Junior Chamber of Commerce Players

Carnegie Science Center
October 14
6—10 p.m.

Science fiction and hard science will conjure a Friday night filled with freaky fun along the North Shore.

Carnegie Science Center‘s latest no-kids night features activities inspired by Jim Sharman’s 1975 British-American musical comedy horror film, The Rocky Horror Picture Show—widely considered to be cinema’s first “midnight movie.”

Unleash your inner Brad and Janet as you do the Time Warp, watch excerpts from Rocky Horror, and dance to a selection of eccentric tunes from the film’s catchy soundtrack. Leading the dance floor antics will be actors from the Junior Chamber of Commerce Players—Pittsburgh’s official Rocky Horror Picture Show floorshow cast—who will also act out scenes from the movie.

Don that creepiest Transylvanian Convention costume and strike a pose in front of the Science Center’s green screen for a Halloween photo shoot. Get into the spooky spirit as you make your own “Frank N. Teddy” stuffed creatures with LEDs, have your face painted, and rock out to live music by Expen$e in the Robo Lounge.

During the Works Theater live show, Frankenscience, attendees can explore the science of reanimation, journey through Mary Shelly’s chilling tale to help bring Frankenstein’s monster to life, and try out shocking experiments on a Van de Graff generator.

Rocky Horror fans will enjoy exclusive after-hour access to four floors, and will be among the first to get a sneak peek of the Science Center’s newest exhibit, BodyWorks. Opening to the public on October 15, BodyWorks uses more than 40 brand new interactive exhibits, live shows and demonstrations to explore the “blood, guts, bones, brains, senses, and mechanics” that make us all living animals. Party-goers can pump a heart, stretch some intestines, see preserved human organs, and more. Perfectly timed with Halloween, of course.

The event will also feature cash bars, snacks for sale, and a discount on laser shows.
