Horror Show: Fire Ravages Delgado Theatre Production, Show Must Go On
For a Delgado Community College theater department, horror came after the production was over on Saturday night. Early Sunday morning, a catastrophic fire engulfed the set of the outdoor Rocky Horror Show production as well as the majority of the department’s sound and electrical equipment. Originally thought to be an electrical fire, inspectors now believe the blaze was sparked by the smoldering of a carelessly flicked cigarette.
Director Tim Baker, a professor at Delgado, explained that the night’s Saturday performance had wrapped and the cast and crew had left for the night around 11:30 p.m. A call about the fire went into the fire department between 1:30 and 2:00 a.m. Sunday.
“It wasn’t just the set; the whole department went up in flames. It’s really such a shame. We lost cables, thirty different lighting instruments, 14 body mics; basically all of our electrical equipment…we estimate the damage between $50,000- $100,000. It will take a long time to re-establish what we lost,” said Baker.
A great deal of the department’s equipment had been relocated outdoors to the lawn at Delgado College for the production, which would be a more interactive performance with a real car and actual squirt guns. The show however, must go on and the department is working furiously to maintain the show schedule through this weekend and next weekend. Fortunately, the production lends itself to using the charred remains of the original set as the backdrop.
“We are working very hard and only missing one day of show on Thursday, but will be up for Friday and Saturday’s shows this weekend and next. The old set will be the new backdrop, which ironically fits with the show’s apocalyptic theme.”
Even though now somewhat limited, Prof. Baker promises a spectacular science fiction double feature show awaits you at City Park. The Rocky Horror Show will take place outdoors at Delgado's City Park Campus (615 City Park Ave.) with performances Friday-Saturday, April 12-13, at 7:30 and 11 p.m. and the following weekend, performances at 8 p.m. on Thursday, April 18, and on April 19-20 at 7:30 and 11 p.m.
Update: 4.11.13, 4pm- Rocky Horror has been cancelled for the weekend of April 12. The show will resume again on April 17.
Tickets are $12 and $15. Call 504-671-6360 for more information.
If you would like to make a donation to the Delgado Community College Theater Department to assist in their efforts to re-build, please mail checks to 615 City Park Ave., 70119 and have them made out to ‘Delgado Community College Theater Department’.
