The Carroll Arts Center is closing out Halloween with the twisted musical Frankenstein tale "Rocky Horror Picture Show." After Halloween ends, the inexorable march toward the holiday season begins Nov. 1 with the Carroll County Farmer's Market Authors' Day, which introduces the group's Christmas Market series. Finally, the Westminster Municipal Band will celebrate its long history and autumn with its annual fall concert, also taking place at the Carroll Arts Center.
Rocky Horror Picture Show
The Carroll Arts Center will transport audiences to Transexual Transylvania with Dr. Frank N. Furter, Riff Raff and Rocky himself with this screening of the 1975 cult classic. Audiences are invited to participate along with the film, and the Arts Center will sell a limited number of pre-packaged audience interaction kits for $5. The kits feature items the be thrown at the screen or used throughout the film and include a card to let audiences know when to participate. Carroll Arts Center director Sandy Oxx said she first saw the film in one of its initial runs, and the film has the largest cross-appeal of any of the center's movie screenings. The film is rated R and Oxx urged parental guidance for attendees.
Fans of locally grown food and locally written books can come together for authors day at the Carroll County Farmers Market, Saturday. The event features 24 local authors in diverse genres including historical fiction, science fiction, children's books and poetry.
