[Salem, New York] September 19, 2023– Get ready to do the TIME WARP again! Fort Salem Theater is thrilled to announce the cast and creative team of the highly anticipated production of The Rocky Horror Show, running from October 20 to October 31, 2023 – live on the Salem stage. Although costumes are not required, patrons are welcome to dress up and join us on the fun, just in time for Halloween!
Just like in the cult-classic film, when sweethearts Brad and Jane are caught in a storm with a flat tire, they stumble upon the eerie mansion of Dr. Frank-N-Furter and his fantastical phantoms. As innocence unravels, they encounter a cast of wild characters and surprising secrets. With elaborate dances and electrifying rock songs including “The Time Warp,” “Damnit Janet,” “Hot Patootie,” and “Touch-a Touch Me,“ Frank-N-Furter unveils his masterpiece creation: the muscular man known as “Rocky.”

Krawczyk, and Tech Director Sam Victoria – joining the team all the way from Australia.
