The Rocky Horror Picture Show LIVE at The Wilma is staged by the Montana Actor’s Theatre each year, with auditions taking place in September and rehearsals running intensely in October.

The set, which fills the entire up stage of the Wilma in downtown Missoula, is built at Montana State University-Northern in Havre as part of a stage craft class.

First produced in 2009, the show was seen by Joe Nickell, formerly of the Missoulian, as “the most daring and biggest event in modern local theater… the show was simply spectacular, with an array of local talent and glitzy production that equaled anything you’d find in a city 10 times our size.”

That summary is still true of the production. To view photos from this year’s cast, follow this link to the Missoula Current’s multi media section.
