Rocky Horror comes to Ritter for night of absolute pleasure


The Greater Huntington Parks and Recreation District is set to present Rocky Horror Picture Show at the Ritter Park Amphitheater Friday and Saturday.

When the words “cult classic” are mentioned, Rocky Horror Picture Show instantly comes to the minds of many.

Forty years after its premiere, groups all over the world still gather to dress in costume and watch the film.

The GHPRD along with the HART Choose Joy Players will show the film at the amphitheater this Halloween.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show is known to be more of an event than a film. Guests attending the show are encouraged to come in costume. There will be a costume contest at 11:30 p.m. Joshua Adkins, local make-up artist, will be at the event to help guests with their look for a small fee.

The doors open at 10 p.m. and the film will be shown at 12 a.m. Tickets can be purchased at the gate for $5.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show is known to be an interactive film. Guests can purchase ‘interactive kits’ at the event, complete with toast, squirt guns and more, for $10.

There will be concessions for sale at the event, including alcohol.

The amphitheater can be found up the hill from the tennis courts at Ritter Park at 1310 8th Avenue.
