Need something fun and cultured to do to hold off the long two weeks before Thanksgiving break finally arrives? Well, you’re in luck, as Thursday night marks the start of the 20th annual St.
“The Rocky Horror Picture Show” is a Halloween tradition. Every October, movie theaters, including our own Tivoli Theatre, host interactive showings. This year, student theater group Cast & Crew decided it was not content with seeing the show on screen and decided to put on the show itself. The show will premiere this weekend.
