This show was truly a horror, mainly due to the unorganized, unprofessional and over-all unpleasant looking actors. Nobody seemed to know what was going on and most of... continued

Description

The shows by Amber Does Dallas feature a full, live cast. Audience participation is not only encouraged – it is required!

*Shadowcasting *is any performance in which the cinema and live theater are combined to create a unique interactive experience which not only encourages audience participation – it requires it. This interaction usually comes in the form of shouting out comedic lines and the use of certain props at key points in the movie. A typical shadowcast show is made of four elements.

1.The Movie – the film being shadow-cast, playing on a screen behind the stage.

2.The Actors – the people acting out the action of The Movie, on the stage.

3.The Riffers – performers in the audience, who bring the audience into the show.

4.The Audience – the people interacting with the show.

Shadowcasting has roots in the Italian street theater of the 16th century. Performers would play their roles in the street and other actors – pretending to be part of the audience – would encourage the people around them to talk back to the actors, becoming a part of the show. But despite drawing upon this long tradition of interactive theaters, shadowcasting in its modern form is a relatively young art.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

It all began in the early 1970s when a young musician/actor named Richard O’Brien teamed with director Jim Sharman to create a musical tribute to classic horror movies and classic rock. Originally titled They Came From Denton High, the show was renamed The Rocky Horror Show just before its’ first preview. It opened in London in June 1973 and was an instant success. It opened in the USA nine months later, at the legendary Roxy Theater in Los Angeles. The Roxy’s owner, record producer Lou Adler, introduced the show to several executives from 20th Century Fox and convinced them that a film adaptation of _Rocky Horror _would be a hit.

_The Rocky Horror Picture Show _tells the story of Brad and Janet – a young, ordinary, healthy couple. On the way to announce their engagement to their favorite teacher, Dr. Scott, the two are waylaid by a flat tire. With a storm moving in, the two are forced to seek shelter at a nearby spooky castle, where the bizarre Dr. Frank N. Furter is hosting a party for several unconventional conventionists. What follows is a descent into decadence, as Frank violates the laws of nature and basic decency in creating the perfect man – the titular Rocky – and hijinks ensue.
