The Rocky Horror Show

October 20-31, 2021

Shasta Hall, University Theatre

Books, Musics, and Lyrics by Richard O'Brien
Directed by Michelle Felten

Ticket Price
$20 general, $18 senior, $15 student

Richard O’Brien’s The Rocky Horror Show is a hilarious, brash, campy, and unapologetically wild tribute to B-Sci-fi film and horror movies, with an irresistible rock’n’roll score. One fateful night, a wholesome, well-behaved, young couple innocently set out to visit an old professor until their car breaks down in front of the old “Frankenstein Place”. The night’s misadventures will cause the couple, to question everything they’ve known about themselves, each other, love, and lust. “The Rocky Horror Show is a haven for people of all stripes to be their most brilliant, strange, honest, fabulous, and frightening selves”. Come celebrate the re-opening of Live Theatre at Sacramento State at this musical blow-out with a come-as-you-are attitude for performers and audience alike… and feel free to sing along! “Let’s do the Time Warp again!”

We welcome your enthusiastic participation, but please no noise makers, squirt guns, phone flash lights, food or throwing of projectiles in the University Theatre. Warning: The Rocky Horror Show is known to have a cult following that embraces audience participation including strong language and shouting at the performers. While this is a part of the experience, we do ask our vocally expressive patrons to please keep the naughty language to a minimum. We are a watcher friendly production of Rocky (including younger viewers and grandparents). Strobe lighting and fog and hazing effects will be used. Thank you and Enjoy the Show!
Appropriate for PG 12

Dance Nation

November 10 - 21, 2021

Shasta Hall, Playwrights' Theatre

By Clare Barron
Directed by Nicole C. Limón

Ticket Price
$18 general, $15 senior, $12 student

Somewhere in America, an army of pre-teen competitive dancers plots to take over the world. And if their new routine is good enough, they’ll claw their way to the top at Nationals. A play about ambition, growing up, and finding yourself without losing yourself, Dance Nation is an unrelenting exploration of female power featuring a diverse cast of actors of all ages, shapes, sizes and souls portraying our adolescent dance team.

Amina is the star dancer, Zuzu is always second best. They are great friends, and fierce competitors. With a devoted group of teammates who support each other, moms who try to understand them but probably don’t, and a coach who pushes them, these pre-teens both, recognize the divine feminine power they hold, and grapple with their impending journey into womanhood and societal constructs that work to erase their magic.

Dance Nation Content Advisory: DANCE NATION contains mature content including the use of strong language, reference to sex/sexuality, self-harm, and menstruation.

“Insanely talented playwright Clare Barron…conjures the passionate ambivalence of early adolescence with such being-there sharpness and poignancy. A blazingly original play.” – The New York Times
