GRAND LEDGE- The small town of Grand Ledge is relatively conservative during the day, but on some Saturdays at midnight, fans of all ages come out to the Sun Theatre for a night of fun. Dylan Sowle organizes the showings of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” at the theater with the help of his friends. “I first went to ‘Rocky Horror’ at the Sun when I was in my sophomore year of high school, and I gradually got more involved,” Sowle said. “Around my senior year of high school, my friend who organized the showings decided she didn’t want to do it any more, so I helped take over so we could keep ‘Rocky Horror’ going in Grand Ledge.”
Sowle is on his sixth year of running the event that draws fans from as far as the Flint and Detroit areas. Die-hard fans
Russ Duce of Grand Blanc has been involved with the “Rocky Horror” community for four years and travels as far as Chicago to see casts perform.
