Rocky Horror Picture Show – Dress up & Sing Along

Let’s do the time warp again! It’s the time of year to put on your fishnets, wig, and little gold shorts: Rocky Horror Picture Show returns to The Vic!

We’ll have a fantastic host to start the night (and indoctrinate Rocky Horror virgins), a costume contest, and all of the rice-tossing, newsprint-hoisting, interactive madness you can dream of. This is the film, not a live show. In this cult classic, sweethearts Brad (Barry Bostwick) and Janet (Susan Sarandon), stuck with a flat tire during a storm, discover the eerie mansion of Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry), a transvestite scientist.

As their innocence is lost, Brad and Janet meet a houseful of wild characters, including a rocking biker (Meat Loaf) and a creepy butler (Richard O’Brien). Through elaborate dances and rock songs, Frank-N-Furter unveils his latest creation: a muscular man named “Rocky.”

Amplify Her – Victoria Purple Carpet Premiere October 20

Five years in the making, the much-anticipated documentary AMPLIFY HER is here!

The Amplify Purple Carpet Tour is kicking off with back-to-back screenings in our hometown of Victoria. We have many surprises including guest appearances from the filmmakers, a few artists, and a lively discussion. Our graphic novels will be hot-off-the-press, and you will be the very first in the world to get your hands on one.

Two shows: 6pm (doors at 5:30) and 8:30pm (doors at 8pm). The 8:30 show is 19+. $15.00 TICKETS

Film Synopsis Music heals, right? Depends on the depths of the wounds. In Amplify Her, three Electronic Dance Music artists battle demons from their painful pasts to emerge as beacons in the global festival scene. Blondtron, Applecat and Lux Moderna overcome isolation, illness, and gender bias to give life to their creativity.

This visually dynamic film weaves animated motion comics created by the characters to offer intimate access into the colourful worlds of emerging female artists. Rather than ask the expected: “why aren’t there more women in this male dominated scene?”, we wonder: “what is unique about feminine expression and how might we all benefit when it flourishes?”

Filmmakers screen documentary featuring Canadian theatre and TV legends

Captured over the course of three years, Martha Burns and Susan Coyne filmed Robin and Mark rehearsing in the intimacy of Robin’s home outside of Stratford. Although Susan and Martha did not know it at the time, Robin was quite ill and would die shortly after the film was finished.

Robin & Mark & Richard III is the story of an unusual collaboration between one of Canada’s most influential directors, Robin Phillips (previously of Stratford Festival) and the gifted comedian and performer, Mark McKinney (of Kids in the Hall, Saturday Night Live and Slings and Arrows fame), as they delve into the one of Shakespeare’s most challenging plays, Richard III. Robin and Mark had not met before, and they had no idea what might happen. It was to be an adventure of two brilliant minds exploring Shakespeare’s world.

Captured over the course of three years, Martha Burns and Susan Coyne filmed Robin and Mark rehearsing in the intimacy of Robin’s home outside of Stratford. Although Susan and Martha did not know it at the time, Robin was quite ill and would die shortly after the film was finished. This film is a love letter to a passionate, complicated, irreplaceable genius. The film has been called “a wonderful look into how actors build performances over time” (Toronto Film Scene) and “equal parts interview, scene study class and in-memoriam tribute to Phillips” (Now Magazine).

The Department of Theatre invites the public to attend a free screening of “Robin & Mark & Richard III” on Tuesday, Sept. 19 at 12:30 p.m. Afterwards, join Martha Burns and Susan Coyne, the film’s producers and co-directors, as well as acclaimed Canadian actors and writers, for a question and answer period.
