On October 28th and 29th, The Rocky Horror Show returned to the Music Mountain Theater in Lambertville, NJ for two sold-out performances. Photographer John Posada was on hand to take photos.

This live production pays homage to the cult classic in all its raw interactive glory! The rice was thrown at newlyweds Brad and Janet, who are soon stranded with a flat tire during a terrible storm. You end up in the mansion of the scientist Dr. Frank N. Furter, where they’re introduced to a house full of wild characters, including a creepy butler, a weird maid, a tap-dancing groupie, and a rock-n-roll biker.

The doctor unveils his latest creation: a man-made, physically perfect muscle man named Rocky, complete “with blonde hair and a tan”. The production is an audience participation show where audiences are encouraged to dress up as their favorite characters and verbally respond to the performance as it occurs.
