The former Site:B at the Pajama Factory, 1307 Park Ave., will be transformed into Frank-N-Furter's mansion as "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" is performed at 7:30 and 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday, as well as 7:30 p.m. Oct. 25 and 7:30 and 11 p.m. Oct. 26 and 27.
The show is presented by Custom Taylored Productions, a company that has produced many theatrical shows in the area, including "The Sunshine Boys," which was staged at the Factory last July.
Producer, director and set-designer Bob Taylor, who also is performing as the criminologist, said that he likes staging plays at the Factory because of the creative energy.
"I love it here," he said. "I've met so many artistic people and everyone has a different talent that they can bring to the table."
He wanted to organize a performance of "Rocky Horror" again (the group's first production of it was in July of 2011 on the grounds of the Muncy Township Volunteer Fire Co.) because he knew it would be a lot of fun.
"This show appeals to everyone," he said. "It's like a bad B movie - everything from the way they dress to the idea of people coming from another planet and taking over, I love the whole concept."
Music Director Nick Buckman, who also plays Eddie, said that he's been a fan of "Rocky Horror" for a long time.
"It's a cult classic," he said. "I've seen it a million times. (Bob) said, 'Let's do 'Rocky Horror' and I said, 'Let's go for it!' "
Taylor and Buckman also are aware that most people who are interested in the film have seen it many times as well and probably can recite every line. But they wanted to let audiences know that since this is a live show, it will be a little different.
"Staging a live show gives us the opportunity to add touches of our own," Buckman said. " ... It's live theater and that's part of the experience. If the show always remained the same, there'd be no point in seeing it."
"It's a live show - anything can happen," Taylor added. "It's not the movie playing in the background and people pantomiming, it's totally live."
There will be, as expected, plenty of opportunities for audience participation and Taylor hopes that at least some people will show up in costume.
"Come dressed up, get involved," he said. "We want the audience to be involved. That's the whole point of this show."
At the show, bags full of rice, party hats, cards and all the usual props will be for sale, encouraging audience participation. Refreshments also will be available.
Tickets are $12 at the door. For more information, call Taylor at 220-6790.
