Rachel Peavler, a junior from Fort Wright plays Columbia in the ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ on Friday, Oct. 31 in the Capitol Arts Center. Peavler described the cast as being “accepting and outgoing”. “People can come out of their shell in Rocky. They put on their costumes and suddenly they are the character,” Peavler said. 

WKU held its annual performance of “Rocky Horror Picture Show” on Halloween at the Capitol Arts Theater. The original “Rocky Horror Picture Show” film was displayed behind WKU students’ live re-enactment of the film. The WKU Campus Activities Board has been putting on this event for over 40 years.

“Halloween isn’t Halloween without Rocky Horror,” said Jeanie Battaglia, a sophomore at WKU who played Trixie in the performance.

The cast of the show rehearsed for three weeks leading up to the performance and consisted of both experienced and first-time Rocky performers.

“All the people are great and I love it so much.” Amira Byrant is a graduate student at WKU who will be graduating in December, making this her third and last performance as Riff Raff. “It’s definitely an experience you can’t anticipate, and it’s a really fun way to spend my Halloween,” Bryant said.
