The release of extra seats to the Friday night Rocky Horror sing-a-long event has seen a speedy snapping up of almost all the tickets.
Part of the Festival of the Un(Dead) or FoUND, which hits the CBD this weekend, the sing-a-long is proving to be one of the most popular events. Organiser Andrew Brigden says at 5pm today there were 10 tickets left for the midnight show and one for the 930pm session.
With a series of ticketed and community events on offer over a single hair-raising weekend from Friday 26 to Sunday 28 October, FoUND provides something for everyone - for example, an all-ages Skeleton Hunt, organised by students on Ara’s Event Management Diploma course will take kids and their parents into selected shops and cafes to collect clues and loot, while the Christchurch Zombie Run gives adults a chance to fulfil their post-apocalyptic dreams as they outrun the undead.
“The mass dance event called Thrill the World which will see thousands around the world dancing to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” at the same time, is also looking popular. Following Thrill the World there’ll be a Zombie Run around the inner city, with prizes for things like the best costume and catching the most humans,” says Andy.
David Ladderman and Lizzie Tollemache, who have just returned from touring in the Northern Hemisphere, bring two shows to FoUND – the children’s “Trick or Treat and the R16 “Circus of Horrors”.
“Circus of Horrors includes two world records – one for contortion and one for fire eating. I’m really looking forward to seeing that on the stage at the Isaac Theatre Royal,” says Andy.
