Rocky Horror Picture Show // SATURDAY, July 7
In 1975 something amazing happened: Rocky Horror Picture Show burst on the scene and life would never be the same again – especially for college kids who want to throw toast and toilet paper. On top it all, The Come Again Players present a shadow cast performance of the movie the first Saturday of every month! Audience participation makes this a spectacle not to be missed. South Hadley’s Tower Theaters. And it all begins at midnight! 19 College St., South Hadley.
