Rocky Horror comes to Temple Israel

Saturday, Feb. 23, 7 pm

Let’s do the time warp again…at Temple Israel’s “Rockin’ Hora Purimshpiel.”

The Purim skit, accompanying Temple Israel’s Purim service and the reading of Megillat Esther, will be based on the classic movie musical The Rocky Horror Picture Show, but will be suitable for audiences of all ages.

Temple Israel’s witty playwrights, Jody Mazur and Cheryl Dronzek, have turned several Rocky Horror songs into destinedto- be-classic Purim tunes such as Party at Ahaseurus’ Place and Lordy, Mordy. And, of course, there will be a Purim version of The Time Warp.

For kids, there will be a mixed-up Megillah scavenger hunt, a castle-building competition, Shaky Shushan: Esther builds herself a new home, and more, all organized by Melissa Kass. And, of course, hamentaschen and other refreshments for all.
