THE INTERNATIONAL MUSICAL PHENOMENON!
Music, lyrics and book by Richard O'Brien. Most people are familiar with the film version of the story (The Rocky Horror Picture Show) which became a worldwide phenomenon through midnight movie showings, but El Paso has only once before been treated to The Rocky Horror Show – Live On Stage! when the UTEP Dinner Theatre premiered the show back in 2005 in a run that sold out every single performance (including 7 added shows). When their car breaks down, sweethearts Brad and Janet find themselves at the castle of Dr. Frank-N-Furter (a sweet transvestite from the planet transsexual) who is performing diabolical experiments trying to create the perfect man. Mayhem ensues and every cliché from 1950’s Science Fiction movies is sent up, bent and twisted right up to the gloriously decadent and tacky finale. Come join that “sweet transvestite” and his motley crew as they do the “time warp” on the Dinner Theatre stage. Don’t dream it – Be it!

Nominated for 6 Tony Awards including Best Musical! The Prom is the hit Broadway musical about four fading Broadway stars who are in desperate need of a new stage. When they hear that trouble is brewing around a small-town Indiana prom it’s time to kick-ball-change the world! The town’s parents want to keep the dance on the straight and narrow—but when one student just wants to bring her girlfriend to prom, the entire town has a date with destiny.

Stripping steelworkers? You bet! Seeing how much their wives enjoy watching male strippers during their “Girls Night Out”, unemployed steelworkers in Buffalo, New York come up with a bold way to make some quick cash. In the process they find renewed self-esteem, the importance of friendship and the ability to have fun. As these everyday guys with their everyday bodies work through their fears, they come to discover that not only are they stronger as a group, but that the strength they find in each other gives them the individual courage to face their fears and overcome them. This hilarious musical is based on the hit British film that was nominated for Best Picture at The Academy Awards. When we staged The Full Monty at The UTEP Dinner Theatre in 2006 it sold out every single performance and held over for 5 additional performances, a definite crowd pleaser! Mature subject matter, adult language and partial nudity (no “private parts” are seen)!

During her first term at school, the two forge a bond as Miss Honey begins to recognize and appreciate Matilda's extraordinary personality. Matilda's school life isn't completely smooth sailing, however – the school's mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves to punish those who don't abide by her rules.
