Time Warp to the Geary!
By Claire L. Wong
There’s a reason San Franciscans identify so closely with The Rocky Horror Show. “It’s a haven for people of all stripes to be their most brilliant, strange, honest, fabulous, and terrifying selves,” says Tony Award–nominated director-choreographer Sam Pinkleton. “It’s been blowing minds and opening hearts in San Francisco and around the world for over 40 years and I am—yes—shivering with antici . . . . pation to assemble a community of Bay Area performers who will take over the Geary in 2020 to collaborate on a musical blowout that could only happen in and for San Francisco.”
For A.C.T.’s mainstage production of Richard O’Brien’s The Rocky Horror Show on the Geary stage this spring, we’re holding an open call for local Bay Area actors and performers. Auditions will be held October 31, 2019 from 10 a.m.–7 p.m. at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. Auditionees of any ethnicities, body types, gender identifications, and ability levels are welcome.
The all-star creative team bringing The Rocky Horror Show to life includes director Sam Pinkleton (Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812), associate director and co-choreographer Ani Taj (Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812), music director Ada Westfall (A Play on War), and director of casting and artistic associate Janet Foster (The Light in the Piazza).
Richard O’Brien’s The Rocky Horror Show runs April 23–May 17, with a possible extension through May 24. Tickets are on sale now!
