The Beaumont chapter of PFLAG will screen “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” with a full shadow cast, 8 p.m., Saturday, at the Gig on Crockett Street in downtown Beaumont.

PFLAG (Parent and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) is the United States’ largest organization uniting families and allies with people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer (LGBTQ). 

All proceeds will benefit Pride Fest 2018. 

“The show is a great way to support PFLAG and Pride Fest because you’re getting an entire night of entertainment for less than $20,” director Donny Avery said. “Our shadow cast will be in costume, lip-syncing to the music of the film, so you’re getting the best of the musical and movie.”

The event will feature a pre-screening party and raffle.

“From about eight to ten o’clock, people are invited to come dance, and those who are over 21 can come take advantage of the cash bar,” Avery said. “During this time, we’ll also be raffling off tickets to Beaumont Community Players’ Valentine’s Day event, ‘Love Letters,’ that will feature local music favorite Book of Days, a decadent dessert and coffee bar.”

Avery said the movie is a performance for the audience as well as the actors. 

“‘Rocky Horror’ has an interactive element that allows the audience to yell vulgar things to the cast and throw props at them, and we will be selling prop bags for $5,” he said. “We also encourage people to dress up and really immerse themselves in madness that is ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show.’” 

Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door.
