Painted Perversion/The Rocky Horror Picture Show W/Special Guest

Hello fellow Transylvanians, Rocky Virgins and Worshipers of D.C.,

Hope each and every one of you enjoyed the holidays. It is a new year and Rocky Horror/Painted Perversion is celebrating this year with new and exciting pre-shows and contests. But we can't do Rocky Horror without your support. As it stands right now, this maybe the last Rocky Horror to ever grace the Michigan Theatre stage. We need at least 100 fans to attend and show your support. Otherwise, Painted Perversion and Rocky Horror will vanish from the history books as we know it. SO, invite your friends; invite your family; invite people off the street and come show the Michigan Theatre that Rocky Horror and Painted Perversion will be around for a long time from now. That said, onto the info you will need to know.

This month, Painted Perversion is proud to have as our guest Wednesday Lee Friday. Wednesday is an accomplished horror writer with astonishing tales of murder, pain, and pleasure (for more info, please visit her website at http://www.wednesdayleefriday.com/). Wednesday will be on hand for an evening of Q/A and book signing (she will even amaze us by reading an excerpt from some of her books). If you are fans of Wednesday, then you know this is an opportunity not to miss. And if your not, come see why you should be fans of hers. You get all this and of course.......

Painted Perversion proudly presents The Rocky Horror Picture Show at the Michigan Theatre in Downtown Jackson, Michigan. Be sure to come early to experience our unusual and entertaining Pre-Shows. Drag Racing Returns in a whole new way!! Come dressed in DRAG (men and women) and challenge our #1 Drag Racer to a race!! Also, the costume contest returns. For this month, come dressed as your Favorite RHPS character and win a prize (1st prize is a set of passes from the Michigan Theatre; 2nd prize is a "one of a kind" Painted Perversion panty signed by the entire cast).

Show date is March 27th, 2010 at 11:00 PM. Since the doors will open at 10PM, Wednesday will be doing Q/A from 10:30-11:00PM and then the book signing begins at 11:00PM (with pre-show to follow). Tickets are $10 per person (the updated price is for the cleaning and maintenance of the theatre, not our idea; but we understand the need for a cleaning crew). For that classic Rocky experience, audience participation prop bags will be free for every person with a paid admission. With that in mind; OPEN FLAMES, outside props, outside food/drink; will NOT be allowed at the theatre. This is a Rated R movie. 17 and up can get in to see the movie.
