Deviant Culture Club puts on Rocky Horror Picture Show

Michael Rennie was ill, while the Earth stood still, but he told us where we stand and Flash Gordon was there in silver underwear, Claude Raines was the Invisible Man

So begins the wild campus event that is the Deviant Culture Clubs (DCC) production of The Rocky Horror Picture Show (RHPS). Yes, its back to Time Warp and strut in ridiculously high heels again. And this time, the cast is bigger, better, and sexier then ever.

For the newbies among us (commonly referred to as “virgins” by the DCC), Rocky is not only a theatrical event, but a mind-blowing experience.

While the cult classic is played on a giant screen at midnight in Schwartz Hall, cast members pantomime the action onscreen in full costume on the stage for the excitable crowd. The audience also gets in on the action by yelling lines, callbacks, and throwing objects such as bread at the actors. In addition, the pre-show entertainment promises to be something amazing as the talented Tracy Latimer is once again in the cast as well as directing what will be an incredible performance.

Mike Still 08, is in cast for the fourth time and spoke with Diverse City for a few moments about the show. I love the club and the show. In the past, Ive played Eddie, Dr. Scott, Rocky, and Ill be Frank this semester. Everyone should see the show at least once as its an awesome experience and it only costs $1!”

Cant get enough of RHPS? The club hosts trips into Harvard Square to see the professional Full Body Cast from Cambridge do their version of the show several times a semester. The next excursion is tentatively scheduled soon after the Brandeis show;
