Rocky Horror Show Auditions


The antici… pation is over! Theater Arts Guild (TAG) is very excited to offer our first full-length, mainstage musical since before the pandemic! It’s been a long couple years and we have missed sharing art with our community. 

Rocky Horror Show is a risqué, interactive musical comedy with a twist of horror and plenty of surprises. It follows the story of newly engaged Brad & Janet who find themselves at the castle of a mad scientist transvestite from Transsexual, Transylvania.
