LEGENDARY “ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW” 48th ANNIVERSARY TOUR
TO PLAY BALBOA THEATRE ON OCTOBER 7
Barry Bostwick, Who Plays Brad Majors in the Film, Will Host the Event & Greet Fans In-person
SAN DIEGO (May 15, 2023) — The Rocky Horror Picture Show, the cult classic film about an unsuspecting young couple who stumble upon a castle inhabited by a mad scientist & his bizarre entourage, will play at the historic Balboa Theatre on Saturday, October 7. Tickets will be available starting May 19 at 10 AM on at https://bit.ly/RockyHorrorSanDiego.
It won’t be a typical moviegoing experience – a live “shadow cast” of performers will take the stage with the film playing behind them. The audience is also an active part of the show with chants, props, dances, and more! Actor Barry Bostwick will serve as the evening’s master of ceremonies; his portrayal of leading man Brad Majors in the film has made him beloved by generations of fans for nearly 50 years. Limited VIP tickets are available and include a meet and greet with Bostwick. The evening will also include a costume contest and memorabilia display with artifacts and costumes from the movie.
Bostwick explains why The Rocky Horror Picture Show has such an enduring legacy: “It’s fun, noisy, and rude, and only exists today because of the dedicated fanbase and incredible ‘shadow casts’ from around the world. Three generations of partygoers have passed it down from one to another.”
The Rocky Horror Picture Show 48th Anniversary Spectacular with Barry Bostwick is proudly presented by San Diego Theatres, the nonprofit that operates both the Balboa Theatre and San Diego Civic Theatre. To learn more, visit www.sandiegotheatres.org.
