Some overtures haveincluded music from the “Floor Show” segment, “O Fortuna,” Beethoven’s Ninth, and theLachrymosa; past entr’actes have been “Time Warp,” Toccata and Fugue, “The Ballad of Sweeney Todd,” “What’s This?” (from The Nightmare Before Christmas ), etc. Suggestedmusical cues based on the successful Stage Right production are included at points as part of thisprompt book.  CAST(In Order of Appearance)-   USHERETTE / MAGENTA-   BRAD-   JANET-   NARRATOR-   RIFF-RAFF-   COLUMBIA-   FRANK ‘N’ FURTER-   ROCKY-   EDDIE / DR. SCOTT-   6 PHANTOMS / TRANSYLVANIANS(used onstage & off as backup singers as well as understudies)NOTE ABOUT ENSEMBLEThe number of Phantoms / Transylvanians may be larger than six for a production if you have ahuge company. They are to be subdivided early on in production into two groups, arbitrarilynamed “Good” and “Evil” ensembles, though neither group exhibits any behavior different thanthe others.NOTE ABOUT SCENERYThe set is not a standard proscenium—it extends on three sides of the audience.-   At C.S. is Frank’s mansion, with tacky baroque decoration. In the middle of that wall is acurtained partition that serves as Frank’s usual entrance, a few steps off the main stagelevel. Next to it is a large Coke machine (6’6”, 7’ high, and 4.5’ wide).-   The area between C.S. (main platform) and the platform towards S.L. is bridged byanother platform, this containing a large sarcophagus.-   The S.L. platform is mostly bare, and its back wall is a large projection screen.-   The S.R. platform is the Narrator’s basic location, containing a large easy chair, a desk with the iconic “fishnet leg lamp” from  A Christmas Story , and various props.-   From C.S., a long ramp descends down into the main aisle of the Audience, and variousstairs at other parts of the stage allow entrances and exits, both backstage and through thehouse.  PRE-SHOW INSTRUCTIONS-   Audiences are ushered into a hallway adjacent to the auditorium by a large ensemblemember in a monster costume.-   At the door, they are met by ensemble members in groups of two – a barker and a mute(typically dressed as a famous “scary” personage that’s easy to pantomime). The barkerdirects them to the mute, who takes their tickets, while the barker passes out programs,gets them pumped up, and directs them on some simple callbacks.-   The barkers direct audience members to follow stagehands and ushers, both male andfemale, dressed in black with fishnets and novelty wigs, to their seats. They play off thegeneral appearance and hair color of these stagehands and ushers and improvise newnames for them (blondes: “Britney Spears without her makeup”; “Cameron Diaz’s uglysister”; “Lady Gaga on a bad day,” etc. – redheads: “The less-attractive one of theCharlie’s Angels”; “Lindsay Lohan, as she looks now,” etc.)-   Once in the main auditorium, ensemble in full costume mingles with the audience andcreates a costume party feeling.-   At half hour, NARRATOR takes stage accompanied by several ensemble members,including TRANSYLVANIAN W/ CANE. Ensemble in audience line up “Rockyvirgins” and process them onstage one by one. As each reaches stage, NARRATORimprovises with them a bit, starts a 3-2-1 countdown, paddles them with riding crop. If two come on at once, CANE gets one while NARRATOR gets other. If NARRATORspots someone he knows, bring them onstage, introduce them (usually as son ordaughter), and make them do something especially humiliating.-   Rehearse Time Warp steps and Rocky cheer with audience at certain point before curtain.-   EDDIE/DR. SCOTT, acting as stage manager and having watched the proceedings forsome time, comes out and declares show time.NARRATOR(To Audience)Sit down and shut up!(Lights dim.)Hello ladies and gentlemen, and all you virgins in the house. The Rocky Horror Show is aboutto begin, and aren’t you all shivering with antici… pation? I do, however, ask that you grant mea few, small, tiny requests: we love your enthusiasm, we adore your partici… pation, weworship your very presence in the theater; but please, don’t throw anything at the cast on stage,we bruise easily. Go ahead and throw things, just not at us. We don’t mind flash photography,but if you flash us, we’ll flash you. I know you’re filming us; it wouldn’t be the first timesomeone made a grainy night-vision video of me. Please don’t jump on the stage during theshow or we will have to hurt you; however, if you do get hurt, I’m more than willing to representyou in court. If you’re hungry or thirsty, don’t forget to visit the concession stand… of doom!And turn off your cell phone – everyone will be screaming anyway, so you won’t be able to hearit.(Band has brief jam as announcer introduces each member by name during their solo.)Live from Denton, it’s Saturday night!(NARRATOR vacates the stage as overture begins. When overture ends, BLACKOUT.)
