Hello everyone! I am back again with some news about shows and events happening in our community.
Starting this weekend throughout October, Ti-Ahwaga Community Players are performing Richard O’ Brien’s The Rocky Horror Show, Fridays and Saturdays starting at 8pm, and Sunday’s at 2pm. The show dates are; September 30th, October 1st, 2nd, 7th, 8th, 9th, 14th, and 16th. Tickets are $30 each, and you can buy the tickets online at: https://tiahwaga.com/. I myself will be attending this weekend, and I cannot wait!
Coming up in a few weeks The Muse of Fire will be hosting events in October, just in time for the spooky season. The first one on our roster will be our own Live Shadowcast of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Now, you’re probably wondering what a shadow cast is. A shadow cast is an ensemble of actors that perform the movie while it is playing; oftentimes dancing and singing live. This will be a free event to attend! Professors, students, and community members are welcome to attend! We will have concessions, and audience participation is more than welcome. But, make sure to keep your kids at home, this will be a 17+ show! This will be happening October 19th, at 9:15pm, located in the Schuler Theatre. A small $5 donation would be greatly appreciated and suggested.
The cast of actors include; both community members, and current CCC students:
Brad Majors- Jonathan Howland
Janet Weiss- Emma Kephart
The Criminologist- Alan Cameron Caum
Riff-Raff- Gavin Michaud
Magenta- Cassidy Harriger
Columbia- Jasmine Helles
Frank-N-Furter- Ethan Davidson
Rocky Horror- Jake Emerson Schultze
Eddie- Mateo Rivera
Dr. Scott- Greg Mathews.
We all hope you can make it to a fun night!
A week after the shadow cast, Muse of Fire would like to invite you all; students, professors, and community members to join us in After Hours! What is that? You might ask. Well after hours is a late night talent show we like to put on. You can sign up and do anything you would like; whether that be to sing, act, dance, read a poem, magic. Anything! This event is happening October 26th at 9:30pm located in the Schuyler Theatre, and tickets are $3 a student, and $5 for anyone else, but performers will get in for free! We are hosting this in October, so we are having a Halloween/Spooky theme, which means wearing costumes is more than welcome! We hope to see you there, to show us what you’ve got!
