Ciliberto to star in ‘Rocky Horror’

July 5, 2012

FORESTBURGH, NY — Paul Ciliberto, host of the morning Thunder 102 radio show Ciliberto & Friends, will appear at all performances of the upcoming “Rocky Horror Show” at the Forestburgh Playhouse. A portion of ticket sales will benefit seven different local charities.

Although fans of the classic rock musical about a sweet transvestite from Transsexual, Transylvania, may be disappointed to learn that Ciliberto will not be appearing in heels and fishnets, in his role as the Narrator he will introduce the signature dance number in the show, “Time Warp.”

“The ‘Rocky Horror Show’ is a perfect vehicle for a wild and crazy guy like Paul: a crazy, sexy rock musical that audiences love so much it has become almost a cult,” said Duttweiler.

Charities supported will be St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital (July 10 and 17), Sullivan County SPCA (matinees on July 11 and July 18), YMCA of Sullivan County (evening July 11 and July 18), Boys & Girls Club of Sullivan County (July 12 and 19), Community Unity/Federation for the Homeless (July 13 and 20), GALA Catskills (July 14 and 21) and Sullivan County CASA (matinees on July 15 and 22).

Performances are Tuesday through Saturday night at 8 p.m., Wednesday matinees at 2 p.m. and Sunday matinees at 3 p.m. Visit www.FBplayhouse.org or call 845/794-1194.
