I think it's a pretty funny movie with some good music. Perverts beware! Humor and rock and roll are the Devil's handmaidens.
I guess going to the Rocky Horror Picture show is worse than underage drinking and premarital sex in the back seat on a dirt road.
There are worse things in this world than the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Why don't we focus on them first?
the boro is a college town geecheedude- if you think the rocky horror picture show is perversion and debauchery at its utmost you really need to get out more- theres more wildness round these parts than you would imagine! ms kelly would probably be amused- ill always remember her passing me on I-16 one early sunday am going about 85
I bet mrs.Emma would love to see the costumes and the interactions and would be up front with her newspaper,rice,flashlight, bells, toast,etc...doing the time warp..... applauding the creativity and the theater interaction. Mrs. Emma was a wonderful spirit and is greatly missed. But yes we better be careful... I mean next thing you will be telling us that shakespeare had all the women's parts were played by men so no shakespearean plays... wouldn't that be a "drag"...
Rocky Horror is one of my favorite weeks of the year and judging from the turn out that we have every year, I think that there are a lot of people who feel the same way. I have been involved with the show for four years now and I love every minute of it. I'm not a college student. I'm a parent and I'm proud to say that Statesboro is growing and that every year we have more and more local attendees. The shows aren't just packed with college kids and everyone seems to have a great time.
Yes, the movie is crazy but the people in the show and the people who come out to see it are awesome. I love all of the costumes and seeing people applaud for the guys in drag instead of heckling is a pretty great feeling and makes me just that much more proud of our town.
I've lived in Statesboro my entire life. I don't even remember this, but a friend of mind told me about this time in 7th grade where I showed him my rented copy of RHPS from Video Warehouse and told him he should watch it. Honestly, I was too young to be watching it. In the 8th grade while my friends were partying with kids in High School and getting into drugs, I would sneak in my shed I made into an area to hang out with my friends and watch movies. One of them being this one. RHPS is no more crude and vulgar than most video games and TV shows parents are letting their children play and watch these days. I'd much rather have my daughter hang out with her friends watching some musical about transexual aliens than glued to a violent video game. Growing up here, it was hard being accepted because 1) I was poor and 2) I was "different". But my parents taught me love and acceptance and it's really nice sitting in a theatre with 320 other people who can laugh and have a good time.
Perversion doesn't abound at the RHPS. Yes, there are people running around half-naked, but it has to do more with the fact that it's somewhere someone can do so without being judged. There are plenty of people who wear lingerie to RHPS because they know it's for fun and no one's comparing them to the better in-shape or better endowed person next to them. As for pictures on Facebook, the cast is usually the only ones getting tagged on Facebook since for the most part, they follow a strict "no names" rule. In addition, anyone who goes to the show and takes pictures will be more than happy to take them down if someone is unhappy with their "drag" picture on Facebook. Also, no one can tag you without your consent. I've never been groped or otherwise touched without my consent or by strangers. If you really don't like it, just don't go to it. It's fun for all involved and I know plenty of parents who go with their teenagers so they can watch and enjoy too. It's always had a strong showing at any establishment that chose to feature it in Statesboro.
