Rocky Horror returns to Southern Illinois, this time in two different forms.

On Friday, November 2 and Saturday, November 3, the Student Programming Council at SIU will present their annual screening of Jim Sharman’s 1975 cult classic film in the Student Center Ballrooms. People are invited to either come watch the film or engage in the reenactments that have become a favorite of devotees of the film.

Both screenings take place at midnight. Admission is $3 with valid student identification or $4 for the general public. Prop bags are available for $3, and include noiseblowers, party hats, and confetti.

For more information, call SPC at (618) 536-3393 or log on to <http://www.spc4fun.com>.

Skyline Creek Productions will perform a theatrical version of the play upon which the film is based Friday, November 3 and Saturday, November 3 at the Marion Cultural and Civic Center.

Written by Richard O'Brien (who went on to play Riff Raff in the film), the play premiered in 1973 and has since gone onto see thousands of productions around the world.

Vinny Segretario, who is codirecting the play along with Dance4Grandma Theatricals founder Derek Hamblin, says this will be a unique event for Southern Illinois.

“They show the movie every year, but that seems to be about it,” Segretario says. “Up until now there was really no live production of The Rocky Horror Show.... This is really the first production [of the play] that has come to Southern Illinois.”

Segretario says fans of the film will find a lot of familiar elements in the play, but will find plenty of differences as well.

“It’s all the songs that you remember from the movie, updated and revamped, and one or two new songs that weren’t featured in the movie but were featured in the original production,” Segretario says. “That’s pretty interesting because you get to see different characters sing songs that you never got to see before.... It’s a new look at Rocky Horror.”

The audience participation that is such a major part of the film version will be here as well, but Segretario says that with the relationship between live actors and live audience it takes on a different dimension.

“All the famous lines they yell out during a show, they’re about the same,” Segretario says. “You’ve just got to pay attention because these are live actors, and you spend a lot of time thinking of things to say to the audience at the screen. But now whenever you say something to the stage or if you yell audience-participation lines, don’t be surprised that you might get a reply now. When you yell out something, they might yell something back.”

Segretario adds that fans of the film will be perfectly at home with this stage production, but encourages them to come prepared for a totally different experience.

“Don’t expect to come watch the movie,” Segretario says. “If you want to watch the movie, you can go pop it in a DVD player or go see it at SIU again. But if you want to come see something brand-new, something completely revamped, this is the new Rocky Horror.”

The play will take place at 7 p.m. and midnight each night.

Tickets sell for $12, and prop bags are extra. For tickets, stop by or call the civic center box office at (618) 997-4030 or visit <http://www.MarionCCC.org>.
