Costume contest, movie set for CY

RHPS-E.jpgContinuing a “time-warped” Halloween tradition, Morehead State University’s Department of Art and Design, Arts and Humanities Council and Spectrum will present its annual Costume Contest and Rocky Horror Picture Show film screening on Wednesday, Nov. 1, from 7 to 10 p.m. in the Claypool-Young Art Building.

The campus and community are invited to express themselves through costume during the contest to be held in the main gallery of Claypool-Young. The celebration starts at 7 p.m. with refreshments and live music; and the costume parade and judging begins at 7:45 p.m.

MSU Bookstore certificates will be awarded to MSU students in the amount of $75, $50 and $25 for first, second and third place, respectively.

Following the contest, the cult classic “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” will be shown in 111 Claypool-Young.

Audience members are invited to participate and relive Richard O'Brien's sinfully twisted salute to horror, sci-fi, B-movies and rock music -- a “sensual daydream to treasure forever” -- starring Tim Curry, Barry Bostwick and Susan Sarandon. Do the “Time Warp" and sing “Hot Patootie” with Meatloaf. The movie, which debuted in 1975, has been a beloved audience participation event for more than 40 years.

The event is free and open to the public and funded in part by the Buckner and Sally S. Hinkle Endowment for Humanities, Morehead State Public Radio, Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the Caudill College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences.
