Star in Rocky Horror and Grease
You’ve always wanted to dress up, strut your stuff and join hundreds of others, but never had a good enough reason.
Well the Regent on Broadway is giving you the opportunity to be outrageous.
As part of the unique Regent Alive August Festival next month, NZME is sponsoring two iconic singalong movies that will allow you to strip your wardrobe and out-glam everyone else in the theatre.
The first that kicks off the festival is the cult movie, The Rocky Horror Picture
Show. Some movies are released, others escape. Rocky Horror took off 40 years ago and is still amusing the world through Richard O’Brien’s grand visual and musical camp satire of the B-movie horror and science fiction genres.
In the course of a wild and kinky rockopera party, we meet such immortal characters as Dr Frank-N-Furter, Riff Raff, Magenta, Columbia and Rocky Horror himself.
It’s those characters that you can impersonate, wear your fishnets and create your own Transylvanian experience at the Regent on Broadway on Friday August 4 at 8pm.
Be prepared for a fun night and sing every Rocky Horror number that its creator intended. Just remember to bring your driver’s licence so you can identify who you are if there’s a police cordon near your street.
The second singalong, celluloid sensation is Grease. The US musical/ romantic comedy is the enduring story of
Danny and Sandy and their friends at Rydell High in the 1950s. The movie and show produced such chart-topping numbers as Summer Nights, Hopelessly Devoted To You, Greased Lightnin’ and You’re The One That I Want.
The movie, at the Regent on Friday August 18 at 8pm, requires an oil and grease at your local hair salon and a visit to the attic to find your high school hand-me-downs. You’ll then be ready to break uncontrollably into song as you relive your high school romances and the days when your hair required scaffolding.
Both Rocky Horror and Grease will be shown on the Regent’s super screen and allow the audience to be as much a star as the classic movie characters themselves. Bookings at TicketDirect.
