The Rocky Horror Commedia Show

9:00pm, October 23 & 24, 2009 · Nord Hall · Case Western Reserve University

It's not Just a Jump to the Left when you have Fools in Fishnets!!

Especially not when it's the second most risque show we have done! The Confused Greenies are going drag this Hallowe'en in The Rocky Horror Commedia Show, our musical spoof celebrating the *10th* anniversary of the tradition of the CWRU Film Society's Rocky Horror live shadow-cast, Voyeuristic Intentions (because it wasn't a tradition until its second year!). Capitano Francfaroné has his eye (and some other body parts) on the young heroine Lesbia but she only has eyes for her fiancé, Virginio (yes, they do not yet know just how confused they are!). With Capitano throwing a party to distract celebrate the occasion of their engagement, his abused servant Riff-Rella convincing him of a certain kind of fashion sense that attracts Lesbia, rival scientist Dottore Scotiano's out-of-this-world paranoia, lessons learned from the exotic tap-dancing Columbina, and patchwork clad Zansylvanians it's bound to be a night you will not soon forget!

Join the Players' Patchwork Parody Perversion for our very first musical production - at least if the foolish harlequin Arlecchino can get the song right! And don't forget the Voyeuristic Intentions show on Hallowe'en, October 31, at midnight! But arrive early for the Pre-Show De-Virginization Games!

Capitano Francfarone Arlecchino likes a little sax Columbina, a trixie stripper! Lesbia gives a friend some hands-on assistance
Roccino, an assistant teacher of the night It's all fun and games - including when someone gets spanked! All This and Lesbia in a Floor Show Too? Columbina entertains during an intermission
