Raue Offers 'Pay What You Can Night' for Opening Night of Rocky Horror Show

Raue Center for the Arts and Williams Street Repertory are offering this new initiative to make arts accessible to all members of the community.


The Raue Center for the Arts and the Williams Street Repertory are holding a "Pay What You Can" night this Friday, Oct. 19, for the opening of The Rocky Horror Show. 

This new initiative is intended to extend the opportunity to watch quality arts and entertainment performances to all members of the community, according to Alexandra McMillin, marketing and development coordinator for the Raue, located at 26 N. Williams St. in downtown Crystal Lake.

For "Pay What You Can Night," the Raue balcony seats will be open to interested patrons who are encouraged to leave a donation. Attendees should plan to arrive early as balcony space is limited, McMillin said. 

The new deal joins a list of discounts offered by the Raue for Williams Street Repertory shows including those for students, teachers, seniors, group and military personnel, McMillin said. 

Williams Street Repertory is a non-profit production company at the Raue. The WS Rep theater company is "dedicated to sustaining an artistic process of innovative and emotionally charged work, telling diverse stories with an ever-growing company of well-respected local, regional and national artists."

More information about the theater group is available at www.wsrep.org. 

Regular tickets for The Rocky Horror Show start at $22, with student pricing at $6 for ages 18 and under, and $10 for those over 18. 

Tickets can be purchased online at www.WSREP.org, or on the Raue Center for the Arts webpage. More information is available from the Raue Box Office, 26 N. Williams St., or by calling 815-356-9212.

If you did not see this show last year at the Raue you truly missed a great theatrical experience! If you were fortunate enough to see it you know that you were part of something new here in McHenry County. The William Street Rep is just what we need to help bring a big city experience to the confines of Crystal Lake and the region. So, break out your fishnets and join the cast and the audience for a one of a kind experience at the Raue Center!
