APAC Casts "The Rocky Horror Show"
Richard O'Brien's cult classic rock musical "The Rocky Horror Show" will be offered by Aloha Performing Arts Company as a special, limited engagement of four performances only at the historic Aloha Theatre, at 7:30 p.m. October 27, 28, 30, and 31. Miguel Montez heads up the cast as Dr. Frank'n'furter, the alien transvestite scientist on the brink of a major discovery in his lab. One fateful night, Brad Majors and Janet Weiss, a wholesome, normal couple played by Brett McCardle and Alana Baxter, set out to visit an old professor, Dr. Scott, portrayed by Victor Lugo.
A thunderstorm and a flat tire force them to seek shelter at Frank'nfurter's castle. The mad doctor and his assistants Magenta, Riff Raff, and Columbia, played by Kaitlin Moore, Wendy Buzby, and Jaquelynn Collier welcome the innocent pair, undress them, and sweep them into the preparations for the unveiling of the doctor's latest creation, Rocky, portrayed by Barry Levine. Also in the cast are Evan Dooley as the Narrator, John Cottle as Eddie, and Rachel "Dove" DeMoss, Sarah Friedman, Chamika Fujioka, Nikki Johnson, Miles Lugo, Nancy Montez, and Kaili Yuen as Phantoms, ghostly castle minions.
