Local Fish Net Mafia group continues the tradition of Rocky Horror Picture Show in Columbus

By Clare Driscoll, ’19

On May 4, The Fish Net Mafia put on their monthly performance of The Rocky Horror Picture Show at the Studio 35 theater in Clintonville.

Each month, this group of actors performs their show while the Tim Curry cult classic movie runs behind them.

It’s not only the actors who participate in the showing of the film. Audience members are encouraged to yell out any and all jokes regarding the movie. There are also grab bags sold at every show full of goodies to throw at different times during the movie.

Each month also has a new theme that cast members and audience members are encouraged to dress according to. This month’s was “Science Fiction” in honor of May the fourth. This night had people dressed as their favorite Star Wars, Star Trek and X-Files characters.

This interactive experience happens on the first Saturday of every month starting at 11:30 pm and usually ending around 1:30 am. Tickets cost $5 and grab bags are $1.
