'Rocky Horror Picture Show' returns to Sooner Theatre for Halloween

"The Rocky Horror Picture Show" returns to the historic Sooner Theatre in downtown Norman.

The cult favorite will be shown with a live cast on Saturday, Halloween night, at 10 p.m. at 101 E. Main St.

Tickets are $10 and available for purchase in advance at The Standing Buffalo Indian Art Gallery -- Gifts, located directly across the street from the Sooner Theatre.

Tom Farris, producer and host of the show, is proud to have created the liveliest Halloween tradition in Norman.

"The greatest thing about Rocky Horror is that it allows the audience to participate and have fun singing and acting along with the movie. It is a great opportunity for young adults and the young at heart to get out on Halloween night in a costume and have a fun and a unique experience," Farris said.

Unlike most presentations of Rocky Horror, Farris does not use a cast of actors, but instead pulls members from the costumed audience to act out the movie on stage as it plays across the screen.

"I like the idea that anyone who comes to the show has a chance to be in the cast, and it really encourages people to get creative with their costumes," he said.

For the ease of his audience, Farris has created prop bags filled with the necessary items for an interactive experience. Prop bags will be sold in the lobby prior to show time.

For more information, call 818-7238 or e-mail Farris at tcfarris@hotmail.com.

  • Nova Pettigrew Deli plans benefit Thursday night for young cancer patient

    Two-year old Nova Pettigrew was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer six weeks ago. Her father, former Deli sound technician and musician James Pettigrew, noticed something was wrong when running turned to walking, then limping, then crawling.
    Pettigrew had never heard of RMS, a rare form of cancer that affects nerves and has hampered Nova’s ability to move, but almost immediately, when doctors at OU Children’s Hospital started intense rounds of chemo, he quit his job to be by his daughter’s side.
