The Waterloo Community Playhouse will be holding auditions for the cult phenomenon hit The Rocky Horror Show in late November.  Audition dates and times are Sunday, November 27 at 2 pm and Tuesday, November 29 at 7 pm. The show will be performed January 20-29, 2017.

The show is a humorous tribute to the science fictions and horror B movies of the late 1940’s through the early 1970’s. The musical tells the story of a newly engaged couple getting caught in a storm and coming to the home of a mad transvestite scientist unveiling his new creation, a muscle man named Rocky.

Auditions will consist of reading from the script, a song (must bring your own sheet music), and a brief dance audition. Monologues are not required.

The cast includes the following characters:

Narrator (M or F, 18-64), mostly non-singing, guides us through the show in a dry-humor fashion, a unique speaking voice is required, must have a strong presence.

Dr. Frank ‘N’ Furter: (M, 27-50) baritone/tenor, a cross dressing mad scientist/transvestite from the planet Transsexual in the galaxy of Transylvania, brilliant comic timing and very charismatic.

Brad Majors: (M, 20-30) tenor with a high G, a handsome and wholesome young man, must be able to play stilted innocence and as well as some fragility

Janet Weiss (F, 20-30) Mezzo with a belt, occasional high F, a youthful, pretty and wholesome young woman, she is coy and shy at first but then becomes sexy and outlandish

Riff Raff (M, 25-50) Strong rock tenor, high B, an eccentric butler of Dr. Frank ‘N’ Furter, must be able to sufficiently “scream” the Time Warp.

Magenta (F, 20-40) Husky Rock Mezzo/Alto, Low B to High E Flat, a very strange servant, could have an Eastern European accent, an exotic beauty, she exudes sex, also appears as “Trixie-the Usherette” and sings Science Fiction Double Feature.

Rocky (M, 20-30), A very fit individual that the Dr. creates as the perfect male body. Sings I am Just Seven Hours Old….

Columbia (F, 20-30) Magenta’s partner in crime and love. A bit bouncier than the laid back Magenta.

Eddie (M, 20-35), A motorcycle rebel who sings Hot Patootie, Bless my Soul. Played by Meatloaf in the movie.

Dr. Everett Scott (M 30-60) The wheelchair bound doctor who’s technology has been warped. Sings in a speak song way.

Transylvanians/Phantoms (M and F, 18-64) Will play a variety of characters such as wedding guests, laboratory minions, servants and aliens.

The Waterloo Community Playhouse is committed to open and fair auditions. Experience is not required. We are looking to cast a diverse cast of characters for this fun romp of a show.  This show does include a 11 pm performance on Saturday, January 21st. Come and have a good time with this production.
