An outlandish 2008 celebration of dirty, gory excess, replete with family melodrama, mysterious illnesses, mind-blowing future-drugs, designer organ repossessions, a few surprising cameos, and a superabundance of bloody stabs and slices, Repo! will be brought to life in front of your eyes by Addicted to the Knife, an all-costumed, all-dancing, all-lip syncing troupe of actors who have excelled at performing the film Rocky Horror-style! All this, and musical numbers too!

Pre-Show starts at 11:30pm – Film starts at Midnight!
