What to Wear

Trigger Warnings

Rocky Horror is a lot of things to a lot of people. For some, it’s just low-brow fun and a chance to be vulgar for vulgarity’s sake. For others, it’s about reclaiming and taking power away from slurs such as “slut”, “fag”, and more. Sometimes it’s both, and sometimes it’s neither. The film itself is absurd, campy, meta, and rated R.

Be advised of the following trigger warnings for our show:

  • Sexual Slurs
  • Simulated Sex
  • Sexual Assault
  • Simulated Violence
  • Very, very poor taste

Transvestite Soup shows are a safe space, and it is important to us that you feel safe at all times. This is why we are warning you in advance about potential triggers.

When you attend a Transvestite Soup show at Uptown Theater, you have until the end of “Science Fiction Double Feature” (the song at the beginning with the lips) to leave and get a refund if you decide it’s not for you.

Tips Appreciated!

Transvestite Soup is an all-volunteer cast and we do not get paid anything to put on this show. If you want to leave us a tip after the show, we really love that! It helps us pay for costumes, props, and printing programs.
