This May, Cybil Unrest and Nick Fedoroff of Truth or Dare Productions have a special treat, paying tribute to not one, but two motion picture classics.
Burlesque, magic, and cabaret have been practiced for decades, if not centuries, but Truth or Dare offers the chance to enjoy a new spin on cult classics “Clue vs. Rocky Horror” in the historic Nevada Theatre in Nevada City.
On Monday, May 13, attendees can show up at 7 p.m. to have a craft cocktail from the Golden Era Lounge while mingling in the foyer. Doors for the show will open at 7:25 p.m. with Lucky Cory Holden’s intro song and pre-show act. At 7:30 p.m. naughty fun featuring burlesque and cabaret dancers begins, with outlandish performances and costumes dripping in Rocky Horror and Clue regalia. Prizes will be awarded for best Clue or Rocky Horror costumes.
Clue, the movie based on the popular board game, begins at a dinner party hosted by Wadsworth (Nick Fedoroff). These dinner party guests who have been given aliases, Mrs. Peacock (Roxie Rochambeau), Miss Scarlet (Cybil Unrest), Mr. Green (Sabrina Florence), professor Plum (Andria Starling), and Col. Mustard (Guy Vigor), along with the maid Yvette (Rebel Rose), and Mr. Boddy (Leon G. Ray), are all suspects when Boddy admits to blackmailing his visitors and turns up murdered, and together they try to figure out who among them is the killer.
Rocky Horror Picture Show, a humorous tribute to the science fiction and horror B-movies of the late 1940s through to the early 1970s, the musical tells the story of creation, love, hate, adventure, and most of all, sex; the story begins in Denton, Ohio as Brad Majors and Janet Weiss, after being engaged, travel to see the man who founded it. After getting caught in a storm and coming to the castle of a mad transvestite alien scientist from the planet Transsexual in the galaxy of Transylvania, Dr Frank-N-Furter, unveiling his new creation, a sort of Frankenstein-style monster in the form of an artificially made, fully grown, physically perfect muscle man named Rocky, complete “with blond hair and a tan.”
Attendees must be at least 21 years old. Tickets to this show (or any Monday Cabaret) online for $20 in advance at Tiny.CC/MondayCabaret or at the door for $25. For more information on the performers and upcoming shows, follow “Truth or Dare Productions” on Facebook and Instagram.
