Auditions for the 2013 autumn production, Richard O'Brien's "The Rocky Horror Picture Show," scheduled at TTU's Backdoor Playhouse

Acting, singing and dancing auditions will be held from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 31, and Sunday, Sept. 1, in the Backdoor Playhouse in the Jere Whitson Buildling.

Directed by Mark H. Creter. Music direction by Mendy Richards. Choreography by Jennifer Dotson-Creter. Produced by TTU's Center Stage.

Casting is open to all interested people. Speaking roles are available for 14-16 men and women, ages 18 and up. Performers younger than 18 may audition with written permission from a parent or legal guardian. Minority performers are strongly encouraged to audition.

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. Actors are encourage to prepare 16 bars of a song to sing at the audition. Actors can sing a cappella or with accompaniment. There will be an accompanist available.

This rock musical focuses on that sweet transvestite and his motley crew doing The Time Warp and other weirdo acts on and off the stage. Complete with sass from the audience, cascading toilet paper and an array of other audience participation props, this deliberately kitschy rock 'n' roll, sci-fi gothic is more fun than ever.
