Audience costume contest part of PVCC's 'The Rocky Horror Show'

Don’t slip on that holiday sweater just yet. The Piedmont Virginia Community College Theatre Department will open its production of “The Rocky Horror Show” at 7:30 p.m. Friday in the Main Stage Theater in the V. Earl Dickinson Building.

Other performances will begin at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Micah Consylman, a musician and actor known to Charlottesville music fans as a member of the gothic rock band Bella Morte in the 1990s, stars as Dr. Frank N. Furter. There will be accompaniment by a live band.

Brad Stoller, associate professor of theater arts at PVCC, directs. Assistant directors are students Emily Thomas-Clarke and Eliza Banaszak, who also plays Janet. Together, the cast and crew are following Richard O’Brien’s original script, which means there will be some differences from the film version. Look for more than one narrator, and keep an eye out for a shift in Furter’s mad scientist character.

About that Christmas sweater: There will be a costume contest during intermission each night to give audience members a chance to participate.

The play contains adult language and is not recommended for children.

Tickets are $12; seniors and students pay $10. Get your tickets in advance online at or by phone at (434) 961-5376. Tickets also can be purchased during business hours at the PVCC Cashier’s Office and at the box office starting two hours before each performance.

The Dickinson Building, at the south end of College Drive on the main campus, is accessible to audience members using wheelchairs. Plenty of free parking is available.
