An event every day that begins at 7:00 pm, repeating until October 9, 2021
Rocky Horror Picture Show is back at Beacon Park with its popular Shadow Cast. The Detroit Actor’s Theatre Company and Downtown Detroit Partnership will present this Halloween cult classic October 7-9 at 8:00 p.m. For those unfamiliar with this type of show, a shadow cast is a troupe of actors who act/mime/dance in front of a large screen that is showing the film. In essence, a shadow cast brings the movie to life!
Shadow cast definition: For those unfamiliar, this tradition actually seems to have originated with the ever-dedicated fans of The Rocky Horror Picture Show! A shadow cast is an ensemble of artists that act out the movie while it is playing; oftentimes dancing and singing live. They also serve as the catalysts for the audience cues to participate in callbacks and use their props.
DATC tradition: DATC began presenting this production in 2014. Each year the turnout has grown larger and larger.
