The Rocky Horror Show CR 2013
The Rocky Horror Show is a musical with music, lyrics and a book by Richard O'Brien. A humorous tribute to the science fiction and B horror movies of the late 1940s through early 1970s, the musical tells the story of a newly engaged couple getting caught in a storm and coming to the home of a mad transvestite scientist unveiling his new creation, a muscle man named Rocky Horror.
Rich Heritage of Cedar Rapids Theatre Company - RHCR Theatre
"A Cedar Rapids area theatre company with a mission to bring movies to the STAGE"!
Performing arts have a long history Cedar Rapids, IA. From the Cherry Sisters, to the many movie houses that once dotted the downtown landscape, to the current productions at the local community theater (which at times, rival the quality, execution, & talent of their Broadway originals). Singing, dancing, art, photography, almost ANY incarnation of artistic expression has been prevalent in the city since it was founded in 1849.
One thing that has been lacking in Cedar Rapids that can be found in other artistic cities such as Austin, TX and Minneapolis, MN, is an abundance of PAID opportunities for these wonderful artists. Time and time again, talented individuals donate hours and hours of their time and talents, with nothing monetary in return. Their art or their performance may be critically acclaimed or widely attended but accolades such as those, while great, do not support the day to day life of an artist.
To that end, RHCR Theatre strives to compensate participants in its endeavors. No one will be able to retire on their earnings from one of our productions but it at least will be some small stipend to help thank them for their participation in artistic expression in Cedar Rapids.
In the summer of 2015 Matt and Deidra were given an idea to do a kids production. After much thought and consideration they thought this is something should be part of RHCR Theatre. Not only does Children's Theater allow for a bigger cast, and it exposes another generation to life on the stage.
RHCR Theatre thanks you in advance for your support of our mission!
