Lyric Brings THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW Back to Plaza Theatre

OKLAHOMA CITY — September 22, 2016 — Back by popular demand, Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma will present its hit, Richard O’Brien’s THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW, October 13 through November 5 at Lyric’s Plaza Theatre. This triennial production will feature a cast of local favorites, including Matthew Alvin Brown as Riff Raff, Lexi Windsor as Columbia, and Vince Leseney as Eddie/Dr. Scott. Tickets are on sale now, and start at $31.

“We’re doing Richard O’Brien’s THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW in the way our audiences have grown to love it — true to the source material, with lots of energy and laughs,” said Michael Baron, Lyric’s producing artistic director and director of this production. “Tickets have already been selling quickly to the show, and as Dr. Frank ‘N’ Furter would say, we’re ‘shivering with antici-pation’ for audiences to pack the Plaza.”

J. Robert Moore, recently seen in Lyric’s productions of BILLY ELLIOT and BIG FISH, will play Dr. Frank ‘N’ Furter. Moore’s other credits include BUYER AND CELLAR and PETER AND THE STARCATCHER at Austin’s ZACH Theatre. Lyric favorite Matthew Alvin Brown will play Riff Raff; Brown was recently seen in Lyric’s production of FIDDLER ON THE ROOF. Lexi Windsor was seen in Lyric’s recent production of THE DROWSY CHAPERONE; she will play Columbia. Vince Leseney, seen this summer in Lyric’s FIDDLER ON THE ROOF and THE DROWSY CHAPERONE, will play Eddie/Dr. Scott. Other members of the cast include Rodney Brazil as the Narrator, Andrew Keeler as Brad, Mattie Joyner as Janet, Haulston Mann as Rocky, Lydia Wagner as Magenta, and Sophia Macias, Amani Pope, Kristoffer Pendergreft, and Lauren Urso as the Phantoms.

The set is being designed by Adam Koch, who recently designed Lyric’s productions of DREAMGIRLS and BIG FISH. Koch is a Helen Hayes Award nominee for his designs for Washington, D.C.’s 1st Stage’s production of BAT BOY: THE MUSICAL and Signature Theatre’s KISS OF THE SPIDERWOMAN.

Richard O’Brien’s THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW artistic team will be rounded out with choreography by Ashley Wells, music direction by Brian T. Hamilton, costume design by Jeffrey Meek, lighting design by Cory Pattak, sound design by Brad Poarch, and props design by Jenny Barrett.
