Horror Show at SBHS
Santa Barbara High School is the first of the local public schools to mount their spring production, leading the charge with the ever popular The Rocky Horror Show, the stage musical from which the 1975 cult film was adapted, running April 14-22 at the school’s theater. New theater department director Gioia Marchese chose the deliberately kitschy rock ‘n’ roll sci-fi gothic thriller as perhaps the polar opposite of last fall’s serious drama, The Crucible. We’re told the production will focus on individual expression and pure fun, with performances full of spectacle and surprises, and an expansive array of opportunities for the audience to interact. And befitting the film’s cult classic appeal, there will also be a late-night show at 10 pm on April 21. Visit www.sbhstheatre.com for details and tickets.
