocky Horror Picture Show

When: Fridays, Saturdays, 7 p.m. and Mon., Oct. 31, 9 p.m. Continues through Oct. 29 2016

By all accounts, the Rocky Horror Picture Show isn't a terribly good movie. The effects are cheesy, the pacing is weird and the acting is uneven. But 41 years after its original release, nobody's expecting a masterfully made film. The regulars, the die-hards, go for the killer songs, from "The Time Warp" to "Sweet Transvestite" to "Hot Patootie – Bless My Soul." We go to sing, to dance, to crack vulgar jokes and to throw toast. We go because, for many, it was our first exposure to same-sex intimacy or cross-dressing. We go because sometimes seeing Patricia Quinn's big red lips singing about Michael Rennie in The Day the Earth Stood Still feels like coming home. Tonight and next weekend, Club Q is hosting its annual shadowcast of the classic, with live actors, callbacks, and party packs included with each ticket. First-timers need not fear; they've even put together a "virgin survival guide." Doors open at 6:30 p.m., show starts at 7, 3430 N. Academy Blvd., $15/$13 in advance, clubqonline.com. — Griffin Swartzell

Price: $13-$15
