Georgia Town Shuts Down Rocky Horror Production For Being Too Risque

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooBroadway Babies

Boo!!

So not cool!!

The mayor of Carrollton, Georgia shut down the production of their version of The Rocky Horror Show after he caught a glimpse of rehearsals. Wayne Garner and his staff made the decision after they watched a video of the cast rehearsing and decided it was just too risque.

Even when promoters and organizers promised to restrict attendance to adults only, the mayor still wouldn't budge.

That really sucks, Mr. Mayor!

The director of the show says that "the show must go on" and is planning a fundraising campaign to begin on Monday, hoping to match a donation of $5,000 so that the show can be presented at a private venue.

Let's hope they can make this happen! The Rocky Horror Show is over 30 years old! Yes, it's a little raunchy, but everybody knows it's an adults-only show. Bring it back! Bring it back!

To catch a glimpse of the show, check it out above.

    Of course it's too risque… it has positive messages like 'don't judge a book by its cover' and 'don't dream it, be it'…. we certainly wouldn't want people to start thinking with their own head! :/

    Wayne Garner is obviously in a Time Warp" of his own. How in the world did he not know what Rocky Horror was about in advance. It has been around for over 35 years.

    ok yeah BUT.. why should the tax payers PAY for something many would not enjoy representing their city with this? The show is fine but I don't see why tax dollars need to put it on. He probably made the right decision and should go fix a pothole with that money instead

    There are wayyyyy to many things out today that are worse than this on a scale of rique! Has this mayor listened to the radio lately or watched regular tv? RH is a classic and the show must go on!

    First, it's kids putting on the production…while some may not have a problem with that, the city is trying to avoid a horde of pissed off parents by not allowing the production to be shown in a city owned/operated theater.

    It is NOT unheard of for a city government to try to avoid pissing off the taxpayers by NOT allowing this kind of production to be displayed in a theater paid for by tax payer dollars.

    Also, one of he production's own people secretly recorded it and sent it to the mayor…so perhaps some of the people involved with the production aren't as comfortable with this as everyone would like to think.

    Yet more evidence that America is returning to conservativism. Obama will be gone in a year and so will gay marriage. Ha ha ha!

    Die Mad Dog: Why would you want to go back in time, are you going to give up internet, cell phone, porn? Only in Southern states would this happen, backward hicks.

    Re: marvinthemartin – First, I'm advocating returning to common sense. Obama has done a terrible job with the economy and gay marriage has no place in a country founded on Christian values. I'm not saying we should give up technology, etc. Second, if you're so opposed to views like mine, why do you stereotype? You view people with these beliefs as backward hicks from southern states.

    Re: Mad Dog – "founded on christian values" Which is exactly why the US is a complete mess.

    Re: Mad Dog – This country was not founded upon Christian values, but upon religious tolerance. That means that nobody in this country has a right to impose their "religious morals" upon anyone else. The Cultural Arts center in Carrollton had already approved the funding and everything was in place, so if content was such an issue it should have never been granted in the first place. Furthermore, Carrollton is a college town, the play aimed at an adult audience, and there were warning against children seeing the play put in place. The older conservatives have bought the town and control it. I went to school there and experienced the bigotry.

    I am from Carrollton. I have lived here for 25 years. I am SOOO embarrassed by this. First please know this opinion is NOT the majority. As for taxpayers having to pay for it, I have never gotten to choose the plays. There have been others I didn’t like, but it was my choice not to go. Also a portion of our taxes will always go to things we don’t personally like. The really sad thing is that we have homeless children in our schools and yet this is what Mr. Garner wants to take his stand on. This is more about reelection and getting headlines. As someone from Carrollton I support this production!

    These are NOT kids putting this play on. I have friends in the production. These are adults. This is not a teen production. Also enough money has been raised to pay the $2000 it would have cost the city. This is not about money. This is about attention. As a long term Carrollton resident, trust me on this fact. The city has refused to allow the musical continue after personal funds were offered to cover 100% of the costs.

Donations have been raised to cover this expenses and it was refused.

    Re: supadupamom – Not kids. Adult production only. Trust me I'm from Carrollton.

    In actuality you can't put on a production of the show. The rights of the show are never released in that way. You have to have the movie playing in the background and do the play in front of it. It is labeled as a movie screening.

    I live in Carrollton, and go to school there. It's completely baffling that this type of ignorance and political tyranny still exists. There are loads of petitioners to negate this, yet the local government acts as if that should have no effect on their actions. I hate this, it's not as if this play hasn't been around for years (and with the popularity of the film, this whole issue could've been halted if the local government had watched it prior to making decisions about the show).
