In this cult classic, sweethearts Brad and Janet, stuck with a flat tire during a storm, discover the eerie mansion of Dr. Frank-N-Furter. As their innocence is lost, Brad and Janet meet a houseful of wild characters, including a rocking biker and a creepy butler. Through elaborate dances and rock songs, Frank-N-Furter unveils his latest creation: a muscular man named "Rocky."

Audience participation is encouraged. We welcome all patrons to wear their finest Rocky Horror attire, purchase our audience participation kit, and indulge in a few pre-show games! Our audience participation kit will have you throwing toilet paper at Rocky, aiming squirt guns at Brad and Janet, and making noise with the Transylvanians. Kits are $2 a piece, cash only. Saturday night features a late showing perfect for all creatures of the night. It’s sure to be a fun and rowdy experience!

Iolanthe

Thursday, February 9 - Saturday, February 11 @ 7:30 PM

Sunday, February 12 @ 3 PM

Working for a comprehensive balance in the opera repertoire for students to experience across four years of undergraduate training, this year's opera is scheduled to be Gilbert and Sullivan's Iolanthe.  As the faculty look at making sure that as many genres and style periods can be represented, there is also the continuing need to provide as many roles as possible in standard baroque, romantic, newer works, and in the case of this year, an operetta-like work in the two-hour British spoof Iolanthe with robust melody and a host of great characterizations!

Tickets coming soon!

DePauw Opera

DePauw Opera sustains a long history of preparing large works for all-undergraduate singers.  With coaching by staff accompanists, and stage direction by not only in-house faculty, but professional guest directors, the standard for DePauw Opera can be shown by fully-staged and costumed productions like Cendrillon (Massenet), Street Scene (Kurt Weill), Little Women (Mark Adamo), Dido and Aeneas (Purcell), and dozens more full productions both in English and original language with Supertitles.  DePauw Opera focuses on providing opportunities for as many students as possible as each opera is most often produced with double casting and a full orchestra in the pit in the Green Center's Moore Theatre!
