DID SOMEONE MENTION A VIRGIN RAFFLE?
HEY, YOU! READ THIS! WE'VE LOST OUR MINDS, AND YOU NEED TO KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON!
To celebrate BOOLESQUE'S 10th anniversary, it is our privilege to present the 1975 original version of the cult classic, "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Our superb cast of Burlesque artists will be performing specially-crafted acts as the movie rolls, and in the TRUE spirit of hardcore audience participation, Madame Corsetiere will be narrating the INCREDIBLY VULGAR secondary script and telling you silly virgins when to turn on your damned flashlights.
"INCREDIBLY VULGAR" is not an exaggeration. The secondary script is shouted at the screen by the audience, and has been in all of its offensive, strange, hilarious glory since 1975. NOTHING is off limits, including cheap shots at sexuality, politics, religion, and anything else that you wouldn't want other people to know you thought was funny. If you even THINK you may be in the mood to be offended, THIS IS NOT THE SHOW FOR YOU. Please don't come. We mean it. Go be the turd in someone else's punch bowl.
If you're not 18, stay the hell home. We don't care what sanitized reboot of Rocky Horror you've seen. This is not a "Glee" sing along, Skippy. Don't you have homework to do?
This is a semi-restricted prop show. Our venue was built in 1881 and is on the National Register of Historic Places. The audience will be drinking from open cups, and would rather not have stuff land in their drink. Also, we'd like to continue to be welcome at the Mauch Chunk Opera House, so DON'T BE A DICK and observe the rules:
NO THROWN PROPS!
- NO WATER/SQUIRT GUNS/SPRAY BOTTLES/SUPER SOAKERS
- NO RICE, NO TOAST, NO HOT DOGS, OR ANY OTHER FOOD
- NO CONFETTI OR SILLY STRING

And one more thing...
Madame will be sacrificing Virgins, but they'll be paying for the privilege. Buy a raffle ticket right before the show starts, and you might be one of the four WILLING adults chosen at random to lose your Rocky Horror V-card to the twisted mistress herself. Don't be a wuss.
