Friday, October 7 to Saturday, October 15, various times

110 W. College St, Murfreesboro, TN

The Center for the Arts

One fateful night, Brad Majors and his fiancée, Janet Weiss, a wholesome, well-behaved, utterly normal young couple in love, innocently set out to visit an old professor. Unfortunately for them, this night out is destined to be one they will never forget. A thunderstorm and a flat-tire force them to seek help at the castle of Dr. Frank ’N’ Furter, an alien, transvestite scientist with a manic genius and insatiable libido. Brad, Janet, and Frank’ N’ Furter’s cohorts are swept up into the scientist’s latest experiment. The night’s misadventures will cause Brad and Janet to question everything they’ve known about themselves, each other, love, and lust. A loving homage to the classic B sci-fi film and horror genres with an irresistible rock’ n ’roll score, The Rocky Horror Show is a hilarious, wild musical ride that no audience will soon forget.

Ramblings on Rock Springs Road

901 N. Maney Ave, Murfreesboro, TN

Oaklands Mansion

Meet local author Gilbert Gordon at Oaklands Mansion this Sunday. You are invited to join the staff and public at Oaklands to hear short stories from Gordon’s 2021 book “Ramblings on Rock Springs Road.” Gilbert Harrison Gordon spent the first half of his 60 years on his family dairy farm in Southern Rutherford County. The last 30-plus years have seen him turn to teaching as his vocation. He and his wife, Ginny, founded Cedar Hill School on a part of the family farm in 1991 and were privileged to teach their children while they taught others. Teaching still brings them both joy and purpose as they continue their “ramblings” on Rock Springs Road. Gilbert attended The Webb School where he caught his love for writing. ‘Ramblings’ centers around the farming community on Rock Springs Road. Stories include peach pie redemption, a serial killer during the 1920s, the Civil War spy Kate Patterson, and the struggles of a boy coming of age on a southern rural road.
