Rotary Show of Shows is a benefit for the Soo Theatre Project. This show includes all local talent from the summer season.

Don Ross and Brooke Miller
Friday, October 16 at 7:30 pm.
Admission is $15 for adults and $10 for students and seniors. Group rates available.

Don Ross and Brooke Miller come back to the Soo Theatre stage. Don Ross, Canadian finger-style guitarist, is noted for the emotion and intensity of his playing as well as his use of extended technique. Ross's music borrows from blues, jazz, folk, and classical music, creating a style that he describes as "heavy wood". Brooke Miller is also a Canadian artist hailing from Prince Edward Island. Once a punk band singer that had opened for such bands as Modest Mouse and Sloan, she shifted to a more mature sound. Miller’s sound has been classified as a more refined simmering that only a few years and intense devotion to both perfecting serious craft and living meaningful life can bring to her and her music.

Rocky Horror Picture Show
Saturday, October 17 at 7:30 pm and 12 midnight
Admission is $5.

This cult classic film is the first film the Soo Theatre Project has had since it was a movie theatre ten years ago. This 1975 British musical comedy film parodies science fiction and horror films. Still in limited release nearly 34 years after its premiere, it has the longest-running theatrical release in film history. More information will be released closer to the show date.
