Official trailer for The Rocky Horror Show at the Stratford Festival

The trailer for “The Rocky Horror Show” at the Stratford Festival, directed by Donna Feore, was just released.

Quite unlike anything ever seen at the Avon theatre, “The Rocky Horror Show” at the Stratford Festival encourages audience participation.

Fans of the film know the rituals of throwing rice, toast and playing cards at the screen. Then there’s the scene in the film where Janet puts a newspaper over her head to protect herself from the rain. At some screenings fans squirt water guns during the scene to create the effect of rain.

But at live performances these traditions are prohibited – mostly for the safety of the actors.

Fans are invited to carry on the tradition of yelling back at the characters in the film. For example when a character says Brad’s name, the audience shouts “asshole,” and every time someone says Janet’s name they shout “slut.”

The festival is also inviting people to dance during performances, particularly during the “Time Warp.” The Festival’s website reminds audience members to take care while dancing, “the average theatre seat doesn’t allow a whole lot of room for a jump to the left or a step to the ri-i-i-i-i-ight, so do please be careful of your neighbours’ feet.”

Come dressed for the occasion, you might meet Donna Feore.
