COVID-19 Precautions

Effective September 1, 2021, The Parkway Theater will require either proof of negative test results from a COVID-19 test (taken no more than 72 hours prior to the event), OR proof of a fully completed COVID-19 vaccination regimen for any person in order to attend any event at our venue. The COVID-19 vaccination card must show that the completed vaccination regimen concluded at least 14 days before the date of the event the patron plans to attend.

Results from a negative test or proof of COVID-19 vaccination:

  • Must be shown at time of entry into The Parkway
  • Must match the ticket holder’s ID

Proof of vaccination may include a physical card or a photo of a complete vaccination card that matches the patron ID. Proof of a negative test may be a printed or digital test result that matches the patron ID. Children under 12, who cannot be vaccinated, can show a negative test to attend. People with a medical condition or closely held religious belief that prevents vaccination can attend with proof of a recent negative coronavirus test. If you are not vaccinated, we encourage you to wear a mask even if you’ve received a negative COVID test in the last 72 hours.

Content Warning

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

Be advised of the following content warnings for our show:

  • Dated (circa 1970s) Trans Identity Language
  • Sexual and Identity Slurs
  • Simulated Sex
  • Simulated Sexual Assault
  • Simulated Violence
  • Very, very poor taste

It is important to us that everyone who wants to attend The Rocky Horror Picture Show in Minneapolis has the tools to feel safe.

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.
