Today DTC announced that for its upcoming production of The Rocky Horror Show they are looking for, "Gender-benders, the glamorously tattooed, sword and fire swallowers, snake charmers, the unique, the bizarre, the unorthodox, the oh-my-goodness-I-can't-believe-they-just-did-that-performer and anybody who has ever dreamt of being set decoration in a production of The Rocky Horror Show."

Technically you won't have any lines and you won't make any sweet cash, but if you're looking for a post-work activity or want your 15 minutes of cult fame, the theater center is going to post up at the Rose Room from 3-6 p.m. Saturday, July 26 for an opening casting call.

If you suffer from stage fright but don't want to miss out on the freaky fun? Guests and onlookers are invited. And if your next question is, "should I dress up?" By god, yes.

Here's the fine print:

"The Rocky Horror Show director and choreographer Joel Ferrell is looking to enhance the set of DTC's upcoming production with a few living decorations. Think you have a look or a talent that's over-the-top enough? Then we want to see you at the Open Call.
