Do you encourage audience participation?
Yes… oh HELL YES! We want you to do the Time Warp, call Brad an Asshole, and squirt water like its goin out style! BUT, there are some important things to note:
The awesome folks that run the Wilma have asked that you leave your rice and toilet paper at home. I know, I know, but they spent months (and millions) turning that beat up old queen of a theatre into a fresh sassy girl, and the last thing we want to do is trash her! If we want to keep using this iconic space for our show year after year, we gotta be good guests. But approved alternatives will be available in the “Prop Bags” for sale at the show, so don’t you fret!
This is a live show with real live people on stage. Call backs are awesome, but heckling is for assholes (like Brad).
The original live show varies from the movie, so don’t be butt hurt if your favorite line or scene isn’t there.
Any thrown items should go UP and BACK, NOT onto the stage or toward the actors. Water from your squirt gun could ruin a microphone, and any items on stage can be downright dangerous when your are walking in big (sexy) heels. Also, leave your toast and hot dogs at home (there is no dinner scene to “toast” in the original script, and hot dogs make a nasty mess).
We want you to have ALL THE FUN, but always be respectful to the performers, your fellow audience members, and the beautiful Wilma Theatre. Also, while (lets face it) we are going to make a mess, ANY help you can offer with cleanup after the show is VERY appreciated. Just grabbing a handful of cards and your drink cup(s) makes a big difference. Our amazing cast, after Blowing Your Mind for 2 hours has to clean the theatre for our next show, so if you liked what you saw and want to thank them (and you WILL) take a couple seconds to clean up!
Should I bring my own props?
You can, but it is much easier to buy a bag with everything you’ll need at the performance. They are a measly $5 for one, or 4 for $15, and the proceeds go directly to supporting our performers and covering the massive costs of putting on the show.
Also, after being harassed like crazy over the last few years (alright, we get it… simmer down!) We will have some fly-ass posters and pimping t-shirts available.
Or you can “Grab Rocky’s Full Package”! That’s a shirt, poster AND prop bag for $20. Screaming Deal! And again, all of the proceeds go right to supporting those luscious performers…
Cash only Kittens…
Should I dress up?
Silly Virgin… OF COURSE you should dress up! You can go for your favorite character, your funky fresh Halloween costume, or just your skankiest attire. Just avoid the big hats and bulky costumes that might ruin the show for someone else. Or don’t dress up, see if we care, but you’ll regret it…
Is there age limitations for the show?
Though Rocky contains mature content, partial nudity, naughty language, and alien transvestites, there are NO age limits for audience members. We would encourage minors to get permission, but this is ART people! Just don’t blame us if you get grounded. Also, adult beverages will be available before and during the show, so if you’re not old enough to drink, avoid the MIP and skip the hangover.
Is there a “de-virgination” ceremony for newbies?
You betcha! Before the show, we encourage anyone who has never attended a Rocky performance to come on stage. Its a rite of passage people! But you don’t have to, you big baby.
